    What is the true legal definition of a magazine, and what exact part is it?
    I know that the part that is legally the firearm is the receiver/frame, but what or the magazine?
    Is it the body, the spring, the floor plate, the follower, all as one? What is a magazine?:confused:

    so it that to say that if I have an AKM magazine and I slip off the floor plate, but leave in the follower and spring, then it is no longer a magazine?

    For legalese, it's a "feeding" device.

    My mouth is a feeding device. Am I not allowed to open my mouth very wide or will it be considered high capacity? :rolleyes:

    When it comes to section 922r the magazine is actually 3 parts (Body, follower and floor plate). I venture to say, if someone wanted to mae an isue of it, just the body is a magazine.
