Have fun with that.....What are the rules for determining if a 9mm 31 round Scherer magazine is pre-ban or not? Do same rules apply as the glock factory mags, i.e. if it has a U-notch it is pre-ban? Thanks for all future responses!
No.Any reason not to put a 15 round mag in your carry gun in MA?
In MA? They'll probably try to hang you from the rafters for killing some poor defenseless rapist anyways.In particular, I'm wondering about additional ramifications if I ever am forced to defend myself.
This. I mean come on. Glock mags are Glock mags. In the winter I carry a Gen4 19 with 15+1 in a new mag.No.

If you know it's pre-ban for a fact, carry it.
I realize this us an old post but since it’s still relevant, I would like to address all three issues brought up here.This. I mean come on. Glock mags are Glock mags. In the winter I carry a Gen4 19 with 15+1 in a new mag.
The question is, when the shooting starts , do you want to be armed or legal ?

There is a huge difference between folklore, or "everyone on the internet knows" and being able to prove post-ban status beyond a reasonable doubt in court.It's bad enough trying to parse out the real story on Glock factory mags!!!
Not entirely true.It’s really easy to identify pre ban glock mags. It’s all about the placement of the caliber stamp. If it’s low(close to the witness holes) then it’s pre ban. If it’s high(close to the top of the mag) it’s post ban. They raised the caliber stamp for the 1994 federal ban so they could write the words restricted for LE/government use only between the caliber stamp and the witness holes. After the ban they never lowered the caliber stamp.
Or "my friend so and so is a cop and a Glock armorer and claims that he knows" despite the fact that the factory has never printed anything about this issue officially....There is a huge difference between folklore, or "everyone on the internet knows" and being able to prove post-ban status beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
Not sure if serious. You might as well just not carry at all, if you're legitimately more afraid of jail than dying.Personally I’d rather be dead than spend a year in prison never mind 5, 10 or 20. But that’s just me.
Not sure what you mean by this. But I'll take a stab.... because malum prohibitum laws are retarded, and even aside from that, if the state wants to prosecute someone for having a piece of plastic or metal that was born on the wrong date, it has the burden of proof in doing so. The way the law is written, even in MA, doesn't magically alter due process because of mass gnomish mysticism or some DA or prosecutor has their sensibilities offended.Besides how can we pro 2nd Amendment people hang our hats on the letter of the law with one hand and then break the law with the other?
RS, using your logic they shouldn't carry more than the 1 mag in the gun either as the ADA will point out that extra mags prove the person wanted to kill people.
Unless you are carrying original (unmarked) 9mm U-channel Glock mag, there is no way to get "certification" from Glock about the pre-ban status of any Glock mag! I know that from personally talking with their US General Counsel. So neither the prosecution or defense will get any help from Glock. So, given your logic, one should never carry a Glock unless it was with (only) ONE 10-rd mag in the gun.
My certified pre-owned pre-bans came with a 10 year, 100,000 round warranty from the dealer.What is a certified preban? Sounds like certified organic bs
