I have the MB halon extinguishner in my Euro 500SE .I am on the local volenteer fire dept here and asked the cheif about it. he said the law now reads to the effect that no new halon devices can be manufactured in the U.S. or imported or refilled at least by a private person ,but that any made before the law can be used or sold.You can sometimes find them on ebay.They are very effective on auto engine fires and were widely used in aircraft,but can be somewhat dangerous to use by anyone but a professional fire fighter and there are claims being made that halon damages the ozone layer ...........
