First, would doing so be legal.

Second, I have a canadian (nyuk nyuk , eh) friend who is a machinist. He said that he would build one if I could provide plans. Any ideas on how to build one? Would it be legal if left in canada? :)

I'd say be careful...

IF I remember correctly, high capacity mags may be illegal in Canada too... Don't quote me on that!

IF NOT then if its left there I don't see it being a problem.

Then you could only use it while you are there.

One of the quirky things about Canada is that there magazine law depends on caliber, and there is no limit on the magazine capacity of .22's, but is 5 rounds on center fire rifles rounds, I forgot the number for centerfure pistols.

well your canadian friend could spend $20canadian and buy a brand new butler creek 10/22 hi-cap to use as a design aid
10/22 hi caps are still made and legal to sell in canada from what I've been told by people claiming to be canadian on other forums

Wonder if you could permanantly attach some sort of "tubular" device that would hold 100 or so 22. I suppose they would have to go end to end like in a regular tube fed to be legal under that. The damn .22 just isn't as fun with only 10 at a time, and ammo is so cheap. Arghh.

Maybe the sunset will happen and I won't have to worry about "canadian" friends.

I live near Canada and see the Butler Creek 25 round mags all the time. 22 caliber hi-caps are not restricted in Canada. The plastic lip ones are $30 Canadian dollars (CD) and the metal lip ones are $40-45 CD. It would be half that in US dollars. The mags are marked for export only and have the sept 94 date on them.

I suppose it would be easy but illegal to grind off the export only and date markings and bring some back, not that anyone would ever go around looking in one's range bag.

Sigh...So near and yet so far.

PS. I saw what I thought was a BC mag at a recent local gun show. It was plastic, had no markings on it whatsoever, (appeared that all the markings had been polished off), It was painted orange and it looked like a piece of plastic had been glued over the lips of the mag.

I asked the guy what it was and he said it was a training mag. (yeah, right)I pointed out to him that the plastic over the feed lips could be easily broken off. He said it is a training magazine, was not operable and what you did with it after you bought it was not his business.
