At this price point its tempting for a 9mm carbine. I figure flak on these are coming from someone comparing these to firearms x2-3 the price point or possible shoddy QA so could be a gamble.

Only thing that I'm not liking is the chintzy looking synthetic stock and the proprietary mags. If I were in the market that might make me opt for the M1-9 carbine instead for an extra $200ish.

And I think you mean “assault style rifle” because we do not have assault rifles in Canada.

There is no such law. It’s a rim fire magazine used only for rifles. You are misinformed and spreading false information. That magazine is legal and may be used in its full capacity, and it wouldn’t matter if it held 100 rounds.

Any recommendations for a noob with regards to guns to start off with for target shooting? As well as good sources to purchase in Canada?

Already have a 10/22 Ruger and was interested in a handgun (9mm or 22) as well as a shotgun

I don’t think that you can swap the frame to the collapsible stock version. If you must have that version, wait for it to come back in stock. I have one and is sweet.

No pistol made that uses this mag so you are allowed 25rds. Spring in it to prevent you from preventing... Get your facts straight before you post stuff you don't know anything about.

Thank you for you very kind and polite replies :rolleyes:

I actually didn't know about this loophole. All my rifles have like 3-rd mags and I've always thought it was 5 rd max for rifles, which is more than enough.

My handguns are all restricted at 10-rds even if they have 18 or 19-rd mags... again as per the law.

So, now that I think about it, for rimfire it makes sense that they failed to regulate as the danger for mass shooting is almost inexistant anyway, but I just never knew about this and I don't really see the need for 25-rd mags. But, hey have fun with it :)
I can't afford to buy cheap stuff. Therefore, I'm thirsty for deals on durable goods.

Honest recommendation? Go to site with more open minded people. There’s some nice folks on here that may help you, but there are other places that will welcome you with open arms.

It’s not a loophole, it’s the law.

These are known to be ugly as sin, but very reliable despite the low price.

Can you even do anything with it even when it's grandfathered though?

I have a Not restricted AR10, that's now prohib.

If it's grandfathered can I still use it in the bush?

Nope. :(

Never dealt with them before lockdown but except the delayed shipping I didn't have any issues with them (2 weeks for order to ship out). They were nice enough to bundle a second order to avoid shipping charges after I contacted them.

Just don't be be in a rush if you place an order with them.

I paraphrased my query with my lack of understanding with regards to this issue. You have an opportunity to offer insight and knowledge but you’re already getting defensive using that one phrase as rebuttal. I’ve no skin in this game since I am neither pro or against legal ownership of guns.
My apologies if my post came across as harsh, I was merely pointing out this is a Restricted firearm hence you can't just bring it anywhere that "lugging around" implied.

Ya... carrying case/bags are very normal, it's a way to protect the investment just like golfers put their clubs in golf bags. when you carry multiple firearms to your destination you want to make sure they don't get scratched or bumping eachother during the ride.

French dude didn't answer, other 2 are obscene prices. I have a post on CGN as well, I will find one eventually.

It's sad times when the only semi-auto rifle deals we can talk about, are .22 plinkers.
