Importing Guns

I know... most of you are just going to say it won't make it through customs.. but don't say that. But all I wanted to import was a M1911- 265 FPS (.12g BB). http://www.airsplat.com/Items/AP-CYMA-5992.htm

Classification of Airsoft Guns

1. The purpose of this notice is to advise of changes affecting the classification of 6mm calibre airsoft guns.

2. Section 2 of the Criminal Code defines a firearm as “a barrelled weapon from which any shot, bullet or other projectile can be discharged and that is capable of causing serious bodily injury or death to a person, and includes any frame or receiver of such a barrelled weapon, as well as anything that can be adapted for use as a firearm”.

3. As outlined in Memorandum D19-13-2, Importing and Exporting Firearms, Weapons and Devices, it was previously established that an airsoft gun, firing a .22g 6mm plastic pellet, must have a muzzle velocity in excess of 124 m/s (407 fps), in order to be considered a firearm.

4. Based on the latest research, it is now established that the muzzle velocity at which a .20g 6mm plastic airsoft projectile is capable of causing serious bodily injury is 111.6 m/s (366 fps).

5. Airsoft guns, firing a .20g 6mm plastic pellet, with a muzzle velocity above 111.6 m/s (366 fps), will be classified as firearms. Please refer to D19-13-2 for the import requirements of low muzzle velocity firearms, including low muzzle velocity “uncontrolled” firearms.

6. If an airsoft gun, firing a .20g 6mm plastic pellet, shoots below 111.6 m/s (366 fps), and resembles with near precision an existing make and model of a firearm, other than an antique firearm, it will be classified as replica firearm. Replica firearms are prohibited devices and must meet import requirements as listed in D19-13-2.

7. Inquiries and comments about this notice should be directed to: Other Government Department Programs Unit Programs Branch Canada Border Services Agency E-mail: faw.aaf@cbsa-asfc.gc.ca
Thats what they had to say about it. Is it possible to LEGALLY import this and get it through customs?

no, for it does not shoot above 366FPS and you wouldn't be able to anyways, it is out of stock
and why would you want a gun like that?

This gun will not make it through customs. I am not saying this to shit on your corn flakes but to advise you of a fact.

How do I know it won't make it through? Because its what I do, I import airsoft into Canada.

The item in question you wish to import is classified as a replica. Replica's are NOT allowed to be imported into Canada full stop.

1. Get age verified
2. Contact someone who understands how to do this successfully
3. Enjoy your new purchase

Why are you posting? You answered your own question (kudos for looking it up) AND told everyone here that you don't want dissenting opinions.

What's left to say?

Bro.... It's totally a ploy by the retailers to get you to buy in country. It will totally get in fine man and you totally won't get added to a list for secondary inspections and whatnot whenever you try to cross the border or go on international flights. If you ever get SSSS printer on any future boarding passes just means Super Special Secret Somebody and you get your own special security line to go through with barely anyone else there.

Now on a serious note it is what it is so no. Actually read the documentation, it's right there in plain sight.

tl;dr RTFM.

I remember I made a post like this a couple months ago. I was wondering why everyone was getting so mad at me. I can now see why.
And I'd say there is a 90% chance it will get seized. and please don't go to this website unless you are going to ask questions about real airsoft guns. If you really want a springer like this, go to the dollar store, buy one, then paint it. its not that hard.

Even if it is over 366fps with .2g BBs, you'd still need the proper documentation...

If you want a spring gun, go to walmart, buy one, and paint it.....
