    .308 Magazines

    By no means am I a legal expert, but can you shed some light on the 10 round .308 short action mags you sell, how are they legal in Canada? I was always under the impression that rifle mags had to be pinned at 5 rounds, unless the mag was designed for a handgun (with 10 round capacity) which was usable in a carbine. Thanks!

    That law does not apply to magazines designed for bolt action rifles.

    Hello Sir

    You are simply confused between the semi-automatic regulations and bolt action regulations.

    A ten round magazine is perfectly legal on a bolt action rifle.

    Have a great weekend.

    Technically speaking, a 50 round drum would be legal for a bolt action :D
