    Recently purchased these and am looking for insight. No markings what-so-ever on outside of mags, steel bodies, as they are heavy. See pictures. Are these pre-ban mags? Manufacturer? Thanks in advance.

    Well since there is no ban currently, yes they are "pre ban" mags. Unless, of course, you brought them back from the future.

    the pre-ban mags only apply to California, where they grandfathered magazines in before they banned anything over 10 rounds.

    then, like stated above, there is no ban on them in most other parts in the country. lets hope that doesnt change.

    I m not familiar with ARs as i dont have one yet. I read the unmarked mags that are around can be spotty in performance. Any truth to this ?

    The follower will usually not be anti-tilt, so there is a potential for it to tilt when it passes along the curved portion of the magazine. This does not happen very often and can be mediated by purchasing anti-tilt followers such as those from magpul.

    State Magazine Capacity Restrictions http://www.promagindustries.com/Articles.asp?ID=132 New York State has a 10 round limit. I was told the pre-ban 20/30 are allowed there. Sold these old ones i was using in my m16a1 to a guy in NY. They worked well. Newer will have numbers/dates or other marking on the sides, is what he said. 5AR223mags.jpg AR223Mags5.jpg

    I'm a NY resident. Yes, we have a 10-round limit, but pre-'94 are grandfathered without restriction. They can be bought, sold transferred, etc. The Governor was just on TV talking about ending that.

    can they really enforce that? you go across the state line, buy some 30 rd mags, then go back to NY. to my knowledge, they aren't stamped with a date.

    Brownells AR mags are stamped with month and date.

    Yes, because they are made post 1994 ban. Others like C Products, etc. don't have dates, but are marked "C Products" which didn't exist pre-1994 so they are clearly post ban as well.

    It would take a Sears & Robuck size I.D. catalog to sort them all out at this late date.

    I have no idea how they could enforce it unless they just say any mag floor-plate without a post-2012 date is outlawed.

    Then they got to sort out the mag bodys the floor-plates all fit on, and none of them were ever marked in the first place.

    BTW: It is unfortunate bayfritz the OP, took down his photo's before responding again.

    Now, we are all only guessing about what kind of magazines the Red-X's were!!

    Bad Form to do that on a fourum bayfritz!!!

    1994 AWB and the subsequent state laws that emulated it.

    That is what is being discussed for most of the thread.

    Ok, I didn't see he was in a restricted state, I'll try to restrain my snark.
