On a case-by-case basis and it has nothing to do with the Firearms Act.

The real factor in determining legality seems to be intent. If your intent is to own, use, or sell Airsoft guns for the purpose of playing Airsoft, then it is perfectly legal. Conversely, if you use one of the above-mentioned guns as theatrical replicas; you would be breaking the law.
Please stop, you're dispensing misinformation.
