    M1 Garand 5 shot clips

    why are these so rare in Canada? Does anyone hunt with their M1 Garand? Here in Nova Scotia we must have a 5 shot clip. There is no way around it. But yet nobody is willing to import them. Seems like a weird rock and hard place. I was going to order one from Brownells but they want $34 USD for just the shipping for a single en bloc. Not really at that point of desperation yet.

    Anyone hunting with their Garand? What do you do?

    Yes i tried to make one and snapped it off. Will probably keep trying like a tard until i break enough of them to validate the $34 US shipping to just order one.

    There's all sorts of other brownells goodies I'd be adding to that order to make it worth it

    There are some guides online as well that show how to concert an 8 shot clip into a 5 shot with some work.

    "...so rare in Canada..." Mostly because the M1 Rifle is exempt, by name, from the silly mag capacity law. And not all Provinces require 5 rounds only for hunting. Find out of using an 8 round with only 5 loaded is acceptable. Use either a wood or plastic dowel.
    However, Gunparts, Stateside wants $8.20US(~ $10.73Cdn) each for 5 round clips. Mind you, they also have a $14.95US(~ $20.56Cdn) shipping charge up to $9.99 total value. Total Cdn. is $31.29Cdn so they're not much better. An M1 is a beast to haul around hunting anyway.
    Try Epp's and Western Gun Parts.
    Making 'em? Requires a propane torch, a rotary tool, a bunch of DP cartridges(load 5 rounds with no powder or primer) and some of that patience everybody keeps talking about. The thing about heating what amounts to a spring red hot is that it takes out the temper. Not heating is why your's broke though.

    NOVA SCOTIA HUNTING & FURHARVESTING SUMMARY OF REGULATIONS
    Prohibited Weapons and Ammunition

    No person shall possess at any time in wildlife habitat;
    •a swivel or spring gun;
    •a shotgun greater than 10 gauge;
    •a device designed to deaden the sound of the report of a firearm;
    a magazine for a semi-automatic centre fire firearm which is capable
    of containing more than 5 rounds of ammunition
    .


    So from what it sounds like, it's not only illegal to hunt with a magazine that can hold more than 5 rounds (even if federally legal to do so), you can't even take one to go shooting on crown land....

    That last bolded one says no hunting in NS with an M1 Rifle at all. The operative word being "capable". Strictly speaking a high priced 5 round clip won't make any difference. The rifle is still capable of containing 8.
    "...shooting on crown land..." Then the semantics will be about Federal vs Provincial Crown land. snicker.

    Nitpicking here, but the M1 enbloc is not a magazine.....but I'm unsure how the fish cops would interpret that....

    The law states a magazine containing more than 5 rounds, not the firearm itself. Meaning a pinned at 5 magazine would be legal, but only loading 5 rounds into a "pistol" magazine would not.

    Most laws are written to state "Magazine or Clip". My guess is the term is interchangeable.
