      Magazine Capacity Limits?

      Hi, I am about to purchase a new firearm, a FN Five-Seven, and I would just like to make sure that I don't make a purchase that might not be legal. I have read as many gun laws of Washington as I could possibly find and the size of a magazine, be it pistol or rifle, was never addressed. This gun comes standard with 3 magazines which can either be 10 round or 20 round. I would like to have the 20 round magazines just because while at the range the lack of reload time would be nice, but if it isn't legal to have them, I am happy to order the 10 round magazines.

      Also, I know that this isn't pertaining to hand guns, but is there a limit on rifle magazine sizes? I see many rifles being sold that come with 10, 20 and 30 round magazines and, again, I would not like to own anything that would be illegal and make firearm owners look bad.


      Thank you for any help anyone can provide.

      Kenny.

      There are no restrictions for ownership of magazines in WA state for rifles or pistols, however when using the gun for hunting a magazine restriction may be in place.

      Awesome. I don't plan on hunting with any of the handguns or rifles that I am going to be buying. I enjoy shooting, but I haven't found the killer in me.

      Thank you for the quick response and information.

      Kenny.

      I'm just confirming that is accurate. I love WA gun laws! Let's hope we can keep them protected. Or at least stock up on tons of hi-caps now.

      I live about 5 minutes from my local gunshop... so that puts me about 10 minutes from walking out with a new handgun, anytime I want!
