Here is the trick...
Replicas are prohibited devices.. you need a license to import or export them.
Import means come from another country with them, export means leave Canada with them.
Mostly the issue crops up on the import end... but they could be seized in either direction.
While in Canada replica firearms are the **only** prohibited device that can be owned and transported without a license by people over 18. But again.. only people licensed to trade in them can import or export them.
Anything that looks like a firearm but is not a firearm in the eyes of the law could be deemed a replica.
Fact is you can travel easier with real firearms than with replicas as long as they are legaly owned and registered.
