Polytech shooting, OKA crisis, and Bill Clinton assault rifle ban, had some effect on why they are prohib. Many are prohib by name. AK, FN FAL, G3, MP5, AUG.. Because they're "evil" Meaning that if you didn't have one registered before they banned it, you wouldn't be able to purchase one ( kinda a Grandfather license ) There are many in the country. Government stopped issuing special authorization to transport in 2005. Meaning they are safe queens now.

What you think will happen if you are caught with a illegal firearm ?

Like I got a GSG 16, it's like a MP5 in 22LR, but the GSG 5/552 it's based off of is prohib, because its "variant" of a MP5. No it does not have a suppressor, it's a shroud to cover the 16" barrel.

You lost out getting your prohib license. You would been grandfathered and still could shoot them till like 2005.

But there are a few bullpup firearms in Canada. FN 2000, FN P90, Keltec RDB, Type 97, Tavor, X95.

Just mainly bullpup stocks are illegal. Though there are few airguns that are bullpups. Many are sub 500 FPS, and would be illegal to boost them over 500.

Im talking about the design of a bull pup. A bull pup isnt a fire arm its a design. Im wondering why they baned the design. Not trying to start a argument i just find it funny how they baned a design or a "shape"
Just wanted that design or shape for my airgun as a stock. And i mean what would happennif you were caught with that shape lol

They feel that bullpup stocks would make a firearm more concealable. You would get a firearm probation, including airguns for at least 10 years. Alot of legal fees. Depending on how criminal they want to make you.

Leadslinger meant you would get a prohibition = as in prohibited from owning firearms along with a fine and maybe jail time.
At this "time" it is quite likely there would be 3 to 5 different charges for just that one "firearm" & stats are desired to show
how bad firearms are, thus, they would throw the entire Criminal Code at you.
The stock itself is a prohibited "DEVICE", just as a silencer is a prohibited device, as-is a 25 round magazine for a Ruger 10-22 rifle.

They didn't ban the design, the banned basically any aftermarket device that can convert a standard action firearm into a bullpup, ie the stock. The also didn't ban the shape; they banned relocating the trigger assembly in front of the action. You could make whatever shape furniture you wanted, assuming the trigger remains behind the action.

" Any rifle, shotgun or carbine stock of the type known as the “bull-pup” design, being a stock that, when combined with a firearm, reduces the overall length of the firearm such that a substantial part of the reloading action or the magazine-well is located behind the trigger of the firearm when it is held in the normal firing position."

So as mentioned you can own a increasing variety of bullpup models in Canada, as mentioned, you just can't convert an existing firearm into a bullpup. Does it make sense, not really, but the idea scared someone enough to deem it so. So in short you can own a non-restricted .50BMG GM6 Lynx with no hassles, but you put the wrong plastic stock on your 10/22 and you're going to have a rough couple of years.

How it pertains to a sub 500fps airgun I'm not sure, since they are not deemed as a firearm as per the Firearm Act, but I certainly wouldn't want to be the one to argue it.

Your Benji is over 500 fps, their for a NR firearm. You put a bullpup stock on anything. It's illegal. No matter the action.

There are very few bullpup airguns in Canada. With most being under 500 FPS, QB 57 and Roebel are examples. CSS bringing in some sub 500 FPS Kral Puncher Bullpups, but won't be bringing in any over 500. So anyone that mods them over 500 FPS, will be breaking the law.

Not sure why you are trying to argue? We told you it's illegal, you're trying to find a loop hole doing so.. Don't bring bad light to the airgun world.
