Why don't you help the guy instead of giving him the spoon feeding
crap.

It would be nice to see that customs thread updated by someone
knowledgeable in this area please.

The only antique replica in airsoft from what I know is KTW Flintlock


UPDATE FROM THE FAQ

Okay, so I can’t import guns. What about parts and accessories?

Yes. The good news is that most parts and accessories, including most magazines, can be successfully imported by individuals without requiring a BFL.
Examples of things you CANNOT import:
* Frames, receivers, and metal bodies
* Shell Magazine capable of holding live rounds with capacity over 5 rounds in centerfire or 10 rounds for pistol magazine
* Airsoft guns that has muzzle velocity of less than 430fps with 0.2g bb and muzzle velocity greater than 840fps with 0.2g bb.

Examples of things you CAN import but will almost guarantee result in holdup of parcel in custom:
* Hand and 40mm grenades that look real
* Suppressors and silencers
* Prohibited-length outer handgun barrels (i.e. USP Compact, Glock 26)
* AEG magazines with fake cartridges (i.e. P90, G36, SG 552 mags)
* Airsoft gun that are capable of shooting 430fps with 0.2g bb but does not shoot over 840fps with 0.2g bb
* Handgun slides


Examples of things you CAN import:
* Magazines for AEGs and GBBs without fake cartridges
* Outer barrels for most guns
* Inner barrels of any type
* 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


NOTE: Possession of body armor in Province of British Colombia is illegal without proper permit.

Examples of Item that is illegal to EXPORT from United States of America without license includes:
* Firearm parts exceed over $100 in value
* Firearm (and parts) that have not pre-approved by the DOD
* Body Armor with NIJ Level III or Level IV (Plate carrier who does not have that capability during export is acceptable)
* Ammunition for centerfire/rimfire firearm (even for dummy rounds)

The landscape may have changed but the import laws haven't. Import laws just got studied by some brainy asc'ers who understand how the system works.

IMO...Even the FAQ thread is a spoon feeding. It's just a place where the information was taken from different sources on the web and condensed in a nice little thread for the new and old members to read. You can find all that information with a quick little google search.

The thing is that more and more people seem to suffer from A.D.D. and can't read past 140 characters. So they ask for an even shorter version so they won't have to strain their brain.

The FAQs are still 100% relevant.

Pretty much everything needs to be condensed to the length of a twitter post of an FB status update for the sake of those who are to lazy to read. Well unfortunately for them that's not really possible. Ok thats not entirely true, its possible but it would be really hard to do and not very detailed.

Airsoft guns that shoot over 430fps are allowed through the border? I would expect that the CBSA would still confiscate it regardless of said rule. I'm sorry, but I'm a little behind on the current legality of airsoft gun importation.

That does cover the jist importation but not the rest of the FAQ, it does get to the point but like I said its not very detailed. I shall do you one better and offer you this rice crispy treat instead of a boring cookie.



Now go do that to the rest of the entire FAQs section.

CBSA dont care if no one has ever ACTUALLY manufactured it as a deadly weapon, it kinda looks like one and they will seize it. You MIGHT get it back if you appealed it properly and found an agent willing to put his neck out there for you, but its doubtful.

Unless you're notorous for using lawyers and suing, they will act like a God
