Before you say I am picking on you, I would say the same to anyone who posted this- and I have in the past. The whole LE/Military thing is ridiculous and I have yet to hear of a credible case of anyone that has been prosecuted or arrested based on this assertion.
I have multiple magazines that say the same thing and I am sure that I have some ammunition that is also marked like this on the packing.
If some officer wants to hook me up for a perceived violation of a law (that he will also have to cite) then by all means do so. After I win my lawsuit for false arrest I will buy even more "restricted" weapons and load them throughout my vehicle and drive up and down the road.
I could give a **** if it is roll marked with Donald Duck or Goofy as long as it does what it is supposed to.

Not necessarily. I have a Colt LE6920 made by Colt Manufacturing and a Colt Match Target 6700 made by Colt Defense.

Let us also be honest and state the fact that many in law enforcement are not overly familiar with weapons laws or what to gun/mag is legal or not.

So if you have the option to get a gun or mag without "LE ONLY" always go the "without" route.
I will try and get it up tomorrow (is on my other computer).

Remember that ALL parts come from the same source. So Colt commercial doesn't have parts made just for them (which are not to spec). They use the same parts that Colt Defense does.
Not for long! There are multiple CA Legal Colt AR's coming in the near future.
