    Ruger 10/22s are great, however for someone who appreciates the historical significance of a Lee Enfield No. 8, there’s ZERO comparison between the two rifles.

    Sad isn’t it? I cringe to think that when the CAF finally does decide to replace their Hi-Powers they’ll likely all get tossed into the smelter. I’d certainly appreciate the opportunity to preserve a piece of history.

    Because of Policy. The government won't allow them to be sold to civilians there. If anyone is killed with a surplus police or military weapon the government will be vilified. No amount of taxpayers' money is too much to spend, waste, lose in avoiding that.

    That'd just temporarily delay the destruction, sadly....
    But there is only one person that I see on CGN as being truly despicable by every ethical and moral standards and worse: to be dangerous to the community itself, and that's Cyclone the subversive.

    After reading through this here I do not see any government Agency picking up the tab on this one for the sake of saving rifles. I would love to but alas, I do not really see a possible means of accomplishing it.
