Answers for AK-47

hi folks! without taking much of your time. I want to use this opportunity to ask if AK-47 is categorized under AR -Rifles? secondly, can an AK-47 be used for home defense? and finally, in the process of finding more information about AK-47, I found this particular site where they made general categorization of AK-47 scopes. If I may ask, folks, please is there any best scope for an AK-47?

In Canada the AK or any firearm syimare to it is banned from ownership unless it was owned at the time of the ban and you have a Prohibited permit for them or you are a dealer who has the paperwork to own them ..Even the 22lr clones are banned

You can own a VZ58 the China Type 81 and a few of the Valmat clones ..I think also some of the SKS rifles that take AK mags are not banned

You can only use a 5 round mag unless you manged to find a pistil marked 10 round mag which for the non VZ58 dont existe up there

Each gun will need a different scope and scopes will depend on what you want to do

As far as HD ..Up north having a gun just handy ready to go not in a safe is not legaly and it can be tricky to use a gun for SD so ask a lawyer and the law

Double so if it is restrictive class gun like a under 18inch barrel model or handgun or rifle

Move to US and you can buy a few AKs for your home defense. When you are tired of AKs, move back to Canada and enjoy shooting cheap Norinco M14s and SKSs!

Last I looked also banned as it is like a AK action ..If it has a AK action or looks like a AK it will banned even if some cheep 22lr plinker

That said the Turky made AR15ish shotguns are ok up there but that is it

Now that said I see Norinco is making a M1A rifle that takes AK mags that could be the ticky

Yeah as long as they dont randomly ban it again lol

But yeah the new legal Sig and the Type 81 Norinco are the two cool Akish guns they can get even if they only get 5 round mags

Why buy and AK when you have access to the FAMAE or sig 550 black special? Something most US gun owners only dream about owning
