When the ban was placed, there was a long grace period. During that time, production and importation was stepped up 500%-1000%, because they had years before the ban took effect. There are those who think the supply is limited, well maybe so. If everyone buys thousands at a time. Also bodies were made without internals, these too classify as preban. Importing from Canada.....uh-no-no-no, but it goes on and the prices are better. Since most of the magazines in Canada are marked "Export Only" and none can be imported here (so some say) I find it funny that new-so called "assualt rifles" are still being imported with high capacity magazines. Must be who ya know. Doesn`t really answer the question......does it??
