Large Capacity Ammunition Magazines in Ohio

Posted on January 1, 2012

See our Large Capacity Ammunition Magazines policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.

Ohio has no law restricting large capacity magazines. However, Ohio includes within the definition of “[a]utomatic firearm” any semi-automatic firearm designed or specially adapted to fire more than thirty-one cartridges without reloading, other than a firearm chambering only .22 caliber short, long, or long-rifle cartridges.1 For further information, see Machine Guns/Automatic Firearms in Ohio.
