Think I got fast shipping. I placed an order with UNCOMANY (Oct30). Received it today Nov 8. Ordered a metal slide and metal outer barrel/chamber. Strange too, because it was declared at 91 USD. Didn't pay duties. Guess im lucky

Bah I ordered Oct31 same item with some extra's such as mag and other parts, looks like customs though for me is going to take awhile.

Dunno maybe, it was the magazine that did it. It is a big hunk of hollow metal. Xrays might not have given a clear enough picture of it. But then again, there doesn't seem to be any formula on how CBSA decides to check their packages, besides the obvious ones. However this was my first airsoft order maybe that had something to do with it. However, Im sure UN Company is flagged by CBSA along with others.

I ordered 5 MP40 mags from Cobra Airsoft, along with numerous other things. It was shipped from there to my door in under a week, no duties, no customs. It all comes down to luck of the draw really.

Yup I was told today pretty much if it goes in for inspection, its the luck of the draw at that point on how long it stays in customs hands.

Consider you guys lucky.

It is not airsoft related (never had any problem ordering from Uncompany or RedWolf... both times everything was in under 5 days)

Ordered a laptop on ebay.

September 9th.
Shipped Sep. 10th.
Arrived in Canada Sep. 16th.
Stock at customs up to Oct. 10th
The seller was kind enought to try resending an other via Fedex
Arrived at Mirabel Oct. 15th.
Stuck there since then.
Now the seller went up to California, bought an other one, came back in country with the laptop.
I just received tracking. Should arrive by Thuesday.

That is 3000$ we are talking about... (ok... MSRP is 4600$, but still I bought it 3000$)

I just wish you guys more luck than what I had.

Did you choose TNT or did you choose the any express option. With my first order from UN I choose the EMS option. Those items metal slide/outer barrel and a few other things had a 9 day stay with customs. Was not charged any duties etc upon delivery but, have been waiting in the mail for that to arrive. My next order from UN though is not going to well paid for on the 17th yet not shipped. Was told today in an email the the shooters design part 78, is not in stock and it will be shipped when they get it .

I had a laptop in customs for months, they got it just before the Xmas break, no invoice from the shipper on the package Then they're closed for XX days for the season. Got the invoice, got in touch with them on the phone, emailed them the invoice and it was released.

If I hadn't been experienced in clearing oddball items out of customs I might have just sat around with no idea about where it was till the clock ran out and they sold it off as unclaimed. This wasn't an eBay deal but an overhaul so I only had a vague idea of when it was leaving the techie.

I chose TNT specifically.
they had an offer 1$ cheaper but I chose to stick to TNT.

@Danke: customs are a state-controlled mafia.
