It's usually more cost effective to sell the rifle and build a pistol off of a none designated receiver(savage target action) or buy a XP off of gunbroker.
    Not hyjacking but I have a question. I live in NY no SBRs allowed but they sell bolt action pistols, as pistols. So I guess I could not convert a rifle here I would have to buy a whole new gun? Is that right?

    Does it meet the OA length requirement to still be a legal rifle? Like was posted before I believe there is a barrel length AND OA length requirement.

    Hello lazylabs In Canada restricted firearm means: has a barrel less than 470mm in length
    a firearm that is designed or adapted to be fired when reduced to a length of less than 660 mm by folding,telescoping or otherwise. Taken from Canadian Firearms Safety Course Student Handbook. So you are right their is a OA length requirement.Thanks have a good day.brad
