Ya hes reliable, but call him up before you order that because he might not have it in stock which means you could be waiting a VERY long time for it

For the price he's asking, you might as well get age verified and browse the classifieds.

You forgot the most important item of all, eye protection.

I never bought from 007, but everybody here will tell you that he is reliable. The problem is that right now, he seems to keep no airsoft guns in stock. Which mean that you will have to wait for him to order it for you, which apparently takes months.

You could wait longer. Get age verified and buy from the classifieds. You will even save a few bucks.

Unhappy 007 Airsoft Review

I ordered my M16A2 from Ken at 007 and the service was pretty good. However, his prices leave much to be desired. Right now, he is saying he can order guns from WGC Shop for customer. The prices he is asking for are outrageous! As an example, I inquired about the Warrior I (Type 96) spring airsoft rifle on WGC Shop which is quoted at $85.00 USD. He wants $400 CAD for an $85 USD gun!!! How does he expect to do business with those prices. Is he going to charge me the same amount for an HFC M190 semi too? lol

If you really want, you can try to import that M16A2 yourself. Best of luck to you!

He's one of two retailers in Canada, the other being A&A. And his prices still turn out to be a few dollars less in most cases I find.

Ok, I agree that his prices are definitely less than A&A, but when compared to WGC, he is way overpriced. I already have the M16, but I did the math when ordering a $85 USD sniper rifle. The total for the gun should come around to $190 CAD + $50 shipping. I can't determine the amount he wants for profit, but in the end, the total for the gun should be around $250. What I am trying to say is that if he decided to make less profit off each gun, more people would want to buy from overseas. He might even end up making MORE money that way. Its a matter of supply and demand. But what do I know! lol

Ok I'll try to explain it as nicely as possible. When you import these guns LEGALLY there are allot of fees and paperwork that must be done. Brokerage fees, taxes on the items, shipping costs, etc and the cost just keeps going up. Trust us when we say that the prices he charges are pretty much the bare minimum. Did I forget anything?

Listen to this guy. You're complaint has been voiced here many times, and the reasons for prices in Canada have been explained many times, Airsoft in Canada costs so much because it is NOT easy to legally import, thus why there are so few retailers, and i have yet to hear anything bad about 007 for the record, in fact i plan to purchase a P90 from 007 soon (as soon as i get a reply and some info from them in fact)

Don't blame Ken or Mark for high prices. Blame our stupid government and our dumb laws.
