Importing legal replacement parts from HK using TNT

Hey people,
So the story is, I'm importing some replacement pistol slides, mp5 interiors, buttstock, etc becuz my sister picked up my package last month then left it in a mall....so I needed new ones

Anyways, I know all these parts are legal to be imported in Canada(I know lowers are the banned ones so I ain't even gonna try on that) but I don't know if TNT is permitted to bring these in. I know FedEx isn't allowed and will end up package stopped then returned. Does anyone know what will happen with TNT?

That's an odd choice of carrier, any reason in particular you want to go with them?

You should contact TNT and find out directly as opposed to relying on second hand info.

U mean good to go or got to go LOL(big difference)
Oh I bought from UNCOMPANY. I forgot they don't exercise the best choices when it comes to shipping these.

Another side inquiry: I know lower receivers aren't allowed, but Howbout full metal upper mp5 receiver? I saw lotsa cansoft with full metal uppers and stampings but transparent lowers. It's just a question in the back of my mind that I never had answer to

The upper is restricted on the MP5 family. Rule of thumb is the part of the receiver with the serial number on the real item is the prohibited part.

As for UNCompany, last time I dealt with them I went with EMT, is passes into the hands of Canada Post at the border, simpler if sometimes incompetent carrier.

UNC's website looks like a horse took a dump on a geocities page... but business with them is smooth.

TNT will broker rape you. You don't pay at the door but you get a nice letter in a few weeks.

These notices also have the annoying tendancy of not getting delivered; I had a loan fumbled for a few days because I had an outstanding UPS account. 180 day overdue bills are a freakin' bad surprise, especially for trivial sums (mine was ~12$).

Fedex will deliver airsoft parts just fine.

DO NOT ORDER AN MP5 UPPER.

EDIT: OH DEAR LORD I JUST CLICKED ON THAT GEOCITIES-IZER LINK.
