As a result of the current controversy, the CSAAA advises Canadian distributors, wholesalers and dealers with current inventories of any 10/22 high capacity magazines (any magazine not limited to 10 rounds) to cease the trade or transport of these products, now considered prohibited by the R.C.M.P., until further advised.
Retailers should remove the product from store shelves and websites and store safely. We do not recommend destroying, returning or “turning in” these products to anyone at this time until further clarification is received.
Retailers are advised to tell their customers who currently own any of these magazines not to transfer, trade, or “turn in” these magazines at this time. Nor should they attempt to modify or “pin” the magazines themselves. Consumers should keep the products safely stored in its current location and await further clarification from the national office of the R.C.M.P. Firearms Program. Not all local CFOs or Law Enforcement offices have been informed of this change nor to they have specific instructions on what businesses or consumers are to do. The CSAAA advises businesses to wait for specific, published information from the R.C.M.P. Firearms Program.
