C7 rifle made in Canada by Dieamco/Colt Canada

Hello,

Please find pictures of my C7 rifle built with Canadian made parts by Diemaco/Colt Canada that I built from a semi-auto lower receiver from Diemaco/Colt Canada. The only difference with mime and the one used by the Canadian Armed Forces is the Auto selection is missing due to Canadian Gun Law. My rifle C7 looks like the first production starting in 1985. The NATO stock number for the real C7A1 is 1005-21-898-7044. The rear sight for this rifle is a flip-type two apertures and the front sight is a round post.

Physical data:

Weight with empty magazine and sling 8 lbs

Lenght with normal buttstock 39.37 in


Barrel data:

Length with compensator 21 in

Length barrel only 20 in

Calibre 5,56 mm NATO



Rifling particulars:

Number of grooves 6

Pitch of rifling 1 turn in 7 in

Direction of twist right hand

Like the Maple Leaf logo and everything about this rifle. Meet somewhere between the U.P. of Michigan and Canadian border on Lake Superior this winter on snowmobiles like some prohibition Era bootleggers with a load of Canadian Club? So many ice climbers running the north shore of the U.P. on snowmobiles sure it will work out just fine till a Border Patrol drone picks up the heat signatures of a north and south bound machine running toward same point somewhere narrow and shallow the icebreakers don't run. ;-)

Nice rifle sir!

Not sure if it would be profitable enough for a taker. Mexican cartels and Hell’s Angels are making much more $$$ bringing Chinese imported Fentanyl across our borders.... and the process is significantly easier than your suggestion.... less effort and significantly less expensive than smuggling heroin across the Mexican border or waterways.

I remember reading that the Canadian Armed Forces originally wanted to use the Colt H-Bar barrel, but Colt wouldn't allow the H-Bar barrel to be produced in Canada.

In the book of R. Blake Steven and Edward C. Ezell "The Black Rifle - M16 Retrospective" page 369 mentioned this fact that Canada proposed a more conventional heavy barrel but Colt refused to approved.

In first set of pictures noticed barrel extension is an M4 but upper is a rifle setup. Is that the way the Canadian military does it? Would assume they use M4 extension with M4 upper of rifle extension with rifle upper.

The C7 rifle has the similar dimension as the M16A2 including the "controversial heavy-in-the-wrong-place" profile 20" barrel. The is no relation at all with the M4.

The 1st of May 2020, is a very sad day for Canadian shooters and collectors. Government of Canada decided to prohibited more weapons including the AR-15 family. See the links:
https://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/firear...ms-and-devices
http://gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p2/2020/2...ors96-eng.html
I can keep for now, but I cannot go to the range or sale to others gun collectors. In two years the Government of Canada will give more information on the buy-back program and grandfathering regime for the newly prohibited firearms and devices.

What backup iron sight is that in front of the Elcan? I might put that setup on my FN A4 rifle with the Elcan OS4X.

Interesting that Canada uses the collapsible stock on a full size rifle. I much prefer a full 20 in tube also. Not a carbine fan.

Firstly, so sorry to hear of Friday's asshole ban by a tyrannical demented narcissistic sock boy child king. Fight it with all your might, and give them nothing but attitude. Another reason why I could never live so oppressed ever again, and glad I left when I did, some 25 yrs back.

Here is a 100% Colt Canada LEM4, surplussed off by a USPD, a former NFA gun, de-registered with a A2X flash suppressor perm attached to bring the bbl length to 16.1in.

These complete original Colt Canada's in this export configuration are rare down here, and about 4 yrs ago, I paid $1850 for it.

Fore-stock is standard KAC multi rail type.

Elcan Wildcat is an early 1993 vintage.

Sling, US nylon type.

Bayonet is a current Canadian Eickhorn contracted C7A2 early type, serial numbered.

Green sticker on the mag well is an Australian RAEME maintenance sticker which has the mm/yy for it's next inspection. I consider this carbine a working tool, as it's shot often, hence the maintenance reminder.

Background is an Australian DPCU poncho liner.

And just like that Canada folds like a wet paper sack? What a disgrace. You and your countrymen need to put those arms into action, put your foot down, and declare "NO MORE". Freedom isn't pretty, easy, or free.
Your douche bag leader admits the shooter broke a law to do what he did so how does one logically conclude passing more laws will prevent it in the future? Let's see, stop law breakers by punishing law abiders. Yeah, that's it.
Nice rifles you have there, be a shame to throw them away for pennies and submit to the pussy assed "gov't".

As goes Canada .... may go the US! Given the political atmosphere in the US regarding firearms .... not to mention what could happen after the next election, I would be more concerned about what can be done to deal with increasing tyranny here rather the situation in the frozen North!
