A) 1 round in chambered and 4 in the mag
B) Empty chamber and 5 rounds in the mag

And this doesn't just stand for restricted rifles. This law applies to every rifle in Canada. I can go buy a un-restricted M14 and my mags must be pinned to 5 rounds maximum capacity.

As for airsoft being restricted or illegal. The answer is no. However, Canada Customs has taken it upon themselves to seize such Items they see as being "illegal". Basically Canada Customs may seize and incinerate airsoft items at the persons expense. That's just the way it is.

It's being argued to the nine's that airsoft guns are replica firearms and i'm not getting into the whole char-broiled flame fest that is the legal standpoint of airsoft. The fact remains that it is strongly discouraged to even attempt importing your guns. It may cost you lots of money
Technically not all rifles...

.22lr is the exception. You can have as many you want in the magazine. You can get a drum mag if your heart desires for your 10/22... Just thought I'd be the smartass to point that out.
