View Full Version : Pre-Ban (1994) G19 Mag Questions...

Ok Gang:

Having lived in a 'free' state my whole life, I have never had much use or need for Glock mags that were made pre-1994.

I found these in my mag drawer a few days back, and was wondering if someone could clarify the difference in the two NFML on the left (these two are exactly the same), and the FML on the right:

I noticed the 'dimples' on the sides of the mags differ, and of course the FML/NFML difference, but I have a few questions:

Are these all pre-1994 mags?

Are the pre-1994 mags worth a premium over regular mags? (Pertaining to restricted states only)

And finally - Can I sell them to a restricted area if they are indeed pre-1994?

If so, what are the legal aspects I should be aware of?

Can either the buyer or the seller run into issues shipping these into a restricted area, or is it no big deal if they are pre-1994 mags? (Well, of course NYS is out of the question, I assume, but otherwise...)

I have no use for them any more than I would any other standard capacity mags, but given the current supply/demand situation, if I can help out a fellow GT'er 'behind the lines', all the better - I just don't want any unnecessary hassle while doing so.

Thanks in advance.

All three are NFML magazines and are all preban. They used to be worth a premium in NY, but I'm not sure anymore with the recent change in NY law. Might be worth a premium in MA or MD.

They were desireable, now not so much.

Thanks guys. What about the legalities involving shipping?

Ok to ship them just about anywhere because of their pre-ban status (Even CA)?

You can ship them to me in MA, no issues legally.

Although I live in a free state I use a Gen II 19 and prefer those exact mags. If you care to, I'd like to buy them.
