Shipping top gas, international?

Does any know if i am able to ship green gas/ top gas from an international retailer to canada? I heard that you can't ship it airmail so i was wondering if it was even possible?

Thanks

Green gas is propane, why not go to your hardware store and pick some up?

To answer your question, no, compressed gases can't be shipped airmail.

+1

You will get more gas for the same price using propane instead of green gas.

Besides, if ordering green gas from an international retailer, it will need to be shipped via surface mail, which means a loooooooong waiting time...

Even with the cost of an AI propane adapter and 100% silicon oil, you're ahead of them game on the first 3pack purchase of 1lb Coleman style tanks. you can fine camp/Coleman propane tanks for $3-5 per tank. Look for sales.

If you really want to get green gas (note to the peanut gallery: some people do still use "green gas"; propane stinks way too much to shoot in my house, specially in winter when I can't open windows) Toronto Airsoft and BuyAirsoft both carry some. There's also a couple of American retailers who carry some and will ship via UPS Ground, which should get to you in about 10 days time.

Drake's got it... but to be a little more specific; if green gas has to be shipped to you, the ONLY way it can be is by UPS ground as it's considered a hazardous material.. there's quite the additional fee for that.
May want to keep that in mind before ordering.

Ohhhh mannn i was using top gas from saph. I found a retailer that sells them for like 5 bucks a can, over here is like 20 bucks for now This is my first time running gbbr, is there much of a performance difference between top gas/ green gas and propane? i know propane smells like fart, other than that will it affect the guns part in any way?

Thanks for all the replies, appreciate it.
