    Staying outside of the USA, most of my magazines are marked like that as that was the era I got into Glocks.

    Even 9 or 10 round Glock 27 magazines are marked as such. That is what I found the most novel as the ban was on 10+ magazines.

    I don't have any 9mm 33 rounders and the .40 ones are a new invention.
    I will ask a few friends.

    I have mags marked like this for 27, 17, 23 and even 20.
    The 380 magazine has ribs and has no place for markings.

    You can find mags on Ebay I just bought a lot of 4 G27 mags for $43. All in great shape. I don't recommend paying for it with your Paypal account. Ebay isn't strict on there "no gun parts" rule, but Paypal is and will ban your account and you credit card number for paying for anything related to guns (which doesn't make since because Ebay owns Paypal). I paid for mine with a money order.

    The glock 22 I just bought has a 15 round glock magazine. It is marked: RESTRICTED LE/GOVT ONLY. Does this mean I will not be able to use this clip if the new gun law are enforced? The clip has a date of 9.13.94.

    It would seem to me that if the magazine was in use, the marking would not be visible...:supergrin:

    Those markings are from the last big gun ban. Details and particulars for the one that's being pitched now have yet to be worked out.

    As long as your state does not have any ban, you are go to go.

    Check out this restricted magazine I scored off Gunbroker

    Now if I could find a G18 magazine with the same Restricted in USA stamp on it.....

    Nah, you can use it.

    Just remember that everytime you put in your pistol, it makes the anti-gunners cry.:crying:

    I have a Sigma 16 round mag from the 94-04 ban stamped the same way.

    I live in CA with the 10rd limit. Even if you have one larger (e.g.;15rd) you can limit it to 10rds with a rivet and epoxy and it's now a 10rd and legal.

    During the AWB of 94 to 04, all Glock magazines outside of the U.S. that held over 10rd's, were marked with the "Restricted in USA" stamp.

    I paid $27 for it off gunbroker.com Did I get lucky? Absolutley.

    I don't know if anyone else marked their magazines that way. Sig, HK, Beretta, etc......

    :cool:

    I have a bunch of Sig, Beretta, Glock and Hi Power mags like that.

    I also have a couple of Colt lowers with that stamped on the magwell.

    Just a reminder of what can happen here...

    If eBay owns pay pal, and they will ban ur card number, they are obviously pretty strict.
