Only for those pistols made during the non banned period time. Meaning those that accept and hold a standard 12-15 clip mag. Any others not designed for the pistol that hold larger then 10 or 15 are illegal. A 10 round clip is not designed to fit the older 12-15 rounds. And a 15 round is not designed to fit the smaller newer pistols. Clips are made though that will fit and it is these that are not legal. Let me know if you need further assistance.
Sept. 14, 1994 was the ban date. Law Enforcement must have a letter head for approval as well. Guns registered and owned by you may buy the 12-15 round capacity mags for the older guns.
