    I used to have one identical to that and it was post ban. Just curiously why does it matter if it pre or post?

    Technically because it's LE/Export restricted, it's a ban era '94-'04, but since there is no ban currently in effect it's irrelevant and only has value to someone that wants the tyrannical writing on the side.

    I have a bunch of LE Only stamped mags that hit the market after the Klintoon ban sunsetted. They are valuable to me as functional mags and the writing only serves as a reminder of Never Again.
    Now what ?

    Well Rick, the way things are going, at this moment it may be pre-ban.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

    A lot of folks (NRA Highpower shooters) think of pre-ban as having a flash suppressor/bayonet lug and a post-ban as having a bare barrel.

    For people that live in certain states, only pre-94 guns are pre-ban that would be legal to own. The people that live there would have to find/pay for a pre-ban if they wanted such a rifle. A post-ban rifle would not be legal.

    It's a strange world.
