Any value to these mags compared to current production versions? I have 5-6 Okay brand ban era (Assault Weapons Ban) magazines marked 'For law enforcement use only'. I think I have a few pre-ban mags as well. What about those? Could our brothers in less free states use them?

Thanks for your insight.

Nope.

Pre ban, yes, those could definitely help some out.

Restricted, no extra value.

Personally,  the mere sight of the ones I have accumulated piss me off.

Similar to seeing a Biden sign...

Same.  

I owned a few Colts with the RESTRICTED rollmark.  

Couldn’t live with it.

Is there any reason for them to sell for a premium? No. Do they though? Yup. I have seen hundreds sell for 12-15ea, used, over the past year. They sell for more than regular post bans, even if they shouldn’t.

I have seen various retailers who shall remain nameless selling LEO mags for a premium, mostly HK stuff but some regular AR etc. too.  I personally dont want anything marked "LEO" -  all we need is another stupid ban with grandfathering and you have a mess.  The only one I have is a beta C-Mag that the serial numbers check out as pre-ban but someone replaced the rear with a LEO marked backing and of course beta changed the retaining plate design so I cant just buy a brand new one and swap it out - it was given to me so I keep it and feeds standard ARs, .300 BLK and even my galil with an adapter flawlessly so its a range beater.

I wouldn't think there's any extra value for restricted marked magazines.  Don't get rid of them due to the markings.  My Colt 6920 & Colt 9mm came with "restricted" marked mags NIB, don't really care.

Had a member here trade me like new mags for some somewhat rough preban mags.  

I'm still trying to find the others that I know are stashed somewhere in my house.
