LeeEnfield!

Back in 1959 Sears were selling these 303s for $11. My dad bought one but he turned it in back in the 90s when the police were taking in unwanted firearms. He was out east and I out west so never picked it up. Wasn't in great shape but shot it alot as a 16 year old kid.

Just curious, what are the barrel length requirements in Canada on a bolt-action or lever-action rifle? Are they the same as a semi or different?

No, they aren't the same.
You can't cut down the barrel below 18", but if it came from the factory with a shorter barrel it's ok. The over all length has to be over... um 26" I think? Somebody correct me on that.
We can get 8", 12" and 14" barrel shotguns with no restrictions other than it has to meet the OAL requirements. If you put a pistol grip on a 12" shotgun, it becomes the same class as a handgun.

No Savage Lee-Enfields were ever issued to the US military; the markings existed solely to maintain the pretence that American equipment was being lent to the UK rather than permanently sold to them.[7"
Thanks for the info, one if th cool things about milsurp's are the history behind them.

Thanks for the info. The reason I ask is that I have been contemplating a motorcycle trip to Alaska from the Lower 48 at some point in the next couple of years, and have a Marlin Guide Gun in 45/70 that I would like to take along. It has a fairly short barrel, I'm thinking just a little over 16". I'll have to check the OAL, although I'm pretty sure it's well over 26", and I'll also do some much more detailed checking and research on the topic before I actually load up and hit the road.

There's plenty of those guide guns kicking around up here. You're good. Here's mine, similar vein. A Rossi Puma 1892 in .454 Casull, 16" barrel and a Marbles tang sight. Hee.


Giddy up.

Instead of trying to hit a "person", aim for a smaller specific point. Like a shirt button. That way if you miss your exact target you'll hit closer than looking at the "big picture ".

It means aim at a small place ON the target, and even if you miss, you still hit the target. If one solely aims at the target (of course we are talking man sized targets) one can miss the target all together or miss a vital spot.

if the guide gun is as factory, it is legal.
