the rest of the replies will be a mix of "buy in Canada it'll be the same price after tax n shipping" and "just buy in Canada and support local business"
Lemme do a quick for ya calculation

Pro-Win WA M4 Gas Magazine:
$55USD from Ehobby
$120CDN+~$15CDN from Canada Retailer

Cost for EMS (most expensive) is around $30, so its around $90 by the time it gets here so its about 1/4 the cost of retailer. I hate to say it but retailers in Canada are putting insane markups as if it were a restricted item. Most (not all) are simply too greedy, so I just refuse to deal with em. Selling an ACM magazine at a G&P/Marui price is unacceptable.
