I'm not sure the firing group would work, then the bolt catch assembly is different. Magna hammer strike the lower portion of the bolt catch group which sends a pin forward to hit the gas release. Basically if you want to convert it into a firearms, you're gonna have to:
a) get a prime receiver (which is alot more expensive then AR-15 receiver in Canada (without import fee)
b) get the bolt catch group converted, this is gonna be hard since there's more cutouts in magna system towards the magazine area
c) some how get the firing group in
d) install ar-15 upper.
If it is possible to install any real parts into an airsoft gun to make it fire, then said airsoft gun would be prohibited. Replica status doesn't apply in that case. If I can take a lower parts kit (not controlled), install it in a GBBR lower, install a real carrier group (even with minor mods), and a real upper, that base GBBR would be prohibited and would be a huge problem for anyone who owns one. This was my question, which nobody on here is able (or willing) to answer. None of the parts I list is controlled, so getting them is easy as pie. If I had a GBBR in my hands, I could tell you within a matter of minutes if it's possible. If it is, look out, legal troubles will abound.

You are wrong. Any gun designed to be full auto is prohibited in Canada, converted auto is a class of prohibited all it's own. The gun must be designed and constructed to be semi-auto only, no "factory conversions" are allowed. This is the problem right now with VZ-58 and Type-97 classification in Canada.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
