G&G a standup company [Contest winner]

I won a G&G GR4 last November 2012. I am from BC Canada. G&G contacted me and I was so happy I had won. They told me they would ship me the gun via EMS mail service. I was concerned about importing into Canada and they drew up a letter stating the GR4 was upgraded to shoot 366FPS+ for Canadian laws. The gun got seized by CBSA for the reason it resembled a M4 assault rifle. I disputed the classification which took many moths to complete. The RCMP finally tested the GR4 in June 2013 and found the gun did not pass as it fired 350-360FPS after 10 shots. I was very sad as I had fought very hard to get this gun. I contacted G&G and told them about the news and they also were disappointed but told me they would assist me if they could., A week later I got a phone call from a G&G distributor in Canada and was offered a replacement gun. As they didnt have the GR4 I was allowed to choose another model. I chose a G&G M14 Veteran with Walnut stock. I received the gun within 1 week and am very pleased with the gun. It shoots very accurate and is very classy. I planned on giving the GR4 to my nephew, but since I did not receive it and I really like the M14 I bought a G&G CM16 AEG for him. The M4 is also a very nice gun and I will post up a picture when I give it to him. I am sure he will be very happy as I know I would have loved it when I was his age. Thanks for reading and thanks to G&G for being a standup company.

So they didn't test the fps before shipping, or otherwise made no attempt to make it fire over the classification threshold.

It gets seized, you get red flagged, months pass, and the end result of having G&G arranging an in-country distributor to award you your prize is what should have been done in the first place.

Standup, or fall flat?

Pardon my cynicism. Its early and I've yet to have my sweet caffeinated nectar. Also, congrats on winning.

Yeah grats on winning but shame on g and g.
They obviously just stuck a letter on the box sayin they had upgraded it when in fact the only upgrade was the letter.
Good on them for making it right tho.

In this day and age of entitlement and lack of accountability, I am very happy with the results. The proper thing would have been to just ship within Canada, but they did what they did, God only knows why.
