    Swiss Arms Prohibited



    Swiss Arms Confiscated

    Effective 10:00 pm eastern tonight the RCMP has reclassified the Swiss Arms Classic Green carbine from non-restricted (and restricted) to prohibited status. There are approximately 1,000 -1,800 of these firearms in the public. The government will not be offering compensation and will be demanding that the firearms, which cost between $3,000 - $4,000 be surrendered. The government is suggesting that all affected firearms owners contact the distributers from which the firearms were purchased for reimbursement.

    The NFA encourages all affected owners to contact their federal Member of Parliament.

    I don't own one personally....and in all honesty, if you own one, and I were you, I'd shut my mouth right now unless I was b-tching out my MP on a biblical scale for allowing the RCMP to steal private property and run the country. I'm pretty sure I saw each and every one of you guys lose your Swiss in that canoe accident we had last fall didn't I ? Looks like I'll have to change my signature line now.

    No my friend, sad would have been if you bought it and went shooting with it. You are lucky

    Interesting, no bulletin from the RCMP about this, which makes makes me question the authenticity of the information. If this is true they must post it as they did back in March of last year for the BD38 and BD3008.

    Maybe they are just slow at posting but until it's posted I am not getting to excited.

    With any luck, you're right. That being said, we should still raise hell.
