Default Handgun Magazine Capacity Limit?

Is there a limit on magazine capacity for handguns in Illinois? Can't find any solid info on this.

Can't have more than 30 rounds for a rifle. Doubt there should be any thing more than that allowed for a handgun.

I think it depends on where you are at. I believe the city has a 15 round limit. Don't believe there are limits elsewhere in the state.

Just searched an Il gun law site. There are no state limits on magazine capacity for handguns or rifles. There is however certain jurisdiction laws by area. Guess you need to find out per area what is allowed. That truly complicates things unneedlessly.

My gun shop said they couldn't sell anything more than a 30 round mag. Guess that's the jurisdiction thing.

Even though some cities still have magazine size limits on the books, I believe it's all pre-empted by state law for handguns. State law has no size limits for magazines.

Here is the relevant sections of the law:

(b) Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this Section, the regulation, licensing, possession, and registration of handguns and ammunition for a handgun, and the transportation of any firearm and ammunition by a holder of a valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card issued by the Department of State Police under this Act are exclusive powers and functions of this State. Any ordinance or regulation, or portion of that ordinance or regulation, enacted on or before the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly that purports to impose regulations or restrictions on a holder of a valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card issued by the Department of State Police under this Act in a manner that is inconsistent with this Act, on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly, shall be invalid in its application to a holder of a valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card issued by the Department of State Police under this Act.


(c) Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this Section, the regulation of the possession or ownership of assault weapons are exclusive powers and functions of this State. Any ordinance or regulation, or portion of that ordinance or regulation, that purports to regulate the possession or ownership of assault weapons in a manner that is inconsistent with this Act, shall be invalid unless the ordinance or regulation is enacted on, before, or within 10 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly. Any ordinance or regulation described in this subsection (c) enacted more than 10 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly is invalid. An ordinance enacted on, before, or within 10 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly may be amended. The enactment or amendment of ordinances under this subsection (c) are subject to the submission requirements of Section 13.3. For the purposes of this subsection, "assault weapons" means firearms designated by either make or model or by a test or list of cosmetic features that cumulatively would place the firearm into a definition of "assault weapon" under the ordinance.

Thanks guys. I found a PDF from IL about Illinois state gun laws and no where in it does it state anything about the possession of a magazine size/capacity greater than a specific amount. It actually doesn't say anything about magazines at all.

I don't believe this is correct.

O.P. Should do some more research.

You have to look deeper than state law because certain cities and counties do whatever the fuck they want. I.E. Cook/Shitcago and Aurora.

Every resource I could find says that handguns are preempted by state law. Also, this is what we were taught in the CC classes.

Also, read the law again very carefully and you'll see that it spells it out fairly clearly.

Of course, it means jack shit because of exactly what Chester Copperpot stated. Cities think they can do whatever the fuck they want, the law be damned (after all this is Illinois). If you went to Shitcago and got pinched for carrying a handgun with a 16 round mag, you'd have to become the test case and sue them.

Read the bottom of page 12 top of 13. State law preempts all city gun restrictions. There is no state restriction on magazine capacity. However I do agree that cities will do whatever they want.

The Bud's Gun Shop restriction list is much longer but just figured I'd get the pertinent info. Just because it says the law is what the state says, doesn't mean Rahm and his merry liberal men in Chicago don't do what ever the fuck they want.

The IL Concealed Carry Bill should preempt any of the magazine restrictions on handguns.

There is NO law restricting magazine capacity in IL PERIOD. There is only local ordinance on rifles. Any restrictions on handguns was preempted by the concealed carry law. Since the CC law only pertains to handguns and you cannot legally CC a long gun, they can make ordinances restricting them. If anybody tells you any different they are WRONG

This is what I was told at MegaSports in Plainfield. How ever there are still the restriction laws on the books, so it is only thier policy that they will not sell certain assault style rifles and mags that hold more than 15 or was it 13, I cant really recall. But then when I go to Midwest guns in Lyons I can get the assault style rifle and 30 + round mags (Just Purchased the Sig MPX with 30 round mags).

When you say assault rifle, you mean rifle right?

Hitler coined the term "assault rifle". Our military defines assault rifle as any rifle capable of automatic fire. Liberals and other anti-gun losers adopted the term assault rifle out of ignorance because it makes them sound scary. How many of you have an AR the fires as an automatic?

Im not trying to perpetuate the horseshit, Im trying to educate so people stop using the wrong terminology.

Now, those who bave served in tbe military I can understand using the term assault rifle because they in fact used automatic weapons so that's what they are accustomed to, but for the rest of us they are modern sporting rifles, or jist simply rifles.

True but long guns typically refer to any type of rifle or shotgun.
