Your pretty new to airsoft but this issue is not.
Airsoft in Canada has and always will always carry a markup. Usually around the 100% mark when compared to the US, but in some cases that can fluctuate between 50% and all the way up to 750% in some rare cases.
The reason? because the retailers can, simple as that. Get used to it until Canadian Importation laws surrounding airsoft change if ever. Also expect considering the quality of build of this rifle I think its set at a fair price.
