    This is it. Like in the US laws regarding "may vs shall" semantics. "Can" here typically means "we will never allow you".

    Currently there is no official amnesty in place for unregistered
    restricted firearms. Individuals wanting to dispose of the firearm
    should contact their local police (RCMP). If an individual is in
    possession of an unregistered restricted firearm and they wish to keep
    it, they must meet the following requirements:

    They must have a valid PAL with acquisition privileges to the
    restricted level.

    They must apply to register the firearm online or through a paper
    application form CAFC 998. You can obtain the form or do the online
    application at www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf. You will need to indicate
    "Other" for the type of acquisition and provide details- from whom you
    acquired the firearm and when. Please indicate Amnesty on the top of
    the form or in spot for type of acquisition if doing an online
    application.

    These applications are forwarded to the registry for approval, and they
    will be the ones to investigate and decide on the application.

    Note: this applies to unregistered restricted firearms only and not
    unregistered prohibited firearms.

    Please view the following website for information on restricted and
    prohibited handguns:

    http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/fs-fd/rp-eng.htm

    Before the firearm can be registered, it will need to be verified by an
    approved verifier.

    Verification can be done over the telephone by contacting our office at
    1 800 731-4000. You would need to have the firearm with you so that the
    make, model, type, action, serial number, barrel length, manufacturer
    can be confirmed in a Firearms Reference Table. You will be provided
    with a Firearms Reference Table number (FRT), verifier number and
    verifier first and last name. Once you have this information, you can
    proceed with the registration application.
    Is this information still valid/correct? I've come across an unregistered Ruger .22 pistol that I'd like to take possession of legally. The current owner is still very much alive and I do want to cause any issues for them. Is it possible for me to register this pistol without the current owner incurring charges or fines? I already have an RPAL but don't currently own any pistols. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So far as I am aware... I recall some fairly recent threads about this very thing on another forum. I think the CFO's are quite happy to get them back in the system....

    As long as it falls under the restricted classification, you can register it, and make things legal. If it's a prohibited class, they won't register it. No new prohib licenses are being given out period and no new prohib firearms can be registered and legally kept by their owners. You will be ordered to turn it in for destruction.

    Ah yes, the barrel must of course be restricted length. 4.2 inches or greater from the muzzle to the face of the bolt with the action closed.... Or, actually slightly less than 4.2 inches, the law gives a metric measurement that I can't quite recall...

    Not even for 12.7? Pretty sure a co-worker got his this way in the last couple of years.

    From the muzzle to the face of the bolt with the action closed is for a rifle and pistols. Revolver barrel lengths do not include the cylinder.
    12.7 is inherited with serious qualifications regarding who you can inherit from. No uncles, for example. And only stuff made before 1946, so no 4" revolvers or .32 calibres made since then or anything that is not currently registered as prohibited. And the 12.7 exception is a possession only thing too. No buying more.

    True - but I can buy an unlimited number of 12.7-eligible guns and give them to my son. He can even make the payments as long as the transactions go through me.
