That came up just a few days ago. The CBSA is ignorant enough that they'll stop and seize anything large and gun-looking, so the issue is really in arguing that your item is not a replica firearm. The problem with the M41A is that there's a Thompson underneath the hood, a fact that's pretty readily available to anyone Googling or looking at the rifle closely, making it difficult to argue that it's not a replica firearm. Finally, if you strip all the externals off, you've got most of a Thompson.
