But I don't understand the "Legal Classification" section. There's one at the top, and there there's another under "Calibre, Shots and Barrel Length".

Usually the "Summary" section has it as "Non-Restricted", but underneath the other section it mentions "Prohibited".

So, what exactly is it?

Ha! Good question. But I think you'll find the true classification through the description under "Model." This rifle has an integrated suppressor in its shroud. That would make it prohibited unless modified by the manufacturer prior to import.

The Daystate Pulsar in 177 and 22 are prohibited

Image

cc 84(1) prohibited device paragraph
(a) any component or part of a weapon, or any accessory for use with a weapon, that is prescribed to be a prohibited device

My guess would be it uses the same barrel action as other Daystate air rifle, therefore the the "stock" is viewed as a modification to make it bullpup, and bullpup conversion stock are illegal

Looks to me it was presented as a non-restricted firearm and that the finding was "prohibited" in both calibres - likely due to design.

If you look through the FRT, there are plenty that are classified as 'Prohibited' on the top portion. Does that mean it was submitted as 'Prohibited' as per your logic?


I am aware (in the Pulsar case) about the shroud/silencer. It was just an example that I was confused about.


Does anyone actually know?

Ahh I see what you mean and erased my reply, lol. That is a bit strange. I wonder if it's possible there was a non restricted classification at one time and then they removed it?
Interesting.

Search cc 84(1) para "a"
Huge list.

Most likely due to the shorter barrel and suppressive thingys inside it.

I was going to bring in Daystate Air Ranger, from the USA but they say no, cause of the thingys in the shroud. I asked if it was sent over without the shroud and thingys, no problem, as you know.

Buy one and find out, or call them and ask.

You have the FRT.
