    I checked with iRun and the email I got back says this model is classed as restricted. Didn't get clarification as to why, I suspect the RCMP saw that it says pistol on the box.

    Edit: got confirmation, FRT got stamped as pistol.

    Remember OAL requirements for NR firearms do not apply, so long as (A) the gun cannot be fired when reduced to less than minimum length "by means of a folding or telescoping stock", and (B) the firearm is not "sawed-off or otherwise altered" to below minimum length.

    The Rossi Ranch Hands have a 24" overall length and are still NR, because Rossi calls them rifles, AND they do technically have a "stock" which further reinforces their claim that the Ranch Hand is indeed a rifle.

    I believe the damning factor here will be that Remington has called this a "pistol" though, which sets a different precedent...

    Calgary Shooting Center has announced that they are bringing them in with a MagPul buttstock. They will be arriving this summer. Non-restricted.

    though if the FRT already got stamped with pistol and R they might have a hard time delivering on that. Fingers crossed.

    There is the Mare's Leg precedent - handgun in the US, n-r long gun here.
    Maybe the same with this 700 - handgun in US with arm brace (which is not legally a buttstock in the US), n-r long gun here with MagPul buttstock.

    Along these lines, I've been sitting on a couple of XP100 barrels and a M600 action. Could be used to make up a very compact carbine.

    We will reach out to SSFS on Monday to inquire about a rifle status should the overall length be 26". The Manufacturer sells that firearm in the US as a Bolt action Pistol and as such the RCMP most likely followed suit.

    If you guys get this sorted as NR, let me know. I want it and I will buy it.

    Yup I want one in 308. I'm surprised it took this long for them to get attention they have been around a while.
