Canada shipping question.

Has anyone ever dealt with eHobby Asia before? Is it possible to ship to Ontario?

eHobby is great. I have heard that they have been slower than 1-1.5 days of posting items before, but after my third order from them, I have nothing bad to say about their efficiency. I usually get orders 4-5 days at my door (in BC) after paying eHobby. Note that they charge quite a bit for shipping, as compared to other HK retailers.

Laugh or not, but I did.

However, I've found that 1 live person can give you more valuable(!) info than any reviews.

I just dealt with them last month with a huge order ~$400USD. I got my order exactly 1 week from the day I had paid them. Yes processing does that longer than most but if they got something you want then what can you do. I paid for express shipping so my shipping cost was like $95US but I'm sure that shipping cost included UPS brokage fees, because when I got my order I paid a very small customs TAX. Only thing I say that sucks is the one of my item is on back order right now, but on ordering it said "In Stock". But their customer service is great and will notify and ship the item when back in store. So far my experience has been pretty good with them.

Remember: Don't try to order anything that is restricted or not allowed. Being an idiot will get you in trouble with customs.

Heh, isn't EVERY type of airsoft is restricted? Or are there some unwritten rules involved?

Parts and gear isn't restricted. This includes things like hop up rubbers and chambers, barrels, gears, cylinders and pistons, springs, vests, holsters, lights and battery boxes, and most externals (NO RECEIVERS! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED).

No receivers (gun bodies) Pistol frames, Grenade launchers, silencers, and magazines with fake rounds in them.

Those are the big ones, theres a few other small things, but avoid that list and you should be okay.

Even if you have nothing restricted, customs can still grab your package, you can dispute it, and as long as there is nothing restricted, you will get it eventually (can take months).

There are some nice advantages to buying in country.

I've only ordered from them once, they're not bad but I've come to mainly order from Redwolf. My order would have been at my door in 4 days if it wasn't stuck at the boarder pending inspection for over a month but I don't blame them for it, in fact I praise them for the good comms I had with them regarding my shipment though it was a lot of back and forth between customs and Ehobby.

Okay thank you all for all that juicy advice you gave me, but one last question (hopefully XD): Are there any other airsoft retailers in Canada besides Mach1 and 007, that sell airsoft weaponry (not just parts and gear, mind you)?

There are plenty. Some more reputable than others. There are many retailers available through this websites retail section as well.

Here are a couple more online retailers.
