What is a "pre-ban" magazine?
I was digging around in my garage today and came across something I had completely forgotten I possessed. It was a couple of surplus mag pouches, and one of them still had a pair of 30 rnd magazines in it, metal.
The floor plates are stamped ADVENTURE LINE MFG. CO.
PARSONS. KS. U.S.A., and as far as I can tell they're unused. From what I can gather these were produced under contract for the US Army and Air Force between about 67-71.
Ok...so what? I admit that until recently I had no real knowledge of the Clinton era ban except in the most vague way, and don't have a clear understanding of how it affects people in say, California. I've gathered that high-cap mags are already a no-no there, but how does pre-ban work into that equation?
