Ares has been in Canada for a long time. There have been several prior sources for them.
I have had several discussion with Zshot and suppliers in Hong Kong about Ares and it boils down to right now the folks who run Ares don't understand that not suppling spare parts hurts their business. It's not that airsoft is unknown outside of Asia so that's why their sales are low. It's that the other guys hustle for the business, and as a result they get the $.
I'd like to see better support for Ares in North America since I like what they do. Zshot will take what they read here and in other spots and then condense it down and present it to Ares. And hopefully as a result they will come to an understanding why they should make spare parts available in a timely manner.
Airsoft, where nothing is hurt but feelings.
