ALL CANADIAN LAWS ARE COMPLIED WITH, no matter how stupid they may be.
Live firearms and live ammunition require the appropriate Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL). Restricted firearms would require the relevant PAL with RESTRICTED endorsement. The PAL acts as an automatic background check and the police check ALL Canadian legal firearms owners EVERY DAY. Firearms owners must first pass R. C. M. Police tests for safe handling and there are strict rules to follow regarding storage, display, transportation and use.
This page covers firearms, firearms parts, direct accessories such as slings, holsters, carrying pouches, ammunition carriers, cleaning kit, ammunition (live or inert), For other webbing such as belts, canteens, helmets etc. please see my FOR SALE – Equipment page.
This is a hobby, and being retired and on a pension, I have to sell off some items so that I may buy other items that interest me. Note that the firearms and deactivated former firearms that I have for sale are for sale in CANADA ONLY.

|BAYONETS - See my page " FOR SALE - EDGED WEAPONS "|
|$950 CAD E.A.L. Serial number 1640 Lee-Enfield .303 rifle. All original and complete, no holes drilled, not modified, rubber butt pad is intact. This type has the military style peep sight. Very low serial number. Apparently the civilian version.|
|$250 CAD RARE WWI and/or wartime emergency wooden drill rifle. Canadian issue marked C/|\. Still has military red tag attached. Used early in WWII when there were not enough rifles. Still had Canadian Army red tag attached. NOT A FIREARM - NO LICENCE NEEDED.|
Ruger MARK I semi-automatic pistol. .22" Long Rifle. With 1 magazine in the pistol and 1 spare magazine. Excellent condition. Digital copy of the manual is available. [Restricted]
|$900 CAD DEACTIVATED German P-08 Luger. Battle damaged. Struck by something, though we do not know what hit it. One thought was a a .50 Calibre bullet as one of these fits perfectly in place, but a retired police firearms forensics expert advised that it was battle damage but not caused by a high speed 5.50 cal bullet. We do not know what caused it. .45 ACP maybe? Projectile came in through the rear of the grip. Sadly this was previously sold at an auction and there is no provenance (history). Missing some smaller parts such as the side plate. Mix of serial number parts which is odd. DWM marked toggle. This was an older deactivation, by a projectile, and CANNOT be reactivated.This meets the requirements of the Canadian legal requirement for an older deactivation. No date but DWM and wooden grip suggest World War I. . Mixed serial numbers. An interesting conversation piece, especially for a Luger collector. Magazine CANNOT be removed. Toggle CANNOT be opened beyond about 1/2" due to damage. Trigger does not move.|
|$4,000 CAD Canadian Inglis No. 2 Mk. I* FACTORY SKELETON CUTAWAY "in the white". This is NOT made from a complete pistol, but from factory parts that were rejected or set aside for this. The only other one known is a No. 1 Mk. I* and that one is in the RCMP Firearms Collection in Ottawa. This has been examined by two Canadian Army Weapons Technicians who are trained to service and repair these pistols. They agreed thatb this meets the Canadian legal requirement for older deactivations (this would have been done in 1944-1945) and COULD >>> NOT <<< BE EASILY REACTIVATED. Even an expert gunsmith probably could not do so. This was confirmed by two Canadian Armed Forces Weapons Technicians (Armourers) who work on this weapon. The magazine is a more recent cutaway one, not done as professionally as the Inglis. The magazine will not hold more than about 3 cartridges as any more than that and they fall out. Comes in a custom box with drill rounds. THIS IS BELIEVED TO BE A ONE-OF-A-KIND ITEM.|
|$3,250 CAD INGLIS No. 2 Mk. I* pistol (Canadian 1944-1945 Browning High Power GP 35) in superb condition and with the CANADA Mutual Aid Program decal on the grip. These decals did not last long in use. Comes with P51 holster, lanyard, cleaning rod and spare magazine. Both magazines are modified to make them legal in Canada.|
DEACTIVATED Sterling SMG 9M/M L34A1 MK. 5 Original silencer also deactivated. Recent deactivation so only the butt stock and the rear sight function. Magazine not removable. Bolt and safety do not move. RARE. The only way to legally own a silencer in Canada. FOR SALE IN CANADA ONLY. NO LICENCE REQUIRED.
|$4,000 CAD Colt Government Model made in 1917. Same as the M1911 except that this one is Civilian production. If could be legally imported into the USA I believe. With FACTORY LETTER. WITH HISTORY. Superb condition, near mint. This pistol was sold commercially but ended up in Holland in 1945 with the U.S. Army. It was traded to a Dutch Resistance Member wno later emmigrated to Canada and had the pistol sent to him in Canada. His name etc. is known. Comes with his original U.S. Army WWII leather belt holster.|
|$1,900 Scarce very early Inglis 1944 No. 2 Mk. I* 9mm pistol Made on contract for SPECIAL OPERATIONS, EXECUTIVE. (S.O.,E.) This pistol is the 1,054th one made, S/N 0T1054. Barrel is misatched 0T2736 but is also 0Txxxx, so it was likely changed back then in service. Faint US import marking on front of grip. 0Txxxx are very rarely seen in Canada as they were sent to the UK for use by S.O.E. and Resistance groups. This one was brought back to Canada from the USA a few years ago. NOM-RESTRICTED CATEGORY. A first pattern web holster may be available at extra cost.|
TABLE 2 – FIREARMS PARTS AND ACCESSORIES
|$1,950 Trommel (drum) set for Maxim M.G. 08/15 light machine gun COMPLETE. Original bracket for mounting on M.G. 08/15, original WWI belt for the trommel. The belt is very fragile due to its age. It is a drum that holds a belt. Drum does not have the raised letter markings. The bracket is shorter, version. The Germans kept using the M.G. 08 and M.G. 08/15 into World War II.|
|$500 Telescope, Weaver 330C (click) in scarce ORIGINAL RINGS for the M1903A4 (Sniper's) rifle. A Springfield rifle, made by Remington in 1943. Scope had the drums that click, like the Army issue model. About 200 of these were issued, with cross-hairs (this one has a pointer) and serial number electric pencilled on (this one has NO serial number). This scope is great for making a clone or as a filler due to the rarity and high price of the military M73B1 scopes. This scope has a big chip out of the rear lens but is still usable and could be repaired. The real value here is the original rings.|

DEACTIVATED FIREARMS AND THE LAW IN CANADA – A deactivated firearm in Canada is NO LONGER A FIREARM AND NO LICENCE IS REQUIRED.
The deactivated items listed here are older deactivations. No paperwork from the RCMP exists nor is any paperwork needed. Contrary to the rumour and misunderstandings, it is NOT necessary to reweld them to current guidelines. Here are the RCMP’s own words on this: “The new standards will not affect the status of firearms that have already been deemed to be deactivated unless there is evidence that the firearm has been, or could easily be, reactivated. … The regulations pertaining to the safe storage and transportation of firearms do not apply to firearms that have been deregistered due to deactivation. It remains important, however, to store and transport them safely to deter loss or theft. “

ESTATES & DOWNSIZING:
I am happy to help families find good, LEGAL homes for unwanted firearms and militaria. Note that is you are dealing with firearms in an estate in Canada, the Executor may apply for special legal coverage to allow them to deal with the firearms (e.g. sell them to licenced people), even if they do not personally hold the relevant licences. Search: RCMP firearms Executor estates. Please DO NOT simply hand over firearms and ammunition to the police, even for temporary safe-keeping as these are VERY difficult to get back and are almost always destroyed. The R.C.M.P. members can be very uncooperative I have found and they sometimes lie (I was lied to several times as were others) and sometimes they are obstructionist, making the legal process very difficult. Just ask the people of High River, Alberta who had firearms and ammunition illegally seized by the RCMP after a flood. They police may even refuse to return any legal ammunition, even if placed with them in temporary safekeeping. I would be happy to help in any legal manner that I can.
THE RCMP AND FIREARMS:
My late father-in-law was BCPP (1941-1950) and RCMP (1950 – 1970) and he retired as a Staff-Sergeant. I worked with RCMP history for 8-years and I have great respect for what the NWMP/RNWMP/RCMP were. Sadly today, the RCMP have a very bad reputation regarding legal firearms and their licenced owners, as many, but not all, Mounties treat these law-abiding citizens like criminals.
- In High River Alberta, there was the illegal search and seizure of over 500 firearms (later returned upon the direct order of then Prime Minister Harper) and their seizure (and reported destruction) of thousands of rounds of ammunition worth a lot of money. This constituted theft and destruction of legally owned private property.
- As well they have disseminated incorrect information regarding the law. In Canada, one needs to have a valid firearms licence in order to obtain firearms or ammunition. It has been that way for many years. RCMP Assistant-Commissioner Fordy late in 2015 on a radio talk show said that anyone in Canada could buy ammunition without a licence. That is blatantly UNTRUE and is deliberately alarmist. Having been a policeman for many years, he MUST have known that BASIC fact of the law, so that raises the question of what his motives were.
- When obtaining a small firearms collection from an old veteran who had placed them for safe-keeping with the RCMP while he found a person who could accept them legally, I found that the RCMP Constable handling this LIED to me several times and was needlessly obstructionst. I finally had to go over his head and speak to his superior.
- Sadly, the RCMP are still at it in 2018. While Bill C-71, a stupid new gun law that the Liberals are ramming down our throats and which only hassles law-abiding gun owners and does NOTHING to restrain criminals, was still being discussed in Parliament and the Senate. The RCMP “jumped the gun” and put on their websites warnings for owners of certain presently legal non-restricted rifles (Swiss Arms and some CZ firearms) to register their firearms BEFORE the end of June 2018 or face confiscation BEFORE THE LAW WAS EVEN PASSED! (it has still not passed as of 2018-07-03). They were forced to take that down. It does shown the anti-gun bias that has developed in the last few decades of the RCMP.
- 2018-07-11 : Daniel Guay, Senior Firearms Technician, Firearm Technology Unit, Supervisor, RCMP Canadian Firearms Program (CFP) wrote to a collector who was purchasing a deactivated ex-firearm that had RCMP certification from 1975 and told the person that it had to conform to current standards which is incorrect and contradicts the RCMP’s own web site. He of all people should know the rules and this is yet another example of senior RCMP members giving out incorrect information. http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/bulletins/bus-ent/bulletin-58-eng.htm
To import a firearm from, or export one to, the USA:
This requires legal procedures. They MUST be imported/exported legally. I highly recommend “Borderview” in Lynden, Washington State. They hold both US FFL and Canadian PAL. They can legally move firearms etc. across the Canadian-American border as long as they meet legal requirements. Deactivated ex-firearms from Canada cannot go to the USA.
Do NOT try to smuggle guns from the U.S.A. into Canada or from Canada into the U.S.A.!
Remember this even though there is a double standard in Canada. Do not be like the Toronto policeman did and try to smuggle guns into Canada. This police officer was smuggling an unlicenced, PROHIBITED short barreled and LOADED revolver (not allowed in Canada), PROHIBITED brass knuckles and knives and had more illegal firearms at home. He received a conditional discharge, three-year probation and 20-days suspension. An ordinary citizen would have been convicted and jailed for years. [Reference: 2016-03-08 story “Toronto Cop Caught with Illegal Handgun, Brass Knuckles, Knives at US Border” by Stephen Spencer Davis].
Another police officer was caught (2016?) with an illegally possessed shotgun (he did not have a PAL) and it was stored unsafely as per the law. He too reportedly received a slap on the wrist.
For those who do not know, “concealed carry” is not allowed in Canada, except for bodyguards for politicians such as Prime Minister Trudeau and for a few police detectives. “Open carry” is also very limited (e.g. Armoured Car Guards) and even prospectors carrying armloads of gear in the wilderness have great difficulty in obtaining a permit to carry handguns for defence against bears, wolves, Wolverines etc. In Canada we are supposed to call 911 … and wait. “When seconds count, the police will be there … in minutes.” (or hours) so please remember ask your assailant to be patient.
A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION ON THE FIREARMS LAWS IN CANADA
- “Background Checks” are done EVERY SINGLE DAY ON EVERY LICENCED FIREARMS OWNER IN CANADA, contrary to the lies put out by the anti-gun crowd.
- EVERY legal firearms owner in Canada is vetted and licenced by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Anyone owning, buying or borrowing ammunition or firearms MUST have a licence (a “PAL”)
Canada has very strict laws concerning firearms. These laws are TOTALLY different from the U.S.A. The illegal firearms used by criminals and terrorists, contrary to the lies put out by the Liberal Government, are almost all are smuggled into Canada from the U.S.A. A small number are stolen from the military, from police forces, and a few from gun shops and private owners.
FIREARMS CATEGORIES IN CANADA:
In Canada it is illegal to own or have possession of any firearm and/or ammunition UNLESS one has one or more licences from the Federal Government (i.e. the R.C.M.P.) Even then one must have the right category of licence and in many cases, one must also have a licence for the particular firearm (e.g. a hand gun) AND have an Authorization to Transport to move said firearm anywhere. The Liberal Party are gradually prohibiting ALL types of firearms in Canada, adding more to the banned list every time they get into power. Canadians do not have firearms rights, unlike our neighbours in the U.S.A.
- Prohibited – I am not licenced for any of the many different “Prohibited” categories, so none are here. “Prohibited” categories includes live machine guns, converted-automatics (CA), small hand guns, many types of scary looking rifles, one-handed cross-bows, and now ALL AR-15 type civilian rifles, their uppers, some shotguns, some .22 calibre rifles etc. There are multiple categories of “Prohibited” and it is extremely confusing. Prohibited firearms can be deactivated at which time they become non-firearms and then they can be owned by anyone in Canada. NOTE: Almost all “Replica” firearms are PROHIBITED in Canada, even if made of wood and plastic. However most, but not all, AIRSOFT “guns” are legal because they actually fire something, though at low velocity.
- Restricted – PAL with restricted endorsement. Generally hand-guns and scary looking rifles that are not (yet) “prohibited” by the Liberal Government. .
- Non-Restricted – Standard PAL required.
- Antique – No simple definition. Very old and ammunition not easily available. No PAL required. The U.S. Pre-1898 rule does NOT apply, nor does “100-years” the normal definition of the word “antique”.
- Deactivated – No longer a firearm as the deactivation is PERMANENT. No PAL required. NOTE: Older deactivations DO NOT require additional deactivation to meet current guidelines as long as they cannot easily be reactivated. Deactivations in Canada today are usually done by gunsmiths who deregister them through the RCMP. In the past most deactivations were done by military forces and it is only recently that some deactivations come with paperwork. (ref. RCMP web site).
Confusing, isn’t it? Even the police do not understand all of these laws, partly because the laws are written by anti-gun people who have no idea what they are talking about.
