Interesting post, I've never understood how the laws work up there. So if you are grandfathered in by having your Full Auto Permit from prior to 1977, what happens at the time of your death? Can your heirs inherit the weapon? The goverment confiscate it or? Who, if anyone, can you sell the gun to?

I called about those same guns last year and contacted the imports branch of the ATF. I was told that with the proper paperwork (an import application) that a licensed importer could purchase but that the sale would be restricted to law anforcement or military only, and the weapons would never become transferable except to another PD or government agency. In other words, even an SOT would not be allowed to own these. When I contacted Marstar back, they confirmed this is why they are so cheap. Thye have virtually no one who is eligible to buy them, here or in Canada.

In Canada full auto weapons can only be sold to grandfathered licensed individuals and of course police/military.
So since they are not going to issue any more licenses the pool of potential individuals to buy these dwindles of course.

Thank you for the post.
It was never really clear to me how the Clinton "legacy" lives on to curse us.
Looks like unless Congress does something to overrule the Executive Order, which is very doubtful will ever happen, even PD's are stuck.

Would the Department of State been involved with this transfer if the Class 3 weapon(s) you had sought to import on a Form 6 had not been part of any United States foreign military weapon assistance or sales program?

What kind of things were said on the other two sites? UNless you got hit by trolls, how can somebody attack you for posting information straight from the source??? I wish we had a government that actually cared about upholding the Constitution as it was intended when it was written.: "Congress shall make NO[I] law that infringes ..."

| Hello Chitowngangster..|
If you're willing to part with $2,000 CDN plus tax and shipping this link should make you very happy. One of the deactivated firearms listed is a mint dewat 1928 Thompson. Click on the picture icon next to the description to see it on your monitor.
Dewats fall under a different category than replicas in Canada. This is no restriction on them as they are considered to be a non-firearm. Whether it makes sense or not that is the case.
I think you have been the victim of a considerable amount of false information from people who want to discourage your interest in this type of firearm.
Study the Canadian Criminal code section concerning firearms and know your facts. Keep cool and don't display emotion when discussing firearms with registry officials otherwise they will label you as someone they do not want owning firearms.
Finally i understand.
Wish they would have stated it your way.I think your right in that they are trying to disuade people.
