    Default Preban USP Compact .40

    Hey There,

    I am curious if anyone can tell me when the first USP compact .40's became available. I was told 1996, then someone said it was early 1994. What I'm trying to figure out is wheather or not a preban 12 round magazine exists.


    Thanks,

    In 1996 the first of the Compact series of USP pistols entered production, and next year it was officially approved for German police use as the 9mm P10.

    this information is from

    There are HK 12 round mags that are unlabeled and not dated...the last ones I ordered came as such. You could go with those. Ones produced during the "ban" are stamped "law enforcement only"...I have some of those as well.

    Why not just order some 12 rounders and see what they look like? Or would the Peoples Republik of Massachusetts have issue with that?

    That works if the weapon was being manufactured before the 1994 AWB. In my state the politicians adopted that failure of a ban and all the same rules apply.

    I looked on usacarry.com and it said there is no mag capacity restriction for a class A concealed permit holder...is that incorrect?

    http://www.usacarry.com/massachusett...formation.html

    Concealed Permit:
    May Issue to Residents and Non-Residents.

    A Class A license authorizes carrying of handguns, including large capacity handguns, for all lawful purposes, subject to such restrictions relative to the possession, use or carrying of handguns as the licensing authority deems proper, and carrying of rifles and shotguns, including large capacity rifles and shotguns, for all lawful purposes, subject to restrictions imposed by the licensing authority. A class A license holder may carry a loaded handgun in a vehicle, if it is under his direct control. However, this does not apply to large capacity rifles or shotguns. Such firearms must be carried unloaded, in the locked trunk or in a locked case or other secure container.

    The class A permit doesn't mean much in this state. possession of a postban magazine containing more than 10 rounds is a 10 year felony, the only exception is for law enforcement. This is usually easy to exploit as most of the manufactures don't add a date to the magazine. As I mentioned earlier, if the weapon was not in existence before September 1994, your out of luck.

    Isn't it simply amazing what the State can use to shut your life down these days? I live in a "relatively" free place, but tales like that still piss me off to no end.

    Mine aren't date-stamped, but the two 12rd mags that came with my USPc in .40 (purchased 2005) are all stamped "Law Enforcement Only" - never looked into Mass. carry laws to know if a date stamp is required to "prove" it isn't a post-ban mag.

    I do know that it's up to the prosecutor to prove that the hi cap magazines are postban. The funny thing about this law is I've yet to meet a police officer that gave a **** about the law.
