just as a post script..

"replica firearm” means any device that is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, a firearm, and that itself is not a firearm, but does not include any such device that is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, an antique firearm;


As I mentioned above .. in 2011 a BC lower court decision ( that has not been appealed to my knowledge) the definition of replica was applied more stringently and the Judge determined that in order to be a replica the item must exactly resemble or resemble with near precision a real firearm both internaly and externaly. Obviously this is a pretty high test.. and would exclude any and all AEGs form being replicas.

As a lower court decision in BC it is not a sweeping precident.. but it is a precident all the same.

( this does not have any effect on CBSA's definition )
