    The whole thing is semantics. Interpreting the law is what the courts are for. Going to court usually runs a minimum of 5 figures.

    Garland clips are NOT a magazine and the law does not allow words or terms to be used “interchangeably”. In law a word means what it is defined to mean and nothing is interchangeable.

    Closet thing I can find is in the CCC which says:

    cartridge magazine means a device or container from which ammunition may be fed into the firing chamber of a firearm; (chargeur)

    Which under that broad aspect an en bloc clip for a Garand would fall. And according to the CCC it seems to:

    (2) Paragraph (1)(a) does not include any cartridge magazine that

    (a) was originally designed or manufactured for use in a firearm that

    (i) is chambered for, or designed to use, rimfire cartridges,

    (ii) is a rifle of the type commonly known as the “Lee Enfield” rifle, where the magazine is capable of containing not more than 10 cartridges of the type for which the magazine was originally designed, or

    (iii) is commonly known as the U.S. Rifle M1 (Garand) including the Beretta M1 Garand rifle, the Breda M1 Garand rifle and the Springfield Armoury M1 Garand rifle;
