FOR SALE – Firearms & Deactivated Firearms

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.

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, 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.  

  1. Prohibited – I am not licenced for any of the “Prohibited” categories, so none are here.    Eventually no one in Canada will legally be allowed to own those types. Category includes live machine guns, converted-autos (CA), small hand guns, many types of scary looking rifles, one-handed cross-bows 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 can be owned by anyone in Canada. .
  2. Restricted – PAL with restricted endorsement. Generally hand-guns and scary looking rifles. 
  3. Non-Restricted – Standard PAL required. 
  4. Antique – No simple definition. Very old and ammunition not easily available.  No PAL required. 
  5. Deactivated – No longer a firearm as the deactivation is PERMANENT.  No PAL required. 
    1. NOTE: Older deactivations DO NOT require additional deactivation to meet current guidelines as long as they cannot easily be reactivated. Deactivations in Canada are usually done by gunsmiths though in the past most were done by military forces and it is only recently that some have paperwork. (ref. RCMP web site).

Ross sniper rifle clone
Ross sniper rifle clone with Warner & Swasey Model of 1913 scope and case.

Ross sniper CLONE 300GG W&S scope SN 5
Ross sniper CLONE 300GG W&S scope SN 5
Ross Rifle Mk. III SNIPER CLONE complete with an original U.S. Army issued M1913 sniper scope in an original bracket. The bracket mounted permanently on the rifle is serial number "5" and is probably a reproduction. The serial number on the scope was removed in two places and a fake serial number "5" was added. The scope had been disassembled in the past and the reticle is turned 90 degrees to the left, though this is hardly noticeable. Replica rubber eye cup (made for Hayes Otoupalik). The original Canadian Ross sniper rifles are incredibly rare and none are on the market. Perhaps fewer than 10 exist. Even assembling a clone is very difficult, especially finding the mount for the W&S M1913 scope which handles the elevation and windage external to the scope. Now includes a spare Ross Mk. III barrel with front sight assembly. Barrel shows damage from clamp used to remove barrel. Includes a U.S. made scope case for the M1913 (shown on right, in light brown leather. Note replica nose cap for the stock, in the white, has now been fitted. NOTE: THE DARK BROWN CANADIAN MADE SCOPE CASE IS NOT, REPEAT NOT, INCLUDED. $3,600 [Non-Restricted] THIS AD WAS REVISED 2020-03-28.

DEACTIVATED World War German 1917 Light Machine Gun M.G. 08/15 , made by Gwf. SPANDAU in 1917. Captured by Canadians, with BATTLE DAMAGE! It still has capture markings painted on the side of the cooling jacket. It shows up in the ledger of war trophy guns. It is marked "UNCLAIMED" and a number. This was almost certainly captured in the LAST 100 DAYS of World War I in the battles of Amiens, Arras, D-Q Line, Cambrai etc. So many were captured that only some had a detailed capture history. This one has a hole from an artillery shell fragment or hand grenade fragment on the left side of the cooling jacket by the filling plug hole. This example is basically complete except for the pistol grip and trigger assembly., which is missing on most examples. There is no lock (breech block) as is usual. Body, body cover and barrel are matching serial numbers 121b (i.e. 10,121st M.G. 08/15 made by SPANDAU. The Fusee cover is SN 4608 and the feed block is SN 4163a. Most of these surviving specimens have some mixed serial number parts. INCLUDES: Original butt stock (missing insert which appears to have fallen out when wood dried excessively), flash hider/booster assembly ( shortened slightly, likely to remove battle damage to the muzzle), feed block, scarce hose fitting. The ONLY reason I am letting this one go is that I have another one in worse condition, but with detailed capture history. $3,800

DEACTIVATED World War I German Light Machine Gun M.G. 08/15 serial number 8483. Captured by Canadians in WWI, likely in 1918 during the Last 100 Days when so many were captured and only some were marked with capturing unit information. Mismatched body cover off of SN 6649a, a 1917 SPANDAU. This deactivated gun is missing the following: Pistol grip and trigger assembly (most are missing this), feed block, flash hider, exhaust housing, lock, and little bits. Butt stock is original but heavily sanded, apparently due to previous battle damage. It has the bi-pod which is frequently missing. Gun is very clean. NO LICENCE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE IT. A few accessories are available separately (belt sections). $2,000

Soviet 1944 Mosin 91/30 SNIPER made by TULA with matching 1943 PU scope made by PROGRESS. TULA is the rare maker as most of these sniper rifles were made by Izhevsk. Rifle has "CH" mark over the chamber indicating SNIPER. Scope serial number os also on left side of rifle. This was standard for Iszhevsk but uncommon on Tula made rifles. NO electric pencilled markings which were often put on during refurbishment. NO import marks found. Includes sling and leather scope caps, and metal double necked oil bottle. This one appears to be refurbished but no refurbishment marks found on scope or stock. Ordinary Mosin 91/30 rifles are now being listed for sale in the $300-400 range. This is an original SNIPER. I do not need to sell it but I do have a weakness for lovely Long Branch Lee-Enfield rifles. Open to trading for a very, very nice original 1941 Long Branch No. 4 Mk. I. $1,500

DEACTIVATED German P-08 Luger. Battle damaged. Struck by something, apparently a .50 Calibre bullet as one of these fits perfectly in place. Projectile came in through the rear of the grip. Sadly this was previously sold at an auction and there is no provenance. Missing some smaller parts such as the slide plate. 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 maker or date. Mixed serial numbers. An interesting conversation piece, especially for a Luger collector. $1,000

Canadian Inglis No. 2 Mk. I* FACTORY 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. 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. $4,000

1943 BSA Shirley No.4 Mk. I rifle with a very unusual, but original, serial number. " X 0026" It went through Factory Thorough Repair (F.T.R.) and was later sporterized after the war. The barrel is full military profile with bayonet lugs but is marked "SURREY" on top (hidden by hand guards) and there are 4 small holes on the body upper surfaces to mount a civilian scope. The normal gunsmith repair for these would be to insert a machine screw then cut it off flush and touch up or refinish the metal. The furniture is all WWII British original wood and metal. The serial number is "X 0026" which appears on the socket, left sidewall and bolt. Complete with sling and No. 4 spike bayonet, scabbard, brass oil bottle and pull through. $650

DEACTIVATED FIREARMS AND THE LAW IN CANADA – A deactivated firearm in Canada is NO LONGER A FIREARM AND NO LICENCE IS REQUIRED.

http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/bulletins/bus-ent/bulletin-58-eng.htm

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 sell off etc. the firearms, 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 and sometimes make the legal process very difficult. They may even refuse to return any 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 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.
