One key part of the new law restricted the number of rounds rifle and pistol magazines were allowed to hold. Most semi-automatic rifles were limited to five rounds; handguns were limited to Stricter limits for handguns were discussed and rejected at the time, Dixon said. The thinking, he explains, was that rifles are more reliably lethal from a longer range, and many of the handguns already in Canada at the time were designed for round magazines.
The limits seemed settled for years.
Review - XS Products X-14 drum magazine
It was a federal government talking point after the mass shooting in NewtownCt. Eventually the RCMP was asked whether it would be legal to put more than five rounds of rifle-type ammunition in a magazine designed for a handgun, and fire it from a rifle.
Handguns like this do exist. The image below shows an LAR pistol, which is really a kind of miniature rifle. In March ofthe RCMP issued a special bulletin clarifying this rule: When it comes to magazine capacity, it said, the Criminal Code is concerned with the kind of firearm the magazine was designed for, not what firearm it might be used in.
But using a functionally identical round magazine not stamped for pistol use could lead to a criminal charge of possession of a prohibited device, and up to 10 years in prison. As far as we could find, nobody in Canada can actually sell you an LAR pistol. The guns are very rare in this country — we found 75 of them in our copy of the firearms registry out of eight million guns registered in Canada as of last spring.
The U. Beowulf magazines are designed to hold five rounds of bullets that are more than twice the size of a normal rifle bullet. This brings us to two questions: How many rounds of much smaller rifle cartridges could you fit in this magazine?
And if you fired them out of a different rifle, would that be legal? Now you have 15 rounds of rifle ammunition in a rifle magazine — three times the capacity Parliament had in mind 20 years ago. As for the second question, a spokesperson for the federal Justice Department confirmed to Global News that using a Beowulf magazine as a higher-capacity magazine for a lighter-calibre semi-automatic rifle is legal.
And putting that many bullets in a rifle magazine at all would be illegal in six US states, as well as Washington, DC. Gun control advocates want the five-round limit to be reasserted. Get it wrong, and that could mean prison time. Why are they sitting on their hands? Gun rights advocates say this just proves that having magazine limits is pointless in the first place. In theory, he said, if a Beowulf pistol were made — with room for 10 rounds of oversized. Meantime, he added, the situation as it stands creates a legalistic trap for law-abiding gun-owners.
Think about the person who buys this at a gun show, because at the time it was perfectly legal, and next thing you know is the subject of a criminal charge and is facing a maximum of ten years in jail.Stay Connected:.

Thread Tools Show Printable Version. M14 Drum Mags? Looking at a couple of drums for the M Yes, I know they are pricey, but you only live once. Has anyone used these, or been around when they have been used and what did you think of them? Even if you don't know much about them, I would still be curious which one you would pick? Thanks for any help! Attached Images m1m Occam's razor, the simplest explanation will be the most plausible. Where was that in ? That might have been useful with an M14E2.
We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere. I've thought about these long and hard. Main reason I don't have one I'm cheap.
These are more of a novelty item IMHO. If I had the money to buy one, I would buy both. But if I had the money, I would probably buy something else I may enjoy more Imagine doing ready-up reflexive firing drills with it. Then again, Might as well get them while they're still legal.
Maybe if I had a select fire M Crap, now you've got me thinking on how much I want each one just to have I know the 50rd drums go on sale every now and then, but have no idea how easy or hard it is to get the Beta. Have yet to hear anything negative about them cycling. Between the 2, I would get the Beta since its twice the capacity for a little more.
You probably won't be carrying it too far, so might as well go all out. It's not really that high on my priority list. Last edited by Heyjowee; at PM. I like the look of the more traditional 50rd drum. Got to be lighter and easier to shoot standing, too.
Last edited by Ghoulardi; at PM.Total Awards : 1 Total Points : I returned from the desert a short while ago after testing the XS Products X fifty round drum magazine with company owner, James Malarkey. In the interest of full disclosure, Jim let me keep the X magazine when we finished without paying for it. The X is the latest model in a line of rifle drum magazines produced by XS Products. Jim and I both contributed to the ammunition expenditure. I provided two rifles for testing, one vintage SA, Inc.
Jim changed his travel plans this weekend and came up to Las Vegas so he could shoot some video of the X magazine in action.
It's been out less than a month and he was looking for some consumer feedback. Jim called up a local gun shop in Las Vegas where he expected they had an X magazine in stock. The shop did have one on the shelf so Jim arranged with the shop to pick it up so we could test it. The only quibble I have is that the X does not hold the bolt open after the last round but that is by design.
It is my understanding that the other drum magazines made by XS Products function likewise. Other than that, this thing is better than sliced bread. We ran rounds in automatic fire through the select fire M1A and fifty rounds through the semi-automatic only M1A.
Not one hiccup and not one blink of an eye. It performed flawlessly. Jim says they have tested the X with as much as 8, rounds on a single unit.
Each drum magazine is sold with a lifetime warranty.
The X is a stout piece of kit. It's made of a couple steel components but it is but mostly alloy aluminum. With a full charge, it's 4. However, it is very compact as compared to the Beta Company round magazine. When installed, you do not have to raise the height of the M2 bipod legs when prone, sweet! The X magazine prototypes were made in Oregon but production models are made in Washington. Jim shot some real time and slow motion video of us shooting both rifles with the X magazine.
He hopes to get the videos to me in the next day or two.
When he sends them to me, I'll post them on my YouTube channel. We previewed the videos and they look pretty good, including the full fifty round magazine dump. Do you need this? No Is it for everyone?
