It's not just Marui. If it isn't clear, it's classified as a replica (with a handful of model/size exemptions) and therefore the CBSA says "prohibited" and denies importation. All manufacturers are lumped together in this.

What the remaining retailer decides to bring in is his choice. You can always ask about a special order.

In addition to the speedboat idea. We should make an island in international waters and have games there. NO FPS LIMIT

Just to let you know !

We have a big compagny that organize event for corporate world..

And they had 2 Clear airsoft gun seize and they lost the appeal..

So even Clearsoft is not legal in quebec at least.

Clearsofts can get seized as they get accessed on a case by case basis, if it's still the same size of the real thing and isn't clear enough; say for M4s I was told the pistol grip must be clear cause in a real M4 that's where the firing mechanism is or something.

as was stated anything falling under 'not-clear' or 'replica firearm' is seized, and the ways things are its probably not a good idea to even be talking about guns in public.

AAsurplus is still importing, but in limited quantity, sometimes theres just not enough room in a crate to bring in what everyone wants.
get age verified before you send any emails to AAsurplus or your on his ban list.

As for pricing, simply said, demand is high, and supply is VERY low. The more people asking for airsoft, the more it's gonna cost as it's getting more and more difficult to import the stuff.

There's already one in country, and it's a Dave's military Surplus. It's airsoft and it's just hanging off his wall not being used. He says it fires about 5000 rds/min once it get going. Looked bloody sweet. I hope they resolve this somehow, I'd like to continue my TM collection without having to go used all the time. Next year I want to get a type 89, but that is pending the CBSA loosens up a little.

I hope they do, only a few months until i can finally get my first Aeg's. If they don't it might mean no TM Famas and ICS M4 for me or for anyone , unless they buy used.
