Could a 2250 kit be pal legal at 500 plus Fps?

Yes, what are the limits to 2240 tinkering? With an appropriate length barrel to make it PAL rated i.e. not too short so as to avoid RPAL hassle, what sort of power, fps, accuracy, range etc can be achieved?

Guys. This has been gone over so many times. The 2240 and the 2250 are regarded under Canadian law as being pistols. Period. It doesn't matter how long the barrel or whatever other attempts to make it a rifle, a pistol will remain a pistol to the RCMP. End of story. If it has a 100" barrel and a big old wooden stock, so long as it still has a 2240/2250 tube it remains a pistol. God knows why. The logic escapes me. But that's the law here. So do what you like while bearing in mind that one of these shooting above 500fps and above 5.7joules becomes RPAL material.

Of course simply swapping for a 2260 main tube resolves the problem.
