357 model 19 barrel question
First of all i live in canada here e have rediculous laws about guns. I have a model 19-4 357 magnum that i inherited from my father when he passed away last year which the government has informed me is illegal due to its 4 inch barrel. apparently it has to have a 6 inch barrel to be legal. is there anything i can do to make it legal? can a barrel change be done or is there any way to lengthen it? its been sent to a gun shop who told me that there was no barrel available to change it to and offered to sell it to a collector for $150 dollars. that seems a little low to me as i have done some research and it is in really good condition.
any information , including the name of a reputable gunsmith , would be appreciated as im kinda over a barrel because i cant even have the shop send it back untill its made legal, but i can have it sent to another smith or collector.
