Smile Regulations on import updated?

Hi, I've done the research about the rules in this forum and am aware of the Goldilocks zone of 366-500 being able to import, but most of the posts are 5+ years old.I would like to know if there has been any update/changes on the rules.

Also does anyone know what kind of documentation I'll need to prove the gun is within the legal limit?
I'll be shipping by myself because I'm currently living in Tokyo and will be moving back to Canada soon.

Still in the 366-500 limit area. Needs manufactures documents stating it shoots above 366 fps with 0.20’s and good chance they will test it once landed

Good luck.

To modify a gun to fire the required limit has you breaking the Swords and Firearms Possession Control Law (銃砲刀剣類所持等取締法).

Yup, I'm aware of that. Do you think it'll matter if i modify and then send it back to Canada even as I am not using it on Japan fields? Then again as I'm doing it on Japan soil it is then illegal isn't it?

If you are in possession of a functional airsoft gun that shoots above the limit you're violating the law.

If you choose to break the Japanese law to conform with Canadian import law, that's your own choice.

Published specs for the gun are what they usually consider for FPS. Aftermarket upgrades leaves you open to seizure and losing your gun for months as its sent off for "testing."

And 500fps doesn't apply to airsoft (you're way under the joule limit with .2g)

Not going to break the law of course. It'll just jeopardize my stay in Japan. Thanks for sharing the thoughts. Helps clear my thoughts

A possibility is to stop at Hong Kong for a bit when you move back to Canada. The only rule in HK is that it must not fire 2+ joules. Other than that don't wave them around in public etc.

During this stop in HK, modify your guns to conform with the Canadian firearms laws at a shop such as Redwolf or something, and have them chrono it and have the chrono sheet inside the box.

You read my mind lol. I was thinking of going back to visit my family in Hong Kong and do as you said. Guess I'll have to take that route then
