Yeah, it's listed at the top under "Canadian Retailers".... Ken from 007 is great to deal with.... unfortunately I didn't get what I wanted but he was very accomodating and honest about it. If you were referring to AIMODELS it's http://www.spots.ab.ca/~aim/

Do you have to be making a film to buy from them?

Stuff arrived a week ago, in perfect condition.
Here's a short retailer review, I'll make a longer one in the Reviews section once I get back to Halifax.

I ordered my FA-MAS F1 from Peter Lukas a while ago, and not only did I get a fast reply, the price was a good hundred dollars less then I expected. Immediately, I started scrounging up all disposable income I had, and putting it into another minor Airsoft fund. During which, my incredible impatience and obvious talkative-ness (Not really a word, but I didn't think Talkativity was either) was tolerated by him with amazing patience, with many idiotic inquiries made and answered quite quickly.
At first, I was quite skeptical about this retailer, as there were almost no resources about him, but I quickly began to trust him more and more, due to character evidence (By the sound of him, he's not only a great person, but a family man and a good guy to deal with), a few extremely-old threads dealing with him, and the fact Aquamarine was pretty good friends with him.
Despite the long wait time (Airsoft isn't his specialty, but the service and the prices definately make up for the long wait time. Besides, it's winter. What the hell are we going to be doing with the guns, besides plinking?), the friendliness of his answers and the amazing pricing makes up for that, and the fact that he mass-orders to WGC.
After a while, te order was in and WGC managed to process it. From then on, it was impatience, swearing at Canada Post and other various things for taking so long (I perhaps shouldn't have, as their service was quite good too. Kudos, Canada Post!) the item arrived in perfect condition, wrapped properly and completely intact.
My rating- Amazing retailer. His orders are months apart, but this doesn't make much difference due to the fact it not only is in winter, the prices are much lower then usual, and the selection is anything in-stock on WGC. However, the FA-MAS didn't get in time for the firearms documentary we were making, so we had to do with describing cardboard cut-outs.

If you don't mind I have a few questions:

1. What is the pricing like? (as in how much was your F1; how does that compare to canadian pricing?)

2. What are some advantages/disadvantages? (besides long wait times)

3. How long did it take to get to you between talking to Peter about your order, and arriving? A month (more? less?)

Thanks

Pricing- depends on gun. FA-MAS F1 with all the gear was 455 total.
Advantages- Low prices, great service, friendly guy.
Disadvantages- Wait times, but who cares? It's winter.
Time taken- About 2-3 months, yet a lot of it was meaningless banter beforehand. Sorry, I don't have the specific answer to that...

Not to rain on anyones parade but I was interested in purchasing a G36C off of him. Sent him and e-mail he confimed price and stock and said he would get back to me. This was 1-1.5 months ago.

I was able to aquire a NIB G36C in the mean time from another source. But if someone is interested in giving you money for a product you have in stock and are selling... don't leave them hanging with a "I'll get back to you on that..."

I'm sure he just forgot... He is human, when I contacted him, he would get back to me within a couple (work) hours.

Great guy, ended up not buying from him... took a different AEG path, still want that VN though... my poor bank account.
