You first have to obtain a "non restricted" PAL (possession and acquisition license) and then you can buy non restricted rifles and shotguns.

If you want pistols and such, then you have to obtain a "restricted" PAL.

Otherwise there are no limits on the number of weapons or the amount of ammo you can buy !!

Speaking of which, here is the SVT-40 I wanted to buy... mine is on the bottom.

Here it is a lot more strickt. You have to be a hunter or a member of a shooting club. And then you have to tell them why you want a gun. And you cannot have more than 5 kilo grams of gunpowder, or more than 5000 bullets.

I just found out you can get 1956-vintage (cobbled together from armory parts and marketed by IZH) Moisin-Nagants here in Winnipeg at Canada Tire on Kenaston for around $189.00.

Cool !!

I did not know Canadian Tire still handled firearms.

I will have to go down there and have a look.

Thx !!

To the best of my knowledge Canada Tire still handles "mighty implements of banging" (as a friend of mine put it--poor fool didn't realize just how badly that statement can be misconstrued) but only select stores do. Such as the Kenaston one, the one store in Brandon also deals in guns also. I know not if the one in Portage still handles guns or the one in Winkler/Mordern does either.

According to friend of mine, back around 2004 a guy pocketed a shotgun shell and went to the Canada Tire on Notre Dame and asked to examine a shotgun. He then loaded it and killed himself with it. If this account is true, I can see why Can-Tire doesn't care to handle to many firearms any more.

Back to the Moisins, I do not know if Kenaston store handles 7.62 x 54R-mm ammo for the Moisin or SVT/AVS. You probably know Cabela's and Wholesale Sports carry the round.

I was at Cabelas and fellow customer told me that Wholesale gets SVT (or is it AVS?) for around $250.00 every now and then. I think you got the better deal.

That's right, Wholesale Sports gets SVT-40s from time to time and that is where I was going to buy mine for my 50th birthday... but the Lever Arms deal was too good to pass up !!

Cheers !!

It was my 49th birthday on September 19th and I decided to buy myself another Mosin Nagant with my birthday loot !!!

Went to the Canadian Tire off McPhillips in Winnipeg, Manitoba and picked up a very nice 1940 round receiver made at the Izhevsk (or Izzy as I call it) arsenal.

Can't wait for that first trip to the range !!

Finally able to bring my "Birthday Mosin" to the cottage for some shooting time !!

Also, I have a lead on another Mosin (ex-Dragoon) and I have made arrangements to meet with the seller early next week.

Excited !!

Well, the "Birthday Mosin" performed quite well. No "sticky bolt" issue and nice and accurate.

Once I got back to town I got in touch with the guy selling the ex-Dragoon...

went over to have a look and bought it !!

Took it all apart, took some pics, cleaned it up, oiled it, check the firing pin protrusion... and now she's good to go !!

FYI - A Dragoon is a version of the M91 that is the same length as an M91/30, but has the M91 type sights and a unique handguard. This model was phased out in the early 1930s and replaced by the M91/30. An updated Dragoon has the sights and hand guard replaced with the M91/30 types. It is basically an M91/30 in that configuration, but because it is dated pre-1930 it is often referred to as an ex-Dragoon or updated Dragoon by US collectors. While certainly not as rare as a Dragoon in original configuration they are less common than post 1930 M91/30s and sought after by many collectors.

And now... the pics.











Weird shim ??


Both types of Izhevsk markings on the tang.


Usual bizarre markings






"00" is an accuracy proof and "Circle K" is a point of aim proof.






What with the 2 ??

The Soviet Saga continues...

Well... the Mosin I bought last November was traded, along with some cash, for another SVT-40 !!

This one has the original stock and was made in 1941 !!



It is the "older brother" to the '43 I bought in Dec. 2013 !!
