Where the hell is BuyAirsoft getting Full Metal guns?

I was just looking around on BuyAirsoft.ca, and I notice that they've got "full metal" and "full black" guns for sale now. My understanding was that only Mach1 and some other site I cannot recall the name of had been permitted to import full colour/metal guns. Where the hell are Buyairsoft getting them?

The best question to ask;

Are the G&G full metal/full black guns worth the 300-500 price tag?(compared to TM or any other higher end brand)

Yes, however there are only a few who are getting them in legally. CAS bought the buyairsoft website, so CAS is their distributor. CAS so far has only managed in wholesale of half clear guns, so how they're getting full metal guns is a mystery, since there are no G&G metal guns on the list of allowable full metal guns for import.

No such thing as a permit.

First off, if you bother reading the descriptions, you'll notice those "full black" guns are still plastic, not "omfg full metal."

Secondly how they're getting full black guns legally isn't much of a mystery for anyone who's been paying attention.

Okay looks like they do have full metal (thanks Love and Brayden for pointing it out)

But there still isn't any mystery: just like Safesoft was able to work out a deal with the manufacturers they have a working relationship with, no doubt CAS was able to do the same with theirs and managed to get a line of products which met "Canadian rules."

The receivers are stamped "6mm Pellet", and in the beginning they were provided seperately alongside the clear gun, with an "Upgrade Spring" that noted "Warranty void if spring is installed".

Hmm.

No problem drake.

It's still cool to see metal black guns on the net in canada, but it worries me much more.

I wouldn't be much more worried. They're still out of the price range of your average 14 year old fucktard.

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

I don't agree with you Nooblord... I've had the top line G&G guns and there amazing guns, never had issues with breaking.

The only problem CAS guns had were the cheap clear bodies the would mostly come broken from Factory.

Minus that G&G Guns in FMU version are AMAZING, and I stand by them.

G&G is not CAS. while I too think G&G has some great products I do not care for CAS one bit. There are also members here who would argue that CAS has always owned buyairsoft.
