The prices are KIND OF cheaper then here, but not by a WHOLE lot, just gotta look around and ask =). I brought a Eotech 552 there, costed about $33 CDN, M6x also $33, PEQ15, also $33...LOL, good hunting =)
I just got back from HK a few days ago, and Kwong Wa street was one of my stops. The prices are not as attractive as I thought. I found a G&P Magpul WA-GBBR magazine that was listed at $350 HKD (roughly $44 CAD). The same magazine usually sells for $50-65 in Canada. Not enough of a price difference for me to make any impulse purchases (especially with taxes at the airport/border, and luggage space lost).

I also noticed that I was unable to haggle at all - despite the fact that I only spoke Cantonese at the stores. I couldn't buy anything during my visit.

Is this the same for others?
