    FAMAE rifle import details

    Well it took long enough but we have finally received the details on the proposed FAMAE rifle production, things move slowly in#Chile and we wanted to ensure we had accurate details before passing anything along.

    We have attached drawings of the rifles to be produced. Each will ship with a picatinny quad rail, side folding adjustable stock, flip up sights, and two magazines. Note the#bipod and optics shown are not included. The SG543 (5.56mm) is restricted( 300mm barrel), the SG540 (5.56mm) and 542 (7.62x51mm) are non restricted (480mm barrels). The SG540 and SG543 will accept STANAG magazines. The SG542 uses a proprietary magazine. Please note that no other options#are available on this order. All rifles will be black. While we will be ordering in parts and accessories to support these rifles, we have not yet received pricing and cannot yet take pre orders. CSC does have many repair parts in stock and we have experience in repairing the FAMAE series of rifles. We will warranty the rifles we sell and do the warranty work right here in Calgary.

    Here is the bad news. The guaranteed price for these rifles is $3299 and the expected delivery date is July 2022.# Due to the long production lag and the uncertainty of the Canadian gun laws there is some risk that these rifles may be prohibited before they are shipped. Furthermore FAMAE requires a significant minimum order to consider production. As such we are forced to require a $1000 deposit on each rifle ordered. All deposits must be paid by 15 June 2021.Once paid the deposit will be non refundable until the rifles arrive in Canada. At that point if you wish a refund it can be arranged. If the rifles are prohibited before arriving in Canada all deposits will be forfeit. If we do not achieve minimum order quantities by 15 June any deposits paid will be returned and the project cancelled. We appreciate that this exposes the purchasers to some risk, but this project is only feasible if that risk is shared between our business and the customer. We must pay up front for these rifles and we can not afford to risk the entire amount.

    If you are interested in ordering one of these rifles or if you have any further questions concerning the rifles, please contact orders@theshootingcentre.com

    There is no need to post in this thread that you are not interested. Please keep the thread clear so that questions can be addressed.

    Thank you for being crystal clear with us, I'm glad you were transparent with the risk.

    I for one feel that it's still a good deal. Especially as I'll have a year to squirrel money away each month for it.

    I appreciate that the deposits would be forfeit and I can understand why but would you be willing to provide a discount code or some similar thing to customers who lose their deposit for a say a year so that they can recoup losses while buying from you and you still making revenue/profit from their purchases? Just a thought.

    I agree. Question for the OP: does this new 540 take the same mags as the older 540/543? I still have a few mags left over from my old 540.

    I take no responsibility for an EE item once it has been shipped.

    No, these will take STANAG mags.

    If the guns are prohibited after being paid for, we will loose a significant amount of our own money and be suffering like everyone else (and on a much larger scale). Sorry but at that point we will be sorting out our own finances and will not be in a position to provide more of anything.

    We would point out that this will likely be the way ahead for most semi auto rifle imports going forward. The Liberals have done everything they can to make import risky and expensive.

    Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary

    Compliments to OP for clear communication and making the effort despite the legal uncertainty.
