Ok, that's the wrong attitude. Your customs officials are doing their jobs, and they're not being slack. However, your laws allow for a little bit of interpretation on the matter; let's just be glad that they may continue to interpret in a favorable manner on a few items. Again, something is better than nothing.

All airsoft guns transported and sold in the US must, by Federal law, have a blaze orange muzzle tip in place. Thus, any gun purchased from the US will have one.

Of course not. Let's be real, here. He let us take copious notes while he was talking, but there's no way he was going to give us anything affirming it in writing.

Remember what we're dealing with here. This is a very small grey area in your laws. Open entirely to their interpretation. To write it down, would be for this man to permanently decide on a matter of law....hardly his job or responsibility. Let's just be glad that they've chosen to be somewhat reasonable about this "grey area" and may permit a tiny segment of AEG's into your country.
