    Question .40 cal question

    I am wondering if anyone knows of a .40 caliber with a barrel LONGER than 4.1 inches with a factory (non altered) mag of 9 rounds or less? Seems that most full size .40's with a 4.1 + inch barrel have a minimum mag of 10 rds.

    On the other hand, .40 compacts have 6-9 rd mags, but a barrel that is less than 4.1 inches.

    This is the difference between "restricted" (but allowed) and "prohibited" (not allowed) in the country to which our family will be immigrating... MUST have barrel greater than 4.1 in. and a mag of 9 rds of less.

    Any ideas or suggestions?
    Thanks a million,
    Wooley

    If you are moving to Canada, there are certain guns that have the lower mag capacity and longer than factory standard barrels that you won't see on the manufacturers website(s).

    Thanks a bunch. Yes, we are immigrating to Canada. My Glock will not be allowed, therefore I am looking for a 4.1+ inch barrel and lower mag capacity. Any idea where a guy can research and purchase one in the U.S. prior to our move? Sounds like it would be easier for me to import a previously owned, approved (but restricted) handgun, rather than jumping through the hoops and buying one in Canada when we land in Sept.
    Thanks, Wooley

    If you Google "Restricted guns for sale, Canada" you will find dealers listing weapons for sale. Any one of those weapons are legal.

    You can get a 6" barrel for a Glock. I don't know about 6 round magazines however.

    OK, I'm going to say this again...

    THE MAGAZINE LIMIT FOR HANDGUNS IN CANADA IS 10 rounds.

    OK. Glock makes 10 round magazines. Glock makes a 6" barrel for the 9mm and the 40 caliber.

    If you already have a full size Glock all you need to do is:

    1. Order the appropriate magazine.
    2. Order the 6" barrel.
    3. Figure out how to import the weapon into Canada (legally).
