Airsoft guns are not replica firearms.

Explain more. Airsoft guns shooting above 366fps with .2 gram bb are good to go.

I think there's some confusion about terms here.

In terms of legality (as far as the realm of airsoft velocities are concerned):
An item resembling an existing firearm, that fires a .2g BB at a velocity less than 366 FPS, is called a "Replica Firearm", and is illegal for you to import.
If that same item fires a .2g BB at a velocity between 366 FPS and 500FPS, it is an "Unregulated Firearm", and is legal for import.
If that same item fires at an FPS greater than 500 FPS, it is a "Regulated Firearm", and is illegal for you to import (in simple airsoft terms).

Well antiques are things made before 1899 and mostly encompass lock type weapons such as flintlock, firelock, matchlock etc.

Antique firearms

Replicas of antiques are not considered firearms.
This is not legal advice, and if in doubt contact your provincial firearms guy

I think that is greater than 500 FPS AND 5.7J muzzle energy.

What R.I.T.Z means, is that according to the forum rules (http://airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=53202), we can't provide a non age verified user with information on how to obtain airsoft weapons.

The link in his post points to an age restricted area of the forum, where sales are arranged and made.

The bluntness of his post comes from the frustration of people posting without having read the forum rules first.

Yet we just discussed what he can and cannot import.......

At least no one touched on the paperwork this time.

No, we are not allowed to provide you information on the acquisition of these items at all beyond telling you they're readily available in the country and that getting age verified is, honestly, a good idea, and opens up access to MANY items of all types which are, at times, priced to "Fly off the shelf".

I think the rules need a bit of a revamp and be clarified a bit. It's great and all that people are interested in airsoft but as a frequent reader on this forum I've noticed a lot of new unverified members asking what to get, how to get it, and where to get it and numerous AV'd members replying with the names of stores and locations that have "X" gun in stock.

Isn't that sorta thing supposed to be in the AV'd part of the forum?
