He said they would permit airsoft guns into Canada if the following conditions were met:
1) must shoot under 500 FPS.
2) must have a plastic body
3) must not have any trademarks that match a manufacturer of real firearms
4) must be able to demonstrate that the magazine could not be capable of being used to load real ammunition
5) must have a orange muzzle tip
6) must be declared at the border and a 15% duty paid
7) must be transported in the trunk of the vehicle
He also indicated, indirectly, that the attitude, appearance and "air of responsibility" of the person crossing the border would play a factor.
Ultimately, however, they could still reject an airsoft gun meeting the above criteria. Sole discretion lies with the Customs Officer to make the call.
Note that HE (the border officer) said that, not written in a document by Canada.
Therefore, it holds no weight at all.
