Mailing airsoft guns across canada?

What is the best way to mail a gbb or an aeg to a person across canada? I plan on selling a couple of guns in the classified and I was wondering what would be the best approach to mailing them if they sell?

For pistols Express Post prepaid envelopes usually work well. For rifles regular parcel is good.

Make sure they're insured and that there is a signature for receipt to protect yourself.

I find it's best to give folks 2 quotes, regular parcel and then a faster option.

In a box, with bubble wrap. Insurance always just in case.
Tape the corners up just so nothing "happens" to slip through them

Better safe then sorry.

And of course it goes without saying, discreet packaging.

So would it be ok to send the the aeg in its original box, just as long as it is covered up? Or is it best to use my own box?

I like flipping the cover of the original box inside out (so the brown is on the outside and artwork on the inside) and wrapping the whole thing in brown shipping paper or something (so labels aren't affixed to the original box).

But some guns have minimal packaging (read "unsuitable for shipping") so I'll re-pack them in bubble wrap/Styrofoam peanuts/whatever.

This reminds me sth stupid but funny I done once:

One day I need to send a parcel, I found a cardboard box for a coldsteel knife, fits perfectly for the item I want to send.

It is not very good to mail a box with a vicious-looking knife picture on it, so I turned the box inside out, AND wrapped the whole box with duct tape so it do not fall apart.

Then I realized, what the hell, if I am wrapping the box with duct tape, what's the point for turning the box inside out at first? :x:
