What's this silliness?

I bought some Magnum Research mags which are supposed to work in the Walther PPQ.

They're shipped from the Kahr factory in Worcester, MA.

I'm guessing this ridiculous bright orange warning sticker is a Massachusetts thing? Now I'm going to have to use Goo-Gone on my mags.

Sounds like someone's trying to avoid a lawsuit.

Or they already got sued and this is one of the provisions of the settlement.

Took my PPQ to the range today but forgot to bring ammo along for it.

So I have yet to fire mine.

Nope, its not a Massachusetts thing...its a Kahr Arms / Magnum Research thing...

When I bought my Deagle 1911 (yes, Magnum Research did produce a Desert Eagle 1911G 5", a full MilSpec 1911) I bought it from a dealer in Texas through GunBroker. It was new in box, direct from the factory, not used nor pre-owned. Both mags had almost the same warning sticker, but mine were a hideous neon orange. While my version was still built by BUL in Israel, the final packaging was done by Kahr who had, by that time, bought out Magnum research. It is Kahr that is behind putting these stickers on the mags.

Stupid. But there is a Silver Lining. It does force you to Strip your Mags and make sure they're cleaned and ready to go. Got a couple of 30 Carbine Mags that ended up with Burrs on the Follower and they'd Jam after about 3 shots. It's embarrassing to have to leave the Range 5 minutes after you got there.

Baby Eagle mags work in PPQs? And vice versa, I assume? Are we talking the full-size BE mags, or the compact ones? I might have to snag myself another Walther, it seems...

I just wish I could get full caps that easily.
