Can a hunting rifle be taken to Canada equipted with a MilDot scope?
If not, how am I to hunt? Maybe a promise to not use that function of the reticle!
22 CFR 121 (121.1 (F) ) I see Riflescopes manufactured to military specifications... BUT there is also a section in the NOTE: that states "This category does not cover riflescopes and sighting devices that are not manufactured to military specifications." I take "category" to mean Part 121 United States Munitions List.
The "near truth"
may be at work here Ian... I think what is being officially states is that a riflescope (complete unit) used by the U. S. military and built to U. S. Military specs can't be exported. Hell... the military has all types of reticles in their scopes...duplex, dot, yada, yada, yada... we couldn't export anything with a reticle. Maybe someone got confused with MIL and thought Military? Where do off shore scope manufacturers make their Mil Dots?
Someone probably knee-jerked this thing and it'll rectify itself with a little push.
