One of the changes implemented immediately after the new federal law was enacted was a high-capacity magazine ban. Essentially, a restriction on the creation and circulation of new magazines that contained more than 10 rounds for American civilians went into effect. As a result, many companies began to add new markings on their magazines to make distinctions on which people, or what organizations, were supposed to be allowed to access them. HK was one of these companies and their approach to these new federal restrictions can be seen today with the “Restricted Law Enforcement / Government Use Only 10-94” marking on many of their magazines.

One of the top reasons we love collecting HK firearms so much is the uniquely Teutonic attention to detail that HK inserts into virtually all aspects of their products. Their special attention to detail is exemplified through the diverse array of markings that they add to their parts to denote things such as the parts' unique traits or the date and location of their manufacture.
Unfortunately, HK doesn’t provide the public with a decoder ring for clarifying the meanings behind all of their markings, so we’re now beginning an ongoing series on the GSC blog titled “Name That Marking” to help you identify the history of the parts on your favorite guns (or your future favorite guns).
We will launch this series by exploring HK’s “178” barrels...
