It's not that easy... the exporter in China would have to bribe their export control officials in order to allow the gun to leave China, and even still, there is the risk for their business to be shut down. Manufacture, sales, and ownership of airsoft guns is prohibited in China. Only certain businesses (wargame clubs/fields, for example) get an exemption for ownership and use, but they still can not manufacture nor export legally.
