this is not a replica, it doesnt matter what it use to be, what it is now is all that matters. there is no real world equivilent to "replicate" this from, so it is exempt. it will not get siezed. it is a toy or collectable as stated.

Read my post though which came right off their website:

Quote:
Generally, toy or model guns and starter pistols do not qualify to be considered as firearms; however, some toy or model guns and starter pistols may be designed with a very realistic mechanism or appearance (e.g., colour, size). For example, the action of a toy or model gun
They dont have to look like a real gun to be a replica....

Have them paint it with a water base, than mark it as a NERF GUN. I have order a few Nerf/foam shooters for my kids from the US some looking very much like shot guns with no issues .

Realistically though as others have stated it will get seized, than added to some customs guys collection.

drache, theyre talking about a realistic looking toy, not a fictional looking one. it doesnt have a working mechanism ie. working bolt. if it shot real rounds, or resembled a real gun then it would fall under that catagorey. since it doesnt have either trait it is exempt. not trying to discredit you.

It will be seized, as that particular kit includes the RECEIVER.

And yet, the JG Thundermaul crosses the border and is available from several retailers, despite having a regular M4 under its furniture...

I tried doing something like this before because at the time I didnt think it "looked" like a firearm. It will be seized. You will be arrested, and you will be fined. Dont do it. Thats why canada has the rules. They are very anal at the boarder and they will cause nothin but shit if you say you got an airsoft gun. Also ALWAYS DECLARE, if you dont and they find it, you will be in more trouble then you can ever imagine.

Go tell CBSA let to update their FRT. and soon they'll be denied too.

Alright folks here's hows gonna work.

Here's your homework.
1) Read through Memorandum D19-13-2
2) Read through The Firearm Act
3) Read through Criminal Code Section 2

Once you done that you will figure out the defination of replica is flawed.

General rule,
if it looks like a gun,
that is not clear, or out of porportion in size (eg a rocket launcher smaller than a hand)
not an antique its a replica
does not cause serious injury or death (blinding an eye IS NOT a serious injury. I don't care, The CBSA don't care, the Laws DOES NOT CARE IF YOU GO BLIND, it is not a serious injury)


Exception:
If it's clear, out of porportion in size
Antqiue Firearm Replica (often refers to as muskets. Gew98 is NOT an antique)
Causes severe injury and death

Example:
1) You import a totally clear gun, it's not replica
2) You import a gun that is 1/12 size of real one, its not a replica
3) You import an airsoft musket pistol (there's one brand made in China) its not a replica
4) You import a pellet gun which can probably kill an old lady in 80s in 5 shots 5 feet away from here, it is not a replica. **

**If it can kill people effective enough with sufficient velocity and kinetic energy it will require firearm license and registeration assuming it is not on the prohibited list.


Should you import it? No
Can you import it? Yes
Can you import legally and successfully without BFL? Yes
Can I do it now? Did you read through the three assignment?
