Not a big deal. All of the receivers that are solid and metal are non civilian. Might not seem that big of a deal but getting caught with a rifle that is registered non civilian has a heavy price to pay. You can say good bye to traveling and that puts a flag up for CSIS not to mention you will have your rifle taken away from you and prob will no longer be allowed to even own a cap gun and you could serve time.. Just saying..
It does seem that you have bought a little too much into someones marketing scheme. I suggest you do a little bit more reading on the laws surrounding airsoft. I personally have never dealt with police and black/metal guns, but plenty of people here have and their as good as can be in the laws eyes. It all depends on a few things. Dont ever carry these around in public, opaque or clear it doesnt matter. How you conduct yourself with the police about this, if its explained in very calm and educated manner then you will have nothing to worry about. The most important thing is to make sure no one sees it that shouldn't see it (eg: neighbors, general public, etc...) Carry them around in gun bags/cases, guitar cases, ski bags, something that doesnt scream GUNGUNGUNGUN to the soccer moms.
A good majority of the players here all use full black full metal guns and none of us are heading for jail or restricted in our travels because of our airsoft guns.
