A bit patronizing yourself safx, are you a customs agent ? lol Anyway I get a good sense of how things goes now from Brian and you so indeed had I known before, I would have waited for a notice before doing anything.
I have been ordering this kinda stuff a bunch of times and it's the first time anything got seized up, mistakingly or not. Last order from airsoftglobal using the same FedEx service, everything got here in 3 days AND it had been open and inspected by customs.
I got advice from a friend that has been in the airsoft game for 10 years and he did tell me calling up the agent worked sometimes, and sometime not. All depends on how reasonable that person is at the other end.
