Newb question on what would be the best way to move a used Airsoft Rifle from States into Canada

So my buddy's got a Lancer Tactical M4-S that he's willing to sell to me used.

Problem is, he's in the states. Specifically Pittsburgh.

What would the best way be about getting that from where he is, to Toronto?

Is there a legal way to move it here? Do I have to import it through a store or offical(s)?

Here's what it looks like.

Is he asking for 50 bucks and you pay for shipping? Still not worth it tbh for something worth about 100 brand new.

This guy isn't a retailer, so he wouldn't have the right paperwork. You're also looking a shitty gun. Get something worth buying. Airsoft is not a sport to cheap out on.

like i said does he have the original packaging? If he has it amd the fps is labled clearly on the box it may get in but i doubt it, its not worth the hassel for a gun that will break quickly, u can buy a much beter gun for about what that will cost if u pay say 50 for the gun 50 for shipping, then ull pay like 50 for tax and duty and maybe more, just buy a jg/echo1 or even a cyma u will be much more satisfied.

As Hectic said, if all the original packaging and documentation is with it, and it meets all legal specifications it might make it. The risk however is high, and if it gets seized they may destroy it, without compensation to you or your friend. This is a bad idea for you to do things this way.

If that does not convince you, the shipping costs will be near or around the price of the gun. It would only be worth it if he's damn near giving it to you; like $20 or so, but then there still is the "huge" shipping risk. And if all goes well, and for some weird reason it does make, it make take months to get approved by the CBSA.

This 95% a bad idea... Buy within Canada, save yourself a headache. We do know what we are talking about.

Dude, just invest in a new gun that you know works and that you won't have to worry about getting seized at the border. There are so many Canadian retailers with decent guns at decent prices. Stay away from Lancer Tactical stuff. Not to bash them, but they're more the type of rifle you buy your 14 year old brother who wants to do some plinking in the backyard, not something you would want to game.

Good luck, but I highly doubt it'll cross customs. As everyone stated, you'll have much better luck buying a new one. Or, buy one the ASC recommended Rifle. King Arms M4 Full Metal. Agian, good luck bud.
