Selling Handgun w/ Mag Capacity over limit

I'm planning to sell my SW M&P which has two 16rnd mags. It's a to a friend who also lives in MD. Any gotchas I should be aware of using a VA FFL for the transfer?

You'll find out your issues when you try to use a VA FFL.

Mags of over 10rds cannot be transferred within the state limits.

You can't. It needs to be transferred to him through a MD FFL. The mags can be transferred to him in VA as long as you don't offer them to him while in Maryland

Ah thanks! OK. So use my normal FFL for the handgun and deal with the mags separately.

It was going to be a non issue because I was going to keep the mags but I think I'm done with 9mm in general.

You can transfer the mags out of state. Sell the pistol WITHOUT the mags.

Take your friend to lunch in Virginia and give the magazines to him there. When you sell the gun, I'd recommend clearly stating on the bill of sale that you are selling the gun without magazines.

Just be clear, handgun MUST (by Federal Law), be transferred through an FFL in the buyer's state of residence.

Long guns may be transferred at an FFL in any state. But the long gun must be legal in both the state of the transfer, and the state of residence of the buyer.

Yeah I had a huge brain fart on that part. Just trying to CYA on the mags.

Thanks for all the quick feedback.

But... The person transferring wouldn't be legal to do so inside of Maryland unless he was also an active MD or Fed LEO.
