Swapping lower receiver

Hey guys, I have someone that wants to sell me an AEG but the lower receiver is a solid colour.
If I bought a tinted receiver and swapped it, would this make it legal?

Thanks

HUH? It is not illegal to purchase imitation firearms .... the clear receiver is an import restriction to ensure that the item can be imported.

buy the gun.. and forget the clear receiver junk

If the gun is in Canada already it doesn't matter... You only need clear lower receivers to IMPORT airsoft guns into Canada. Once they're in you can do whatever to them since they're technically "Uncontrolled Firearms".

Whether there is a clear/tinted/black receiver on it or not, it is still not safe to expose it in public or anywhere else where the public may see it (including back yards.). Just be safe, treat it as a real firearm.
