    Ok I see people asking for pre ban mag why. Not just go and buy a new mag I don't know why you guys want old high cap mags. Thanks

    Because in certain states they have banned magazines over 10 rnds unless it was manufactured before the ban was put in place. So if you buy a pre ban you can legally have a magazine that holds more than 10 rnds.

    I live in California and the law is in place here. I think New York but not sure what other states.

    For the record.

    GLOCK never produced a HiCap magazine. They are Standard Capacity. The Clinton Ban came out and required manufactures to no longer produce any magazines that held more than 10 rounds. The ban/law was in place for ten years.

    No I am not the grammar police, just like to see terms used that apply a little more correctly to the product.

    Yep, I prefer to call the low cap mags neutered. One of the many reasons I am moving to a free state in a couple years

    The 33 round was made for the G-18. Yea, I suppose that could be considered Hi Cap:D
    Don't know anything about a 22 round mag for the 40 cal models tho. Oh, unless you are refering to the aftermarket conversion kit.:confused:
