I have a question about the Canadian antique handgun laws. In the link posted under Handguns it basically says pre-1898 handguns that do not fire the specific calibres of rim-fire & center-fire cartridges listed are considered antiques. Before that, at the top, in general it says pre-1898 guns designed not to fire rim-fire & cartridges-fire ammunitions are antiques. Does this mean pre-1898 cap & ball handguns are antiques?

If memory serves me correct, any handgun that does not fire readily available and currently manufactured ammunition and made before the year listed is no longer considered a firearm. Cap and ball handguns are still a restricted weapon and need to be registered and used only at approved ranges.
