    Ishapore FNs : 12(3) or 12(5)?

    I recently took a look on used firearms and I found 3 Fns in Used Rifles category. They are described as "12(3)" prohibited. Did their classification change? I have one as a 12(5) grandfathered. Just hope that I won't have any problem to buy another one (looking for plastic furniture British L1A1) or keep mine...

    If it's classified as a 12.3, it started its glorious life with a "happy switch"!

    Classification did not change. I have two 12.5 too. Though if they did, I would be able to buy some 12.3's

    With all the "reclassification" stuff, I had some doubts...

    Some FN FAL's are 12-3 and some 12-5. There have also been a number miss-classified in both. Rigrat

    I know that some FN FALs are 12(3) but L1A1s and 1A1 are supposed to be 12(5), originaly semi-autos. It's the case for mine. I had a fear that giving a 12(5) to their owners 18 years ago and changing classification of the firearms to 12(3) gave them the right to ask for surrending of the rifle...

    Hope laws will change one day.

    When people say :- We live in a free country.
    i'll tell them:- I dont think so.
    if they say :- Why not?
    i'll tell them :- Cause automatic weapons are prohibited and many semi autos are phohibited also.

    RIP automatics weapons.......

    My Ishy is 12-5, but I recall talking to a guy from North Vancouver being told by North Van RCMP that it had to be altered internally somehow.
    The trip lever thing had to be ground down and welded in place, IIRC.
    So maybe some guns were treated as FA?
