Check out these links: http://abc.net.au/news/newsitems/s747236.htm http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/1039841619361_8// Be sure to check out the video clip - it's hilarious. Anyone wanna bet these are Yugos? Media up here described them as modern, "high-powered", possibly full-auto, assault weapons, capable of holding 30-round magazines, and commonly used by criminals. They made special mention of the grenade launchers and bayonets. Oh - I especially loved the part where the SKS was described as the weapon of choice for many modern armies. My guess is a perfectly legal shipment of Yugo SKS rifles destined for (now disappointed) importers in the US and/or Canada. A legal shipment, illegally seized. Fellow Canadians on the board should take the time to send an email to CTV, pointing out that virtually everything in their "story" is incorrect. I did.

I told you my SKS was the bomb! [sniper] See, it is a modern assualt rifle.

Darn it, now I really want a folding-stock SKS. I just hope I'll be able to own a "Fully Automatic High-Tech Super-Powerful Assault Rifle with a Grenade Launcher and Bayonet".

They've been watching stories on the "militia" again.

Yep, and tomorrow they'll be back on their way here to the good ole US of A. Sound like Yugos to me too. Maybe somebody will be having a sale soon and get the price below $100. I'd like to buy five or six of em.

In light of the ATF's recent "concerns" about a "glut" of C&R-elgible rifles reaching America, I wouldn't be surprised, either...
