So what do you think... is it legal to own here in Canada?

Now before you answer or give your opinion look at what it is called first.

Thompson 1927A1 .45 ACP Semi-Auto Carbine Rifle



This Thompson Model 1927A1 .45 ACP Semi-Auto Carbine Rifle was manufactured in 1989 by Auto Ordnance Corporation. The left side of the receiver is marked “MODEL OF 1927A1 THOMPSON SEMI-AUTOMATIC CARBINE CALIBER .45 AUTOMATIC CARTRIDGE”. The other side is marked “AUTO-ORDNANCE CORPORATION WEST HURLEY, NEW YORK U.S.A.”

The barrel is 16 inches.

This is my thoughts... It's not a real Thompson but a Thompson look-a-like. The 16' inch barrel makes it restricted but the fact that it's a Semi-auto Carbine Rifle does not make it a prohib. So I think you could have one here in Canada as long as you have an R-PAL.

What are you thoughts or even better facts of law?

I think it would be legal to own. But even so wouldn't the mags have to be pinned to hold only 5 rounds?

Yes, the mag or drum would have to get pinned to 5.

Yes, the barrel does look out of wack but it still looks very cool. And since I could never own an actual shooting version of the Thompson... this would be as close as I could get.

And yes I have a lead...

I shot a TSMG with live ammo when I was in Vegas. It was fun. This carbine looks sorta cool. The semi auto, long barrel, 5 rd mag...not sorta cool.

Nice gun regardless.

Just found out that they also come in a 10.5 inch barrel but is still a carbine.
So, that makes it look the part.

I know there are a lot of 10.5 inch barrelled carbine rifles that are legal in Canada... restricted.

This would fall into the 12.5 Prohibited Class. As a 'variant' of the original Thompson. Much like AKs, M4 variants etc., as mentioned by Herr Krieger.

Even if you have a Prohib licencse in this class, there is no legal way to take them out of your safe, aside from sale or repair.
