UN Marking Legislation is not good for us for sure, worst thing is this is not mandatory to report private small arms to the UN. Can we get away with stamping our own crafted stuff with a Letter punch set or what?

Firearms for International sales only, must be marked, is my 'take'.

BTW - it is not a law unless it is made into a law and passed by the Canadian Government, so I suppose you could say, it's more of a "GUIDELINE", kinda like the Pirate's Code.

Best Wishes

And for new builds, after June 1, 2017?.... I would assume as soon as you machine a functional receiver, you have to stamp it CA17.... I wonder what else you need to do?.... Serial Number? (always # 1, since they could be different "Models", unless you made more than one?).... Manufacturer's Name? (initials, full legal name, pseudonym, nickname, what's the deal there?).... When I was registering project long-guns, there was no such requirement, if there was no Model # and Serial # on the tube, they issued a sticker.... not done any more.... I'm thinking "Bob 1 CA17" should be good enough, in the future.... if there is no Make and Ser.No. on the "receiver".... whatever that is....

and don't tell me it's the part that holds the barrel, because the CFC use the main tube in the case of most Crosman guns, because that is where Crosman choose to put their info....


On a sten, the RCMP made the mag housing the "receiver" as it had the maker and s/n on it. As a result, you can buy a sten receiver, but not a mag well. :roll:
