Re: need advice/opinions

I would check with the International Handgun Metallic Silhouette Association in Canada and get in touch with them. There should be someone that can help you out.
I have shot with Canadian shooters every year I have been to Ohio for our International matches and I'm sure they will be happy to help.
That way you can hunt with a handgun,it will just be steel animals ;-)

thanks I will look into that.
Ernie we have 550 yards at range, which is one of the longer ranges around here, with our long range guns we go to the forestry and have shot to 1800 yards, but we can only use handguns at certified ranges thanks

If 550 yards is the furthest you will shoot, a fast twist 6Br will work fine.

Re: need advice/opinions

So I finally got my answers today, talked to the goverment firearms people and they said no problem converting a existing rifle action to a handgun as long as its is done correctly ( you can not chop the existing barrel done) They need to know the barrel manufacture and length,overall firearm length then tehy will issue you a registration certifcate. thanks for the help guys.

I have your regular handcuns 44 mag , 40 s.w. 22lr but never had one like a xp 100 style. like I said open to opinions and advice thanks
In my opinion you are looking at a lot of legal legal to take a registered nonrestricted firearm to a restricted firearm. There are many long barrel restricted firearms you can change the stock on . Buy one.
