How would I know if the mags are beretta or aftermarket?
I own no Beretta's and do not remember "from my grunt days" if Beretta marked the magazines?
I can tell you that many States have a 10 round limit so even though the literature says 15... and even if your state has no such restriction... It's entirely possible the gun was sold "new" in a "10 round" state, hence the 10 rounders that came with your gun.
It's highly unlikely that a previous owner bought it new with 15 round mags, then went out and purchases 10 rounders?
Limited Cap magazines are kind of like those stupid cable locks that come with every new gun... Lot's of people get stuck with them, but no one actually goes looking to buy them.
I'm sure one of our Beretta fans will be along shortly to answer your I.D. questions.
