I might be a little late on this one, but is there a ban coming that will ban the importation of pre94 Hi-cap mags? Will this effect prices, if takes place. I saw something about this on the SW homepage.

Buy all you can!!! Look what happened here in CA. I loaded up before the law went into effect (no more mags over ten rounds here), but if I break some of my mags, that’s it! LOAD UP regardless of the potential threatening legislation.

Actually, for now, at least, you can still buy replacment parts for your existing magazines, as well as get them repaired or refinished, as needed.
