    It is not restricted, it has a long enough barrel due to its bullpup design for it to comply with the law in Canada. Techincally you could carry it down the street, as long as you don't point it at any one or threaten them. However, the chances of somebody in your neighbourhood who doesn't know anything about the laws regarding firearms wil call the police is like 1000% so....

    well i'll be a.. it isn't restricted?

    kind of makes me nostalgic for the days my buddies and i could go camping with our collections and set up combat lanes out in Kananaskis.

    i can't help but wonder though how long before it gets "noticed" by the anti gun crowed, all we need is another Lethal weapon sequel with something as stupid as "Cop Killer" rounds for it to end up on "the list"

    if you look at the last section you can see they have a catch all for any fire arm they feel should be picked on.


    Restricted Firearms

    If you possess or wish to acquire a restricted firearm, here is some information you should know about requirements under the Firearms Act.
    Definition of a Restricted Firearm

    According to the Criminal Code, a restricted firearm is:
    • A handgun that is not a[*******#0000ff] prohibited firearm[/COLOR];
    • A semi-automatic, centre-fire firearm with a barrel length less than 470 mm that is not a prohibited firearm;
    • A firearm that can fire after being reduced, by folding, telescoping or otherwise, to an overall length of less than 660 mm; and
    • Any firearm prescribed under the Criminal Code regulations [*******#0000ff]to be restricted [/COLOR](including some long guns).

    Ouch, 5 round mags only?!(as posted in the link) And here i thought it was bad in Kalifornia with 10 rounds only. My heart goes out to my brothers up north.

    One of the better looking b-pups in my opinion, even if the price tag is way out of my league.

    You cannot carry firearms around in public in Canada other than for hunting anywhere!
    Money couriers and police officers are the only civilians allowed to carry handguns anywhere in Canada.
    I think there is maybe a handful of private bodyguards in Canada who are allowed to carry and conceal, but that is only a handful and they have to get minister approval.

    Yes, handguns are restricted, but the Tavor is a rifle. Also, in Canada if you have a job that takes you out into the wilderness, you might be able to apply for the carry of a restricted weapon. For example a bush pilot and what not so it is not only armour car couriers. Police to me, when they are on duty aren't civilians.

    I am no expert in the cesspit of laws and regulations laid down by the Canadian Firearms Centre (CFC) but if you have any questions ask the people over at http://www.canadiangunnutz.com/ (CGN)

    Also the firearms dealer whose website was posted at the beginning is also a member of the CGN forum. His goes by CanAm, people interested in the Tavor can just ask him directly.

    If I had a rifle that is non-restricted right now, like the Tavor, I could go on to any Crown land, except some national parks that have their own local or provincial laws and regulation and just set up some targets and shoot the crap out of them. Doesn't have to be hunting, if I felt like it I could just unload into an embankment if I wanted to.
