I believe that there is only one Bullpup that is legal in Canada. And no, unfortunately the 10/22 is not it. I cannot remember which one is. Remember anything cool or sweet is not allowed in Canada. You may want to further your reserch as I have been wrong once before.lol. Good luck RH

AFAIK, it is not a case of legal, but a case of Restricted vs. Non Restricted.

Call the CFC @ 1-800-731-4000 and check the classification of the firearm you are wondering acout.

Hmmm, figures.

Also during my safety course the instructor mentioned something about semi-auto rimfires not having a 5 shot limit. Any truth to this?

If you check the regs (don't take the forum to be gospel, doublecheck always) it says there's a difference in magazine size allowed for rimfires and centerfire cartridges. A .22 rimfire isn't restricted to 5 shots.

I bought a .22 lr in the spring and it came with a 10 clip. a friend of mine has a 30 clip for his remington. I was told that if I could make a clip that could hold 1000 for the .22 then go for it. This came from a F&W officer. no limit on the rim fires...yet

I have half a dozen 25 round mags for my .22 and they are completely legal.

Not to be confused with Buhl Bull Pup or AGM-12 Bullpup.

The Steyr AUG is one of the most successful bullpup riflesBullpup is a firearm configuration in which the action and magazine are located behind the trigger. This increases the barrel length relative to the overall weapon length, permitting shorter weapons for the same barrel length, saving weight and increasing maneuverability. It alternatively allows for longer barrels on weapons of the same length, which can increase muzzle velocity. Higher muzzle velocities result in flatter trajectories, a longer effective range, and, in some cases, increased lethality.

Absolutly wrong. Aftermarket/add-on bull pups are prohib in Canada. A few factory made bullpup rifles are legal such as the Tavor and Norinco 97 and are both available in non-restricted versions.
