Does anyone have the real story why USGI mags say something like "Restricted military/Gov't/Law Enforcement/Export Use Only"

I can guess why its there but don't know for sure (i.e. 94-04 AWB?) anyone have the real answer? Does it result in any substantial limitations on these products or is it a meaningless statement?

Over 10rd mags made after 9/13/94 couldn't be sold to the peasants and had to be marked in some way. All (Federal) limitations ceased to exist on 9/14/04

Everyone should own one, and a 10rd abortion, as a reminder of what "reasonable" gun control looks like.

So if the peasants have them now it's because once the ban was lifted it was ok for them to be sold?

yea, not a question for myself. Just a theroetical question. I see them talked about frequently and I wondered how it applies to those in free states.

That means it was OK for them to be sold (barring any state or local retardation)

You can use them in a featureless rifle but if it has a bullet button it has to be pinned. Most everyone i know with them in cali just stores them away for a rainy day.

MA (my residence) and a few other states can only use pre 9/1994 mags, so any of the "For LE/Mil only" mags are a big no no. Most mags made before the 94 AWB had no marking, although a couple manufacturers internally date stamped them and I think only Center (or was it Okay?) externally dated them... Most guys in MA use a Parsons/Adventure line/Sanchez, which were made from the late 1970s-early 1990s. These mags are undated but these particular manufacturers had dropped the USGI contract for mags by the AWB so they are actually pre-94. Although an actual date stamp is always easier to prove that it is a legitimately preban mag in the People's Republic of Massachusetts and other similar states.
