New restrictions on .22 magazines in Canada????

I tried to buy a 25 rnd. magazine for my 10/22 the other day and was told the US government was no longer allowing them to be shipped to Canada. Apperently they're not illegal to use or own they're just impossible to buy. I did a search on the internet about this and turned up nothing. I was able to find a store that had some and knew nothing about this and I bought 2 steel lips magazines.
What is all this about????
Has anyone else ran into this?

thanks

The us government has put so many export regs. on firearm related parts that US/Can. stores are just not stocking anything. It isn't worth the price of export permits to ship them up here. Try brownells. I am told by friends that as long as you stay under $100.00 they are allowed to ship you the parts without all the permit fees.

There's nothing illegal about it - unless you put it in a semi-auto. Then it's illegal (max 5 rds 4 in the mag, 1 in chamber). There might be a provincial law, but no federal law about that.

for a rim fire there is no limit on the magazine size, they're just getting harder to get apperently, so I ordered 2 more 25 round magazines from Wholesale while I still can.

I just ordered two 30 round clips for my .22 Rem 597 semi auto and had no problems getting them through the local gun store. There are a lot of clips they stock for .22 models. Maybe if you are still looking, try to give them a call at The Powder Keg in Kamloops- 250-554-3425.
