    Eric,
    One of your moderators is calling me a liar after my latest posting for the 4 pre-ban Glock 17 mags I own.

    I know I purchased the magazines pre Sep 13, 1994. I've also been told by a New York official that the mags are true pre-ban, as there is no space available after the 9mm marking.

    The person and the moderator are quoting a bunch of crap without stating facts, and then they closed the thread so I can't reply.

    Also, this is an extract from the Northeast Shooter's Forum board:

    After 09/13/94, manufacturers were required to mark the mags on the mag body.

    Quote:
    (c) Large capacity ammunition feeding devices manufactured after
    September 13, 1994. (1) Each person who manufactures or imports any
    large capacity ammunition feeding device manufactured after September
    13, 1994, shall legibly identify each such device with a serial number.
    Such person may use the same serial number for all large capacity
    ammunition feeding devices produced.
    (i) Additionally, in the case of a domestically made large capacity
    ammunition feeding device, such device shall be marked with the name,
    city and State (or recognized abbreviation thereof) of the manufacturer;
    (ii) And in the case of an imported large capacity ammunition
    feeding device, such device shall be marked:
    (A) With the name of the manufacturer, country of origin, and,
    (B) Effective July 5, 1995, the name, city and State (or recognized
    abbreviation thereof) of the importer.
    (iii) Further, large capacity ammunition feeding devices
    manufactured after September 13, 1994, shall be marked ``RESTRICTED LAW
    ENFORCEMENT/GOVERNMENT USE ONLY'' or, in the case of devices
    manufactured or imported for export, effective July 5, 1995, ``FOR
    EXPORT ONLY.''
    (2) All markings required by this paragraph (c) shall be cast,
    stamped, or engraved on the exterior of the device. In the case of a
    magazine, the markings shall be placed on the magazine body.
    (3) Exceptions--(i) Metallic links. Persons who manufacture or
    import metallic links for use in the assembly of belted ammunition are
    only required to place the identification marks prescribed in paragraph
    (c)(1) of this section on the containers used for the packaging of the
    links.
    (ii) Alternate means of identification. The Director may authorize
    other means of identifying large capacity ammunition feeding devices
    upon receipt of a letter application, in duplicate, from the
    manufacturer or importer showing that such other identification is
    reasonable and will not hinder the effective administration of this part.

    I appreciate your assistance with this matter.

    Thanks.
