What is the difference between possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition and possession of the prohibited weapon?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from R. v. Reda, 2014 ONCJ 458 (CanLII):

[25] In R v. Maddigan 2009 ONCA 269, the possession of the weapon involved a transfer of a weapon and putting it into circulation. The offences were possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition, transportation of prohibited firearm, possession of a prohibited weapon, a drug offence and possession of a firearm while prohibited. I appreciate that the 117.1 offence was made consecutive, but it involved the extra ingredient of putting an illegal firearm into circulation in Canada to those who would make use of it.
