Airsplat shipping

Hey,

im interested in airsoft and have been looking into it for a while and ive decided to buy a airsoft gun so i looked around at online stores and ive heard airspat has the best prices and is the number 1 online store but i live in Canada and ive asked around a bit and 80% of people say its great shipping it over the border and 20% say they wouldn't trust it. im asking any one that knows or has expierence shipping from them over the border if someone can answer this i would be so greatfull.Also the reason i want to buy from the states is that its so much cheaper for the same guns Canada is just over my budget. well thanks!

Houses are alot cheaper in some states down there, will you buy one of those because the Canadian housing market is "over your budget"? :P

99% of airsoft guns coming out of the USA are "replica firearms", which are prohibited from import and sale in Canada. You will have to buy from a reputable Canadian dealer to keep things easy and legal.

Due to the nature of airsoft guns in Canada its not advisable to attempt to import one on your own unless you fully understand how the Canada border services agency views airsoft guns. The prices of airsoft in Canada are the way they are for many various reasons that reflect the costs of importation, taxes, tariff and freight.

As an individual it is not recommend to attempt an airsoft gun from outside the country due to the fact that it stands a very high risk of confiscation. Please review the information stickies available in our frequently asked questions section and our newbie tank to deeper explanations. Regardless what a out of country retailer tells you just remember that once they have your money and ship your parcel, they could care less if it gets seized and will not give you a refund.
