More on autos and barrel length

Guns that "look mean" are not allowed in Canada. Even toy guns and soft air guns that look too much like the real thing. I believe M16 style rifles are legal, but you'd best check before you go. The Canadians are very sensitive about guns that they think might be used for terrorism or crimes. Remember, the customs agent has the final say regardless of what you are told by ranking Canadian authorities. Frankly,I wouldn't take a chance. That 16.5 inch barrel won't cut it. You'll need the minimum 18.5 (I believe) inches. Even then, this better be a factory barrel. If it's been altered they won't admit the gun. I strongly advise you to stick with a standard 12-ga. slug gun or one of the Marlin guide guns.
