    When a magazine or rifle is stamped LEO/Military Use Only what does that mean in the real world?

    There are no restrictions in OR/WA on magazine capactiy so is it illegal to own something stamped LEO only? Who would/can enforce this?

    That's a good question. I myself would like an answer as my old eotech had the same thing written on it. I personally think it's a marketing gimmick or maybe applies in California but any input would be appreciated!

    As I understand it, those stamps were used when the Clinton era "assault weapons" ban was in place. The stamp means nothing since the ban expired.

    "High capacity" magazines manufactured during the Brady Ban years had to be marked for military/LEO use by law, and could not be sold to civilians. Since the Brady Ban has gone away (thank goodness), the stamp no longer has any legal significance or consequence in states without a hi-cap ban.

    It means nothings since the sunset of the assault weapon ban.

    Trismn, give me a break,, it means someone has a mag made during the Clinton assult ban, or that someone has a mag that the factory had time to stamp on, as they thought they would be sold during the ban, or just a mag that someone wanted to stamp, or..
