Lets say you are active duty or reserve, and your unit has issued you GI 30 round mags to use during training. Can you legally use these same mags in your civillian rifle (pre or post ban)? Could you get busted for not using the mags in a military rifle, or while conducting military training?

The idea behind LE/Govt magazines is that they only be used in an official capactiy. Ian

That's only if they are post-ban mags. If they are pre-ban, then go ahead and use them. Vulcan94

Are "new" military magazines marked as such?

That's correct. Whenever I turn in my commission, I'll have to give up my high-caps. Ian

And as a matter of fact, I was coaching USMC rifle & pistol qualifications the weekend before last and conducting guard mounts since then. Among the many magazines I observed while doing amnesty checks and other related tasks, I saw plenty of M-16 and M9 magazines I would consider to be "Post Ban", and were specifically marked "Restricted to Gov't/LE use only". I can't think of any circumstance that I would want those around the house. On the other hand, I've bought NIW wrapper M-16 and M9 magazines, even with stamped NSNs (and lacking the above mentioned markings), the manufacturer's info, at gun shows (ooh, how evil). Those must all have been "Pre Ban". Now if you will allow me some time, I think I had better go find all of those dated receipts! Semper Fi Dave
