it actually not a news in china any more if i remember correctly 6 month ago chinese custom seize about 20000 airsoft gun at ningbo when the company declare it as "resin craftwork"
as the chinese wepon legislation strictly forbidden any manufacture of airsoft gun or pellet gun or any repleca firearm. maybe even parts too but i am not sure about that!
however no one care because it always has a way to work around it!!
why this one got caught? because OCT 1st is the 60th chinese national day, the police want to show that they are working hard to makethe public more safe!!!
