It seems to me that it is not worth the hassle running into an LEO that is unclear on the laws regarding the use of legally owned high capacity magazines owned prior to 2000 for use in a new gun. Don't they just lock you up and say to let the court sort it out? I don't think it's worth the hassle.
Yup, perfectly legal.
As far as the cops locking you up and letting the court sort it out, they can do that for anything.
