Looking for an FN rifle, dewatted/deactivated prefered, for display. Registered FN is OK, as it will be dewatted. Ideally an already converted to a "Canadian" dewat copy of a British/Australian L1A1 or Indian Ishapore FN1A1. Any leads appreciated. Will purchase or trade. It must already be in CANADA. Thanks in advance.

What a crying shame to deactivate a C1.
It's semi-auto ... isn't it possible to own one without welding it up and destroying it?

Semi auto yes, but it's also prohibited and can only be owned by those who were lucky enough to be grandfathered with a prohib license which is not that many people.
