Hi new member on the thread and thx for such useful infos taught me alot about airsoft guns anywho. My bro is a huge James Bond fan and he asked me to ship out a Maruzen Walther PPK Gas gun from Japan as i am going to be visiting there this summer i was gonna just EMS it to him now my questions is:

If you order a gun outside Canada 99% chance It WILL be confiscated.

Yes Customs will 99.95% of the time confiscate the gun.

Yes, hundereds of people have ordered from japanese sites and had their guns seized. I can count the guns Ive heard of comming in though customs safely on one hand.

Years ago (around 2000) I ordered a M11 from a US distributor. I ended up losing my cash and the gun. Shortly afterwards I found this website and have since never ordered a gun from overseas.


Here's some free advice. goto a game and meet the people and learn about the structure around your parts. If you just want the gun for plinking I highly suggest you contact one of the reputable retailers in canada or check the private sales. Alot of the retailers can obtain special orders, just don't be surprised if you pay alittle extra for it.

Good luck and happy trails.

you could just put the gun in a condom and swallow it, then when you land in canada grunt it out.

Although the aspect of a cheaper gun in japan is tempting, the risk isnt worth it. Your better off attempting to find it in Canada either via online retailers or becoming age verified through ASC and finding someone who has one for sale.

Don't forget that if you are caught imported controlled goods, you'll also end up on an obscure government list, and everything else you'll import after that will be automatically searched, and probably taxed while they're at it.

Age verify, buy local.
