Iowa – -( Hey everyone! John from Brownells, Inc. here! We have an update for all of you in California ordering standard capacity magazines. If you’re in California, please read this entire post.

Shop in-stock gun and rifle magazines on over here.

Initially, our review of the recent Duncan v. Becerra 9th Circuit Court ruling led us to believe we could ship standard capacity magazines to California residents immediately. Upon further legal review, however, we are not able to begin shipping right now.

Why isn’t Brownells, Inc. shipping standard capacity magazines to California now?

  • Although the recent ruling in Duncan v. Becerra case would seem to allow for shipment of standard capacity magazines to begin immediately, the legal transfer/possession of standard capacity magazines in California cannot happen until the case’s mandate has been filed, which it has not been yet happened. Essentially, California law remains unchanged until the case’s mandate has been filed.

What is happening with your order?

  • All standard capacity magazine orders for California are being placed on hold. With that said though, we are holding your place in line and will ship your order immediately upon the mandate’s filing. We will provide you with updates on your order as developments unfold. I will also do my best to update you guys as I can.

Can California customers still order standard capacity magazines?

  • Yes, we will continue accepting orders for standard capacity magazines. Your order will just be placed on a hold as noted above.

We sincerely apologize for the confusion as we are doing our absolute best to serve California customers as quickly as possible. I would like to thank you guys for being so patient and understanding as we navigate our way through this!

If you would like to make changes to your order or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can call 1800-741-0015, use the live chat on our website, or reach out to me on Facebook.

Isn’t it interesting that when the magazine restrictions were signed into law the effects were instantly inacted. Now that it was overturned, well maybe it really wasn’t.


Nothing like hiking the prices $3-5 per magazine. You will make lots of $$, anyway…why gouge? I just bought the M2 10pk from Brownells for $105 shipped.
