Are you saying that somebody has this in writing?

I'm not trying to be an ass. I'm actually genuinely interested. This would be nice.

Depends who your writing at the CBSA, I've received both phone calls and emails from them. If anyone does take the risk of importing on their own, and do legally abide to declare their purchases while entering back into Ontario (Which is always the safer way) Be polite, don't be an ass at anytime, make sure the weapons locked in the trunk, or even better if you have (and you should) a lock box, put the newly bought, still packaged toy in there - it'll show responsible shipping on your part after purchasing.
I mean it's all common sense but some lack it.
Warchild - Awesome work man as always is more than nice to see a retailer go that extra mile for their customers. I know it helps your sales out, but very few states side places have done something like this for us.
cheers.

tokyo marui has trades though, so they would not qualify.

afaik, Exho-1 also has a firearms manufacturing license (i think thats what its called) that allows them to start putting forearm manufacturing trades on their guns... yet another off the list if thats the case

Ok, that's the wrong attitude. Your customs officials are doing their jobs, and they're not being slack. However, your laws allow for a little bit of interpretation on the matter; let's just be glad that they may continue to interpret in a favorable manner on a few items. Again, something is better than nothing.

All airsoft guns transported and sold in the US must, by Federal law, have a blaze orange muzzle tip in place. Thus, any gun purchased from the US will have one.

Of course not. Let's be real, here. He let us take copious notes while he was talking, but there's no way he was going to give us anything affirming it in writing.

Remember what we're dealing with here. This is a very small grey area in your laws. Open entirely to their interpretation. To write it down, would be for this man to permanently decide on a matter of law....hardly his job or responsibility. Let's just be glad that they've chosen to be somewhat reasonable about this "grey area" and may permit a tiny segment of AEG's into your country.

Yeah, that was it. I wouldn't really want an armalite unless it was metal, but G36's are plastic in real life and CA36's don't have any real trades. I suddenly want a CA36 again...

$325 + 15% = ~$375 for CA36K makes my blood pressure rise

5 1/2 hour drive down (according to google maps) + traffic time, long weekend as surebet mentioned...if only I had a vehicle

EDIT: Then again, I probably wouldn't want to try it with something that expensive...maybe get a KWA gbb or something to make sure it actually gets across.
