1: I am planning to mod my Crosman 1377. If i add a 14" barrel (with stock internals),
would it still be below 500fps? Has anyone tested this? I need to keep it legal.

2: Do i need a PAL or outdoors card to target shoot on crown land in Ontario?

Thanks in advance

My experiments have illustrated to me, that 14" in either common caliber(.177 & .22) will almost certainly be sub PAL(<500fps) as long as any/all factory applied restrictions
are in place and unmolested. Any other mods would require access to a Chrony to ensure compliance.

For #2, I can't confirm, but if ON is at all similar to MB; no PAL or other certification required for target shooting on Crown Land.

Good Luck!

In my experience, a longer barrel also comes with a steel breech, and other "minor" tweaks. I expect that vAgRaNt's experiences are more in-depth than mine. All I can say as an extension of his advice is if you are going to mod guns, invest in a chrony and make sure assumptions or "normal" expectations are correct in your particular circumstance.

Another word of caution from some experience: Do not assume that a piece of land marked off as "crown land" on a provincial map is, in fact, unencumbered (as in no one is leasing it, or no land-specific ordinances have been attached to it, etc.) Every shore perimeter of every body of water in the country, for example, is crown land; that doesn't mean you can stand on a shoreline and shoot. Check with local authorities as to its "crown land" status and your privileges as a citizen on this land.
