Your question has two parts: To answer, buying the gun is perfectly legal. Importing it is a bit less so.

And Hectic is right, there's no money to be saved by buying from the States anymore, now that the market is in full swing here in Canada. Shipping, duty, GST/HST, and brokerage fees will more than obliterate any savings on the retail price.

Get age verified and buy a good used gun from the Classifieds if you don't want to pay retail.

theres no guarantee that you can get it cleared through customs, nor that your seller would provide correct vetted paperwork.

In addition to being a LOT of guns on ebay misrepresented in the description.

Just a short quick answer NO

if you want a more detailed answer please refer to the hundreds of thread in the Newbie section regarding importation/where to buy/what gun etc...

also please read the FAQ

No.
If you insist on buying from the states, buy from a retailer that provides documentations. Even with the right paperwork, it can be scetchy
