I met a Sig rep at Shotshow in Febuary. They licensed their trademark for the 226 to KJW and the 552 to TM.

Importing through proper channels for law enforcement training is not a new thing. Many Canadian law enforcement suppliers have been doing this for some time. The sticky issue is when prohibited devices are taken from a law enforcement channel and sold to non LE.

The Firearms act classifies airsoft transfer as a prohibited activity, but it's been exempted from penalty on some strange wording. While this makes conviction messy, it would not convince a magistrate that no laws have been broken. I rather doubt that your employer really wants to risk their trust agreements to broker actual destructive devices to bring in some toy guns for wider sale. Tread very carefully.
