Both are completely legal in anything.

If you ever find yourself in a fair fight then your tactics suck.

even if I stuck it in my 20p semi auto?
they take the same mags, and that would put me over the 10 round 22LR allowance.

unless I'm missing something, though i had this problem with 10/22 / 77/22 hi cap magazine thingamaling.

TALK!

You should review your firearms code before you need to renew your license next time.  :lol: It's 15 for rimfires. :D

wow!
I can understand it though what with 15 being the usual for tube mags.
Groovy to be proven wrong though :D


That being said I have just talked to one of my mates whose mother has a couple of the 15 shots, and a couple of years ago she took them in to get fixed (lips were giving feed issues) and he DEFINITELY told her (doesn't mean he was right though) that she might have to trade them in for 10 shot ones in the near future.

Either way, very good to know and good to clear up.

Thanks a lot eh.

Might have been more than a "few" years ago.  I remember getting worried that my 15 shot Stirling semi-auto was going to become illegal sometime in the early 1990's.  There was talk that anything greater than 10 rounds would be Ecat but I think it was just confusion and rumor that turned out to be false.

It's not the destination; it's all about the people you meet on the way.

I've been friendly with one of the dudes there for over 10 years now so he'll often give me a better deal, I'll see what he says.

Thanks brother
