Buying from Tiger111hk

So I noticed this forum retailer advertising quite a bit in the AV retailer section and their prices are VERY good. However browsing their website, they cannot guarantee shipments to Canada given they ship from Hong Kong and obviously with our import laws restricting airsoft guns. Is this really the case? Or do they have some sort of Canadian source they use when fulfilling Canadian orders?

I find it hard to believe that Airsoft Canada would allow them to continually advertise their guns for sale if we can't even have them shipped (seems useless to me). Could anyone shed some light on this for me?

They say it so they aren't liable if custom "seizes it," a standard on all Asian companies.

Typically you buy gear, parts, accessories, etc from Asia companies

Guns that shoot within the range of what's considered proper fps which is 366-500 it can be imported fine.

I know several users and people who have done this fine.

Replica firearms (prohibited devices)

Replica firearms:

are designed or intended to exactly resemble a firearm with near precision;
are not reproductions of antique firearms; and
may include airsoft or blank guns.
Replica firearms are classified as prohibited devices. Individuals cannot import them into Canada.
So this is not the case when it comes to importing airsoft then?

Do a little searching, you will find that this topic has been discussed a lot. I think there is a sticky post in this section

yeah, I found that by reading one of those threads. I missed the bit about airsoft going from replica to air gun at a certain FPS.

I bought a wood SVD kit from them and it got here in only a week. I wouldn't recommend buying any guns or other parts from any non-domestic shop though.

Sorry for the threadjack, but what was the quality of the wood kit?

If it exactly resembles, or with near precision looks like a real firearm, and discharges a plastic or wax projectile at less than 111.6 m/s (366 fps), its a replica and prohibited device under Canadian law.

If it is similar to a real firearm and discharges a plastic or wax projectile at less than 111.6 m/s (366 fps), but is made from translucent or bright coloured plastic, it is considered an imitation firearm and permitted under Canadian law.

If it exactly resembles, or with near precision looks like a real firearm, and discharges a plastic or wax projectile at more than 111.6 m/s (366 fps), it is a firearm, either uncontrolled or controlled, under Canadian law.

They will ship to Canada and guns will get through if they meet Canadian requirements. They will even ship guns that do not meet the requirements but I wouldn't recommend doing that. I ordered one "Canada legal" gun from them, paid through the web site and ended up waiting for over 3 months to get it because apparently they were out of stock while web store still showed it as in stock and took my payment... So yea, I'd be careful and buy local if I were you.

I got the Eagle Force kit and I am very impressed with the quality considering the low price. It's very sturdy with an even finish. Only bad thing is that you may need to file down a few bits to get the fit to be perfect, but not a huge deal.
