Buying Metal Airsoft Guns

I have read the "No you CANNOT import guns" thread but that was made long time ago and times have changed.

You can import guns between 366-500fps but I don't know if you can import full metal ones.

I just ordered a full metal one from ASGI, so... will it will be seized by customs?

It shouldnt get stopped but it all depends on the customs officer.
Many things that shouldnt be siezed get siezed and alot of restricted stuff gets in.

Because you asked us, even though you peed first, no they will not get wet.

Lol yeah I know... I had my eye on it for a week but yesterday it just ran out of stock before I had a chance to buy it. Then today I saw it was in-stock again so I didn't think twice and bought it...

I also put in a pair of goggles making it over $200 which I forgot about the $46+ customs charge for sending over $200 in value.

CRAP.

Doesn't ASGI ship using UPS only?

Prepare to get charged like $100 in fees for brokerage (really just signing a piece of paper) and whatever else they decide to charge you for.

that's like asking if you're going to get an STD AFTER you've fucked the hooker.

good luck, bud, if you manage to get it, congrats but if your rifle gets seized, I am going to laugh myself to death when you get blacklisted from CBSA for bringing in a "replica firearm"
and next time, think and ask before you try to import an airsoft rifle from the states or internationally

As long as the ASG meets the muzzle energy requirements and you get a CBSA officer who is up to speed with the laws than you will not have an issue.

However, the UPS rape charges are going to make it not worth buying in the US at all.

True story, if I order anything from the US I make sure it's not shipped via UPS. If it is I prepare my wallet for a good old fasion pounding by a large brown man wearing shorts.
