    Can someone please be kind enough to give me a link to some concerning the details of the sale of restricted hicap magazines. I am looking for a link to some legal info.

    Thanks in advance

    Are you asking about the AWB? I don't have a link but basically anything holding over 10 rounds manufactured after 1994 has to have "Law Enforcement Only" stamped on it and be sold to you guessed it, law enforcement only. As for your state laws I don't know, but some states prohibit the importation of standard capacity mags.

    That is sort of what I am looking for, but I am looking for detailed information about how they are sold, to whom, when, and how LEO can dispose of LEO only items, mainly magazines.

    Thanks for the reply

    LEO's are free to buy the magazines, but upon quitting or retirement they are supposed to either sell them to other LEO's or give them to their dept.

    For more info, I'd suggest checking the BATFE's website. They'll have all the pertinent code and details there.

    How strictly is that inforced? because last October when i bought my Ruger P89 it came with 2 pre-ban, 15 round clips. And i just found an auction on e-bay where a guy is selling 6 of these at $20 each. I know e-bay is the exception to everything. but i bought my gun from a licensed dealer.

    From the thread title, I thought this was going to be about selling Playboy at the Base PX.

    Any Hi-Cap magazine without the obligatory "For LE or Armed Forces" stamp on it is fair game (provided you aren't in CA) as they would be "Pre-Ban" magazines and priced accordingly. I took all of the guns out of the safe and put the magazines in there. :D

    Unless you wear a badge you earned and have the appropriate payroll number or work for Uncle Sam dressed in green, the potential time spent in the Gray-Bar hotel by buying and owning and getting caught with a post ban magazine isn't worth the pain involved.

    www.atf.treas.gov is the place to begin your search...

    Adios

    rkb3119,

    Go here: www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/faq2.htm#o3

    The key is the date of manufacture of the magazine. Standard capacity magazines are not, per se , restricted, as long as they were manufactured prior to Sept 14, 1994. If you so desire, you can possess as many as you can afford to purchase.

    :( ... thought this was about Playboy and Hustler for a moment! :rolleyes:


    High capacity mags are easy to get, if you're in an area which allows them. Make sure you are aware of the laws before you take them to the range!
