Default HELP. need magazine capacity limiter info

Hello,
I hope this is the right place to list this.
Moving to CA soon for job (may quit instead) and need to know how to LEGALLY limit my AR10 mags to the 10 round limit.
I've been searching all night.
Can anyone point me to an actual statute that gives the accepted method of limiting a 'large capacity' magazine to acceptable limits?

Thanks,
Brig

Sell 'em and buy 10 rounders, may be easier that way. Sorry can't help other than to tell you to avoid this state. I'm a lifelong Californian but I'm getting the heck outta here as soon as I can.

I would rather twist off my own head than move to Kali (or NY, or NJ, or Hellinois)

Is the move to Cali permanent, or just a few years? If you plan to escape to the free world in a few years get a safe deposit box at a bank and store your standard cap mags for the future and buy some 10 rounders.

Anyway to store the mags for that emergency in the future? Just acquire some 10 rounders.

Also you can simply disassemble the mags and have them taken apart while in state.

Apparently if the modifications are permanent it is legal.

Manufacturing non large-capacity magazines

Penal Code 16740 states:
As used in this section, "large-capacity magazine"
means any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept
more than 10 rounds, but shall not be construed to include any of
the following:
(A) A feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it
cannot accommodate more than 10 rounds.
This means that one can manufacture non large-capacity magazines if the alterations to what would otherwise be a large-capacity magazine are permanent.
In sworn testimony, representatives of the California Department of Justice have stated that it is their opinion that the types of modifications presented in the failed "detachable magazine permanence" rulemaking would suffice to be permanent alterations to large-capacity magazines to exclude them from the law. The relevant alterations from the failed rulemaking include:
Continuous ribbon or ribbons of welding
A rivet fixed in place with epoxy

Not sure how to do it, but hope this helps!
