    pre ban AR Mags

    I live in NY. I will be here for another 14 years when I can retire from the fire dept. But who's counting. I need some pre ban AR Mags due to NYS and the stupid laws. Does anyone know a web site with pre-ban mags that will ship to NY? I need Pre 1994 mags. Thank you for any help you can give.

    You might have to take a little drive to a neighboring state for those.

    What exactly do you mean by "pre-ban" mags? There was no special marking on high-capacity magazines prior to the AWB. During the ban, high-caps were marked "military and law enforcement only". Since the ban expired, the magazines are back to no special markings. You'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between a 1990 mag and a 2010 mag if both were new.

    Is there some other feature you're referring to? Or is the issue one of delivery to a NY State address? If it's the latter, then just drive over to CT or PA and get what you need.

    I feel your pain, a rural gun shop I know has a bunch of preban Colt marked magazines. He is asking a pretty penny for them, but might be up your alley.

    If the internals are bad, buy the body and get a mag rebuild kit from 44mag.com.

    :Pop corn: What are pre-ban mags?

    What's wrong with the 40 rounders you can buy now?
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    Some states laws echoed the federal ban on certain weapons and did not sunset like the federal ban. NY is one of these states, and require only preban hicap mags or 10 rd mags. Here is the current NY firearms laws.

    In NYS you cannot possess a hi-cap magazine that was manufactured after September 1994. So this guy is looking to get some pre-ban mags, since the AWB in NY never expired. I know that Century Arms sells pre-ban stuff specifically for NYS, but they mainly deal in AK stuff.

    Some pop up in the for sale section of the site in my signature. Also the ar15.com for sale section and gunbroker have them occasionally.

    Watch out for price gougers though. You can get the best deals if you find old mags that are not labeled as "preban" in the description.
