RCMP List of newly prohibited firearms as of May 26, 2020

On May 29th, the R.C.M.P. published a new public version of the Firearms Reference Table that included a list of all firearms affected by the May 1st Order-in-Council firearms ban as of May 26th.  Below is the link to the list of newly-prohibited firearms as of May 26th.  The R.C.M.P. will continue to prohibit firearms indefinitely using the classifications outlined in the OIC including:

Paragraph 83 – firearms of the designs commonly known as the SG-550 rifle and SG-551 carbine, and any variants or modified versions of them, including the SAN Swiss Arms;

Paragraph 87 – firearms of the designs commonly known as the M16, AR-10 and AR-15 rifles and the M4 carbine, and any variants or modified versions of them;

Paragraph 88 – firearms of the design commonly known as the Ruger Mini-14 rifle, and any variant or modified version of it;

Paragraph 89 – firearms of the design commonly known as the US Rifle, M14, and any variant or modified version of it

Paragraph 90 – firearms of the design commonly known as the Vz58 rifle, and any variant or modified version of it;

Paragraph 91 – firearms of the design commonly known as the Robinson Armament XCR rifle, and any variant or modified version of it;

Paragraph 92 – firearms of the designs commonly known as the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 carbine and CZ Scorpion EVO 3 pistol, and any variants or modified versions of them;

Paragraph 93 – firearms of the design commonly known as the Beretta Cx4 Storm carbine, and any variant or modified version of it;

Paragraph 94 – firearms of the designs commonly known as the SIG Sauer SIG MCX carbine, SIG Sauer SIG MCX pistol, SIG Sauer SIG MPX carbine and SIG Sauer SIG MPX pistol, and any variants or modified versions of them;

Paragraph 95 – any firearm with a bore diameter of 20 mm or greater — other than one designed exclusively for the purpose of neutralizing explosive devices;

Paragraph 96 – any firearm capable of discharging a projectile with a muzzle energy greater than 10,000 joules.

The term “variant” is at the sole discretion of the R.C.M.P. Firearms Program and it’s unclear at this point how this is being applied.  An additional 500 firearms have been changed to prohibited in the FRT since May 1st, in addition to the initial 1,500 firearms specifically identified in the OIC.  Changes to firearms classifications have been made through May 26th.  We have not received confirmation that changes to current domestically-available firearms are complete.
