Mod 85's and Canada

I was asked if these were legal to own in Canada, as they are technically a fire arm by my understanding.

Any Canadians happen to know if I'm mis-interpretting the rules here?


Seeing as they are basically marketed as training simulators not paintball guns I would feel safe in saying you need a liscence of some sort.

Strange considering:
They were made in Canada (para -ordanance). I saw them in Montreal in the 1980's at a gun shop for $400 cdn.

Para-Ordnance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Para-Ordnance is a Canadian firearms manufacturer founded in Toronto in 1985 by two childhood friends, Ted Szabo and Thanos Polyzos. Szabo was born in Hungary and his family fled the country when the Russians invaded during the Hungarian Revolution in 1956.[1] Polyzos was born in Greece and later immigrated to Canada.[2]

Para-Ordance has a factory in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. The company is estimated to have an annual revenue of over 10 million dollars and employs a staff of 60.[3]

The company originally started out manufacturing sub-machine gun paintball guns, but under the direction of CEO Ted Szabo the company soon transitioned to the manufacturing of handguns.[4]
