    Eff that. I'd buy them all if I could. Unfortunately my bank account says maybe just one.

    So after some reading for the cz858 specifically, the little square window in front of the receiver if it's got a proof stamp and anything above 06 its "easily converted".
    Insert signature here

    Dumber than that. The early ones were all made from receivers out of a bin that were never made into rifles. Some of the later ones were made into rifles, taken apart, then reassembled into CZ 858s. They're identical mechanically.

    Allegedly. IIRC, the RCMP never released proof of that. CZ denied it.
    Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.

    It's based on more area being milled off where the proof stamp is, isn't it? Irrefutable evidence, that.

    You'll have to go the RCMP web page and find their first information bulletin on this...some front sights had a small window, some had a large window. The RCMP made a whole bunch of assumptions on parts assembled as whole rifles as well.
    Regardless of how the rifle came to be the firearms act already says that it's an offence to convert a gun to full auto...nothing about how much or how little effort it takes to do so which was part of the RCMP's initial response.
    "It is an absolute truism that law-abiding, armed citizens pose no threat to other law-abiding citizens."

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".
