Import issue of GBB, AEG and gears

Moving back to Vancouver from Asia, thinking about bring all my GBB, AEG and gears back, does anyone know what kind of issues or problems I will have?

The guns will most likely get seized. Everything else should be fine.

you might be lucky in suitcasing the items back.

i'm aware of a whole airsoft AK that went to Canada in a suitcase.

was a couple of years ago though.
might be easier than posting back.

You can BUY airsoft guns in Canada, but it's still a major pain to bring them in yourself.
You're better off buying new guns once you get here

With the decade anniversary of 9/11 coming up, that will probably be the worst idea in the world to put an AK into a suitcase and bring it into an airport. The Government will own your asshole for a year.

It's very strange to see a retailer from hong kong suggesting to pass an airsoft gun in a suitcase... Should you know importation rules better than that?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it legal IF it fires between 407-500 fps?

To be precise, it's seven years you will be put on to a red flag list, if you are caught misdeclaring imported goods, failure to declare, or attempting to import prohibited/restricted/controlled items without the appropriate permits and declaration. It will make traveling anywhere out of the country pretty exciting for the next seven years...

This does not include fines/duties/taxes associated with your particular case if you are caught and found guilty of any of the above. Each case is different, and your mileage may vary.
