    2. Separately from #1, if it uses AR mags, they wi have to be pinned to 5 rounds. But if it uses proprietary mags (think LAR pistol) then the possibility of having Troy Pump Action Rifle 30-rounders that just so happen to fit my AR and are legal is huge.
    That definitely won't happen. If it happens to accidentally fit an AR, they will simply call it an AR magazine.

    However; If they make the gun with a proprietary magazine (that won't fit anything else) then we will have the luxury of unpinned magazines for it.

    Because with a pump you don't have to have your trigger hand leave it's place and work the bolt...which you have to do even on a SPAR. It would be faster, IMO, to re-acquire the target with a pump.
    Just IMO.

    I like it. But only if it were in 30 cal..

    pump action rifle, i never saw something like this before.
    they could make a little slot in the receiver for the mag, so that normal R-fiffteen mag dont fit.
    a simple filling job would make any standard 30round mag fit.

    Normally I'd agree fully.

    But... LAR pistol mags fit AR15 and can hold 10. and if I recall correctly AIA mags fit M14 without modification and were allowed. It's a possible scenario but I agree it's just not likely.

    Its not the mag that it takes thats the issue for the gun being restricted. Its the lower receiver.

    And the MVP using AR mags, but still having to be pinned to 5 is because the gun is advertised as using AR mags.
    If a bolt/pump gun was made, and a manufacturer uses the same basic design/dimensions as an AR mag, but stamped on it being meant for this particular round/rifle(but coincidentally happened to fit into an AR15). It would be unpinned.
    Examples being the LAR-15 and the AIA enfield mags that fit the M14

    But the major market being the US, and they already have lots and lots of AR mags, it will always be marketed as using AR mags.

    Sounds like you're describing a Mossberg MVP Varmint.

    If this is accurate, reliable, and NR, I think it would do well.

    I am assuming of course that it would have an 18.5" barrel for Canada.
    But an accurate pump .223 NR rifle for under $800. would be a lot of fun. especially with 10 round magazines.

    wouldn't that make a normal 30rd r15 mag modified and prohibited? that's a no no.

    anyways ... back to the original subject.

    it's still a nice looking rifle, would make a great truck gun, hiker .. etc.

    Depending on classification and price I'd get one.
