    Why S&W decided to make a "pistol" version of the gun is anyones guess. Just dumb IMHO. The RCMP could have banned it's entry for some reason and left the mag capacity as it was.

    Making this rifle restricted based upon looks was perhaps dumber than S&W move but then nobody recently, said the RCMP management team has a high degree of competancy either.

    Good on North Silva for offering this service.

    Take Care

    No; All "handguns" must be limited to 10 round magazines, regardless of caliber.
    Although these are indeed rimfire rifles, the same magazines are also made for a handgun variant. (Thus making them suddenly illegal)

    No, it is because there is an M&P15-22 pistol, so the mags that work in both are now reduced to 10 rounds because they are also a pistol magazine.

    Now, just to confuse matters, S&W has stopped production of the M&P 15-22 pistol, so now it appears that stores are selling the 25rnd mags again.

    I have no idea, I sold my rifle over all this crap, but if we're back on 25rds I'll buy another, no problem. Great guns!

    Won't matter, once a prohibited device always as such. As long as one S&W M&P22 exists, the mag with that part number will be prohib. Release exactly the same mag with a different part number now that there is no pistol and "Bob is your uncle".

    What about using a M&P rifle with an aftermarket 25 round magazine that fits? Would that be okay?

    Funny they still sell the unpinned ones at the local gun stores and the new guns still have the unpinned one in the box...I have asked owners of the stores I have seen them in about them being prohibited and they tell me that they have received no such notification from the CFO and still sell them...

    Just like thousands of owners who have them and have not been notified, nice to see the 3billion waste of space working great...

    There a lot of recent posts on this issue. Does anyone from North Sylva have anything new to report? Did the M&P AR pistol even make it into Canada before it was discontinued?

    Doesnt bother me because both are restricted. If this happens to 10/22 magazines though, I will be pissed.
