Can anyone use 6-7 pre-ban floor plates?

I think it is the mag body that is date stamped , or lack thereof, that makes it a pre-ban. The floor plate doesn't come into account.

I could be and have been wrong before.


What do the plates have on them?


I am looking for some spares, and would be intersted!

I will pay you of course.


Thanks.

Most mags are marked on the side with a date code. Something like 05 05 for month and year.
However, CProducts does not mark their mag bodies ( ) and they make top quality mags.

I sold some take-off floor plates to a guy in CA. He really wanted some, and I was just going to throw them out myself. I have never seen any date stamps on the floorplates.

Somehow in one of my AR purchases I acquired a D&H mag stamped 10/04 on one side and "Restricted military gov't / law enforcement export use only" on the other side. Bottom is also stamped "Restricted law enforcement government use only" In New York State this makes me a hardened crimminal. Of course if someone breaks into my house I will deputize myself and enforce the law.


BTW nice mag. Works great and I just installed a Magpul follower in it becasue I had a lonely unused one laying around.

Right on! It's good to see shooters that don't piss their pants and roll over for idiotic legislation.

Along this same topic, what is stopping someone from making floorplates that are stamped with a date prior to 1994? It wouldn't be against the law to manufacture, sell, purchase, ship or possess them. The only illegality is when the posessor places them on a post-ban mag in a post-ban state.

Replacement mag bodies are allowed. Therefore, preban floorplates are certainly useful to someone in a ban state.

What would be the advantage? I never saw a date-code on a floorplate -- so all that would do is identify these floorplates as newly manufactured since no one date-coded floorplates before 1994.

deception

The way to deception, hypothetically, would be to make floorplates that looked like pre-1994 ones. That means, no new markings.
