No, it's because that item is prohibited. The part that carries the serial number on the real thing is considered "the receiver" in Canada. In Canada, the receiver IS a firearm and is a controlled item.

So if you bring in an airsoft receiver, even a plastic one without trademarks, it will be considered as bringing in a replica firearm, which is strictly prohibited. That's why we can't get metal bodies. It's not because it's metal. It's not because there's trademarks. It's because it's a replica firearm.

Technically, yes. It won't stop customs from seizing it anyways. Although, you can go through the appeal process if it does get seized initially.
