Stop.

If you're going to talk about how you're going to break the law by smuggling airsoft across the border, don't. We don't want to hear about it and you're not doing airsoft in Canada any favour. If you want to smuggle, and we're telling you not to, please don't talk about it here. Please leave us out of the loop.

i did not mention smuggling!! i heard there is a much better chance of getting it cleared if you are there in person to explain the true nature of the product. like pointing out that it has the orange safety tip and cant be modified for real rounds and so on...

Still considered a replica hence illegal to bring into country without license .

Look, I've said this before, and you've obviously didn't read the FAQ, but airsoft is illegal for the average citizen to import because of its resemblence to real firearms. It doesn't matter that it shoots harmless BBs, it's the visual and handling characteristics that makes it illegal to import. Orange tip means nothing to Canadian officials.

Although everyone here has made fun of it so far:
a KWC ultragrade desert eagle springer. just for plinking around. plus i have always liked the DE and want to know how big they are in person.

all this is terribly depressing news tho.

KWC ultragrade springers were difficult to get in Canada even in the best of times.

You might want to get age verified anyways, at least it'll add to your options later.

i keep running into the age verification thing and i dont know when i'll be able to get verified.

What makes me mad is that BuyAirsoft.ca is the only Canadian site i know of that sells KWC at the moment and they refused to import it.

thing is, they carry the KWC GBBs, so why not the springer?

If you really want an airsoft gun, just get checked out. Prove you're over 18, go through the process.

Then you really must learn about the rules/laws surrounding the ownership and use of Replica guns. Just plinking, in most places, is out of the question.

Please read some more of the FAQ? The answers are there, so are the solutions?

After age-verification, you'll also have access to the Classifieds section. Lots of stuff to buy there.

We can't answer that. Probably best not to dwell on it too much. Think of this as a forced saving of money for a GBB at a later date.

There is no need to look for the secret bypassing loop as there are none.

Importing airsoft is illegal unless you have the proper permits and even then it is still pretty complicated and will cost you alot.

Your options are to get Age Verified and buy used or get one from the very few remaining canadian retailers. That's pretty much it.
