    Bx25 have to be, as they are marketed/packaged for both the charger and 10/22. It's the other ones, butler creek ect that are in limbo, as they were designed before the charger existed.

    Yeah I'm sure they are considering that the BX25 kicked off this whole display of RCMP abuse of power and incompetence.
    If I'm not mistaken this was an opinion letter sent by an RCMP anti-firearms lab tech, not a new law or the direct banning on these mags.

    It is NOT law. An RCMP lab tech discovered that they inadvertently approved a pistol version of the 10/22 (the Charger) without thinking for 5 seconds and realizing that they can be used with extended mags. So instead of taking responsibility for their mistake they recommended the banning of all extended mags for the 10/22 and instructed gun stores to stop selling the mags in stores. Not sure what section of the Firearm Act gave them this power though but that has never stopped the RCMP.

    Even their opinion letter clearly states that officers should not seize the mags nor arrest people that possess them as a stand alone charge. They can only direct people to have them pinned. That doesnt sound like a law to me.

    IT DOES however provide officers arrest powers for people that unpin a pinned high capacity 10/22 mag. So take that for what its worth.

    Thats not quite accurate and it does sound like you are the one who hasn't taken the time to read and understand the law, probably like most of the people who don't understand whats going on with the 10/22 issue.

    The law states that a magazine is prohibited if :

    it is capable of containing more than 10 cartridges of the type for which the magazine was originally designed and is designed or manufactured for use in a semi-automatic handgun that is commonly available in Canada.
    This in fact asks two questions :

    1- Is the Ruger 10/22 25-round mag capable of containing more than 10 cartridges of the type for which the magazine was originally designed?
    The answer is YES, it is capable of containing 25 cartridges

    and

    2- Is it designed OR MANUFACTURED for use in a semi-automatic handgun commonly available in Canada?
    The answer is YES, it is (also) manufactured for use in the pistol version of the 10/22 that is commonly available in Canada

    answering yes to both these questions means the magazine is in fact prohibited.
    Objectively, its not the RCMP's fault, but rather the manufacturer's fault for releasing a pistol version of the rimfire rifle that uses the same mags.

    Clearer?

    Youza.
