I'm planning to attend an anime convention in the US around February and am currently looking at bringing an replica Remington MSR with me. I will be flying with Porter airlines and am at a loss about whether it is a good idea to take this with me. Though it is not a real firearm, I'm sure many airline/government officials may mistaken it as the real thing, however, I don't think I can also declare it as a real firearm. I called Porter airlines about it and they said I should be good to go. However, I am also aware of the Canadian replica firearms laws and I'm not too keen to see all my hardwork thrown away. Can anyone shed some light on my situation?
For reference, here is a photo of the MSR I built:
The prop is made up of wood and plastic.
