Don't even try it. At least, they'll just seize it. But you can be charged for the attempt of smuggling in a prohibited device.

Just buy from in Canada dude...

"It went through the custom, no problem at all."

Did they check it? (Yellow customs tape on the box) What you did is illegal, and you will be blackmarked if caught and (possibly) charged with importing a prohibited device.

If they didn't check it, what you're saying is "I risked myself and my family address, and I got lucky."

very very lucky, though saying you smuggled a gun from the usa successfully is only going to cause more problems.

should of read FAQ before purchasing but owell

You know some times I wish they were more diligent on checking every thing that came across so we dont get people saying "well I did it once so Ill do it again" or "If he can do it so can I"

Do not do that again, read the FAQ. This hoarse is dead and beaten severely.

First time, you will receive a letter that states that your item is classified as prohibited for importation and that the item has been confiscated by the CBSA. Information and a time line will be given to you if you wish to dispute their decision.
After this your name or address maybe added to a list where they will make sure to check your incoming out of country parcels.

Second time, Same letter as the first, your name or address will definitely be added to some form of watch list. You may receive a letter siting the the laws of importation and a statement asking you to not do it anymore, possibly a fine, possibly jail time.

For the most part the CBSA considers an airsoft gun to be a prohibited device and attempting importation can even land you in jail for minimum of one year if you get caught according to the criminal code.

When crossing the border Failure to declare restricted and prohibited goods may result in penalties of up to $400, permanent seizure of goods and in some cases, criminal prosecution. A record of infractions is kept in the CBSA computer system. If you have an infraction record, you may have issues crossing the border in the future and may have to undergo more detailed examinations.
