    The republic of canuckistan was recently blessed with the arrival of H&K's P2000 line of pistols, with slightly elongated barrels to comply with our super efficient laws.

    I can't wait to receive it. Will update with pics... in the meantime, here are samples so you can see what the canuckian versions look like:

    Man you guys have some crap laws, so let me get this straight, your weapon has to have a barrel longer than 4 inches or it's prohibited?


    PROHIBITED FIREARMS, DEVICES, AND WEAPONS
    • Prohibited firearms, devices, and weapons are:
      • full-automatic firearms
      • sawed-off rifles or shotguns with barrel length less than 457mm (18 inches); this does not apply to firearms manufactured with short barrels
      • sawed-off rifles or shotguns with overall length less than 660mm (26 inches); this does not apply to firearms manufactured with short stocks or short barrels
      • handguns with a barrel less than 105mm (4.14 inches), except certain specifically listed competition handguns which are restricted
      • handguns in caliber .25 or .32, except certain specifically listed competition handguns which are restricted
      • silencers
      • large capacity magazines for a semi-automatic center-fire firearm. What constitutes "large capacity" varies; as a general rule, the maximum capacity is 5 rounds for long guns, 10 rounds for handguns "commonly found in Canada", and 5 rounds for handguns "not commonly found in Canada." Magazines for rimfire cartridges, the 8-round clips used in the M1 Garand, and 10 round Lee Enfield rifle magazines are exempted by name from this prohibition.
      • any of a long list of firearms specifically listed as prohibited. With few exceptions, if it has a remotely military appearance, it is prohibited.
      • replicas of firearms
      • any type of Taser or other firearm that discharges a dart or other object carrying an electrical current.
      • tear gas, Mace or other gas, or any liquid spray, power or other substance that is capable of injuring, immobilizing or otherwise incapacitating any person
      • any type of stun gun or other electrical charge device of length less than 480mm
      • a large additional class of prohibited weapons, such as nunchakus, switchblades, brass knuckles, etc. which are not discussed here. Read the list here if you care.

    Believe me, that's the plan. I'm getting in touch with a few places to check whether or not they thread H&K barrels: I heard they're more difficult to work with than others. One thing's for sure, it's not staying this way...

    No SBR, but it looks like they have SBS laws:

    # sawed-off rifles or shotguns with barrel length less than 457mm (18 inches); this does not apply to firearms manufactured with short barrels
    # sawed-off rifles or shotguns with overall length less than 660mm (26 inches); this does not apply to firearms manufactured with short stocks or short barrels

    but only if they aren't made that way :rofl:

    The US Border patrol seems to like them, when they cut over from the 96 the qualification scores went through the roof.

    Speaking of rifle mag limits: we recently had an AR pistol model makes it way here. Since it's a "pistol", the magazine can have 10 rounds. Also, if the mag fits a regular AR, it's fair game... so we have a little loophole allowing us to have 10 rounds in our ARs. You can laugh, but that's fuckin' crazy for us :big grin:
