Importation Laws on items

I have seen a list of items that can and can't be purchased and imported into the country, YET I can't find it now! Could someone enlighten me on them, I just wanted to clarify a couple items if it is even worth/legal to buy and bring back when I hit the US for some shopping in the summer.

I am not familiar with airsoft.

What my question is, does the element of surprise work on a typical airsoft match?

I didn't even know we had one of those haha thanks!

For you peoples who couldn't find it originally here's what I was talking about:

Examples of things you CANNOT import:

AEG magazines with fake cartridges (i.e. P90, G36, SG 552 mags)
Frames, receivers, and metal bodies
Suppressors and silencers
Prohibited-length outer handgun barrels (i.e. USP Compact, Glock 26)
Hand and 40mm grenades that look real

Examples of things you CAN import:

Magazines for AEGs and GBBs without fake cartridges
Outer barrels for most guns
Inner barrels of any type
Handgun slides
Flash suppressors
Scopes, red dot sights, iron sights, lasers
Rail systems and scope mounts
Springs, bushings, gears, pistons, or other gearbox parts
Batteries, BBs, loading tools
Helmets, goggles, body armor, tactical vests, camouflage

Looks like I'll be purchasing an inner barrel and Red dot while I'm down there.

Not always true anymore. If you have it enter in Vancouver its usally airsoft-more friendly compared to Montreal which like to hold on to everything.

Legally speaking you cannot import:
Receiver, or Full non-transparent receiver gun.

You can technically import:
Silencer
Magazine, whether it has fake bullets or not.
prohibited length of outer barrel
40mm shells

Now here's the tricky part, you're gonna have to appeal it, or better convince the cbsa agent that it is not for firearm.

Somewhere I saw importing sights is illegal, but I mean then again aemricans are weird. Last time I went they said all videos game on sale wouldn't work on canadian consoles, yet our countries both share the same media format.

Sights are illegal to export due to ITAR

I've always had a 100% success rate importing silencers.

True. As long as you ask the seller to unscrew it, then its just a metal tube with a thread adaptor. Also they check for the chambers in the silencers to see if will suppress the report of a firearm.

I never made that connection to my username when I typed that TBH. That statement isn't actually ironic, it's the opposite of that actually. If I had a 0% success rate importing silencers (the opposite of what's to be expected), then that would be ironic. Kinda like a porn star moving to the Virgins Islands, that'll be ironic.

I thought the part of the receiver with the serial number is not allowed but the other half is. I've heard mixed opinion with this part for importation. Anyone care to clarify?

Yess. The part where the serial number would be on a real wepon is not allowed. In an M4 its the lower reciever. In an MP5 its the upper. AK Lower.. etc
