Since now I know there seems to be an actual "you're fucked" letter, maybe they really are being merciful on me?
It's as much a "hunk of aluminum" as fully automatic M4 receiver is a "hunk of steel."
You're trying to import a replica of a controlled item (the controlled item being the frame.) If it wasn't clear before, here's a re-iteration: replicas are prohibited items. This is why airsoft is so expensive in Canada.
