    The 308 and 277 are sold with shorter barrels putting the length when folded under the minimum to still be non restricted. A possibility would be to bring them in with a muzzle device that puts the OAL over.

    Check the dropdown. They are non restricted if the barrel is long enough.

    Thanks for clarifying, honestly I assumed these would be the same as the Christensen MPR with a 16” barrel, but now that you mention it the MPR does come with a muzzle brake on it, maybe that’s the difference.

    No ... just a sandwich plastic device on the stock that when it was folded, protude for one inch at the rear making the rifle longer. This part could be ŗ sling holder qd or someting usefull . Pretending it can be remoove by the owner is like saying that nobody is able to saw off an old shotgun.

    I suspect itís moot now. They are in the FRT as restricted and adding something to make it longer isnít going to get the FRT changed. I suspect it would require a new model, the RCMP have another look at it, and another year wait to add a new entry to the FRT. The market probably isnít big enough for Sig or any importer to bother with.

    Anyone that wants the Cross should just get the 6.5.

    All these points are valid ones and a very interesting conversation to be had...but I'm flabbergasted that MD is not commenting on this! How about a sitrep, just give us the situation and what is being done to address the issue...nothing more, nothing less!

    Sadly, the restricted status could have easily been mitigated pre import, but no such effort was made. A simple thread on muzzle brake ( which has been mentioned well over a year ago) would have solved this problem before it became a problem.
    Thankfully I saw the $hit storm ahead of time and secured a 6.5 without issue. Safely sitting in the vault waiting for me to get home

    Since the restricted status is based solely on the OAL, is it still possible for MD Charlton to import one with a OAL over the minimum and have it added to the FRT database as non-restricted? This option would allow for two FRT entries that were different depending on the firearm OAL.

    a muzzle break wont change the classification unless it's an integral part of the barrel.

    I've spoken to MD and they are working on a non restricted 308. They only have the 6.5CR and requested FRT for that.
    RCMP filled in the gaps and created the restricted FRT based on 16inch barrel OAL.

    So at least another year to go unless you get it in 6.5
