I have a question that is related to this topic.I have a NP2 with a non functional barrel shroud as per Canadian law.If I remove this barrel shroud the length of barrel is less than 470mm,does this turn it into a prohibited weapon simply by unscrewing the shroud?I dont want to be a person of interest so I leave it on.Thoughts?


RCMP says the following:
High-powered air rifles are generally classified as non-restricted firearms. However, the classification depends on the exact design of the air gun. Air rifles manufactured to resemble an assault rifle could be non-restricted, restricted or prohibited depending on the exact model imitated. High-powered air rifles would also be prohibited firearms if fully automatic or if they have a sawed-off barrel. They could also be restricted firearms if they have a folding stock that reduces the overall length to less than 660mm.

So I think that since it not sawed-off and overall length in not less than 660mm it will be still non-restricted firearm. As far as I know, barrel length restriction applies to semi-auto centrefire firearms only. Pump shotguns and .22LR with barrels less that 18.5" are still non-restricted.

Exactly - HW97's actually have something around a 9" bl which is 228.6mm according to my phone app. They are non-restriced in P.A.L. models.

This makes me feel better.The overall length is 1040 mm with shroud removed and 1180mm with the shroud on.By no means is this a small gun.Thanks for the replies.
