newbie to airsoft

Good day.

last fall I played my very first paintball and had a blast and I thought it would be a good idea to be involved in a similar sport but instead of paintball, go into airsoft. so last december, on ebay, I bought an marui M4 RIS. I thought a got a pretty good deal until 2 days ago when I received the letter from CBSA.

long story short, I'm just gonna let them destroy the gun instead of going through the hoops and just let the experience serve as a valuable lesson for me. I didn't realize that getting into the sport and getting set involves complexities such as this.

I'm pretty experienced with guns and have owned a variety of them. I just wished I have taken the time to research more on the sport before doing the purchase.

anyway, hopefully by joining the forums, I'd gain valuable knowledge to better prepare me for it.

At least you're chalking it up to a learning experience and not going to bitch about it.

I think there also may be the option of returning it to the sender and see if you can get a refund of some sort (say less a 15% restocking fee or something) even if you take a hit on restocking at least you get some money back.

there is actually, but there are lots of things to do. 1st is to find a bonded courier willing to ship it back to the seller. i don't even have a clue where to start. they probably charge an arm and a leg to do it too so I don't know if it's even worth it.

anybody here tried to return a gun seized by CBSA and successfully done it?
