    They are Canada Geese, not "Canadian Geese".

    If they say "Sari" all the time you can pretty much guarantee they're Canadian.

    I think you are good as long as you don't intend to put those parts on an AR.

    Mate get a grip and do the work...learn how to read... if your part is intended for use on a bolt action then its legal.. I would make sure that it stays on it cause if it's seperate then it could be argued that it is for a different purpose.

    You won't be able to get new ones easily though because of their potential use on an AR15, they will automatically define them as a prohibited part.

    Mentions parts, not sure what this includes. Be good to get a buy back for scopes/silencers. And what about the ammo! Reloading dies, powder, primers, cases. Lol, a life time of stuff I've brought!

    @Sidney

    that's what I understand:

    Prohibited parts are:

    Parts of prohibited firearms; and
    Components that can be used to make a firearm fire with (or near to) semi-automatic or automatic action.


    double interpretation, you know what I mean?

    english not being my first language, I surely understand better than you

    The Firearms Owners United NZ facebook page put up a good image: https://www.facebook.com/firearmowne...type=3&theater

    Why I bring this up is because there are a plenty of .22LR AR-15s out there. While the MP5 clone isn't a prohibited firearm (it isn't even E-Cat anymore) the .22LR AR15 most likely will be because the lower receiver can be used on a normal .223 upper creating a functioning prohibited firearm. If the lower of your .22LR AR15 can't be used on a standard .223 upper then it isn't prohibited.

    I hope I'm making sense, these new laws are doing my head in.

    Doesn't the pistol grip still prohibit the top one?

    Yes, I would have thought so. Under preexisting mssa laws?
