OH WHAT THE FUCK?!
Canadians and their wacky international gun laws...
That is a cool gun.
Now go and shoot it!
im not gonna lie that looks pretty damn cool
looks like a modern bullpup
very interesting. Wonder how it would feel shooting prone with that.
that is pretty damm sweet
I like it! We can't get those in the US, right?
why not? hope i'm not opening up a can of worms by asking
It has no 'sporting purpose' so it can't be imported.
No can of worms, bro.
Two questions : how much did you pay? I could look online, but I'm wondering what you paid out the door. Also, what are the purchasing rules in Ontario? I doubt I could drive up there and buy a gun, obviously - but what do you need in order to purchase a firearm there? Does it differ by province?
Weren't there rumours of Taurus buying the US rights for the Tavor?
Not exactly a big fan of Taurus, but if they're the only option for a Tavor here...
I honestly don't know.
I always wanted to shoot one of those

That's one wicked boomstick!
The triggers on those things as well as every bullpup I've ever fingered are really wierd. Lots of extra movement and slop and the way the trigger stacks up and resets is odd. Like the break point changes the more you try to prep the trigger.
OIC, i get it. but that doesn't quite make sense to me. what makes, say, an AR have a sporting purpose but not that?
ARs are made here in the US. Importation laws prohibit firearms with no 'sporting purpose' from being brought into the country. Doesn't make a lot of sense but that's how it is.
What's something like that set you back?
and the AK's have a lot of sporting purpose
They are imported in the configuration like your Saiga. If they could, they'd come with a pistol grip and buttstock from the factory to your home...but that would be an assault weapon, not a sporting firearm
