Now, moving on. I know that nobody in classifieds will deal with me due to my age, and I will only be able to work with big retailers. The only one that i have found so far that is anywhere near me (I live in Edmonton) is 007 airsoft. I emailed Ken Cheung already, so hopefully I get a response. However, truth be told, his prices seem really steep, so Im looking for an alternative. (My intent was to do this physically in Calgary, as i will be heading to the rockies to golf soon, yay!)

Now I have read a couple posts that have said something about retailers from Asia being reasonably easy to import from. I wanted to know if there is any truth to this. Furthermore, I was looking around on Airsoft GI, and many of their guns had orange tips. If i were to import one of these, would this fail miserably, and if so, why? Don't orange tips designate them as a non-firearm replica?

Any further advice on how I can obtain a decent gun without having to pay double the price would be excellent.

Many thanks,
No one will say that anyone under 18 should get a gun here, but I'll answer your questions anyways?
007 sells the CAS and the regular (toptech) versions, the CAS version is cheaper and uses cheaper, but still pretty nice metal, the toptech version uses the standard metal that G&G toptech guns use; the internals are exactly the same apart from the differing 6.08 and 6.04 inner barrels.
And you can't import full guns or recievers (the part where the action of the gun is) from anywhere, overseas or from the USA. Cansoft guns aren't double the price?
