okay so alot of canadians undoubtedly are thinking these are illegal - they are not illegal and companies such as tapco have distributors in canada which required alot of paperwork and product approval -namely the High capacity ( blocked to 5 rounds) magazines . these mags are awesome ,extremely reliable for a hunter , the 20 round looks great on the sks and makes it look balanced - TAPCO PLEASE READ - i wish they would make a 5/10 round mag as well- why? lets face it ,as a gun owner in canada we have to tread alot lighter than our american brothers . I'm pretty certain that if you were spotted by a freak while carrying your rifle out to your truck the 5/20 round mag (empty) but installed - the cops would be hearing about it and the description they get will be "it looked like an ak47 - to the movie buff or "it looked like a machine gun that terrorists use " from the uneducated freak- thats enough right there for an uneducated rcmp to come knocking on your door with back up looking for the "machine gun" and believe it - your only rights are the option to remain silent and comply with the search -legallity of the search is of unimportance to police at this point - they will check the rifle call in the reg number and verify that you infact havent broken a single law . so moral of the story is - hide the hi capacity magazines until you get to the range.
are amercan brothers are laughing i can hear it so i will explain it his way also ......
no guns sold for hunting in canada have large cap mags . not even blocked to 5 hicap mags since 1992 even before that the only hicap mags were on restricted rifles and handguns but the law forced owners of hicap rifle mags to block them to five making say a 30 round mag legal since it cant hold more than 5 rounds ( there are also requirements on how the blocker is considered permanent including glueing) point is you cant easily convert back to full cap . and the owness is on the gun owner to ensure compliance - there can be mandatory jail time if it looks like the owner completely disregarded the requirement -so is it worth it to lose your job ,wife ,home, just to be a rebel - no instead write letters and lobby to have rifle mag capacities at least doubled to 10 rounds and 20 rounds ( full box of ammo) at a licenced gun range - so to our american brothers who are still laughing ...canadians just arent used to seing those evil hicap magazines that reighn terror all over the world even though they are being used in unregistered auto's and firing at 1000rpm . also canadians are not familiar with obsolete firearms used by our own military such as the FN , americans are more familiar with there military history than canadians are so anything that looks sporty is evil - lol
alright so if that bored you - im going to make another post with a few tips about some of the mods that have previously been and are being done and point out some things that might pertain to canadian owners upgrading to a tapco stock and mags on a russian model sks and some misinformation about tapco 5/20rd mag fitting issues . i will call it canadian tapco mods -lol
