Hi-Capa Pistol Slide Importation

I read on the forums that Pistol Slides are not illegal to import from Crunchmeister. Only that the Lower frame is illegal.

Now my Hi-capa 5.1 slide (With the internals) has been seized and is pending Appeal or Sending it back.

As I assume my Customs Agent did not know the difference between receivers since he said the Pistol Slide had a Lower Receiver attached to it. Even though I did not get the lower frame of the Pistol, only the slide and its internals (Hop up unit, outer barrel)

I was wondering if anyone else has gone through this process and what they wrote for their Appeal. Thanks a bunch.

That sucks man, shouldn't have been seized. You didn't get the middle metal frame right?

Ohh.... if the metal middle frame came with it, then yes, it's grounds for seizure. Can you link us to the item you ordered? Then we can tell you for sure if it was an appropriate seizure or not.

I would read the exact article they quoted in the seizure notice and ensure the item does not meet the description listed therein.

Then, write & mail (or fax) a letter explaining exactly why it does not meet the description in the tariff they state.

Wait 3-4 months while the item is sent to the Firearms Official for the CBSA.

Hopefully, you will have your slide returned to you. If you don't, they will at least tell you why.

Either way, let us know.

Its a Plastic Slide with all the internals (Hop-up, barrel,outer barrel)

As for middle metal receiver part, do you mean like the having the whole barrel, hop-upunit and spring and all inside the slide?

Again, post a link to the exact item you ordered from the exact retailer if possibe (preferably with a pic) and we can maybe answer the question better.

Hi Capas are a bit different from other pistols, where there is a slide, a middle frame, and lower frame / grip. If what you ordered included the slide and middle frame, then it was grounds for seizure.

Assuming whoever you ordered it from didn't mess up and send you a frame by accident, there's no reason why it shouldn't get through.

Yup. The middle frame is included. That was rightfully seized. That's basically all the business components of the gun right there without the grip

Ahh so you mean that Silver thing in the Slide is prohibited

I did not get the middle metal frame

All I wanted was a replacement slide, and they probably accidentally sent me the whole internal kit

If this is what you ordered, then you didn't order just the slide. That's a slide and middle frame set. If you could link us to the actual item you ordered - not a picture of it - but of the actual item on the actual site you ordered it from, it would be a lot more helpful.

Unfortunately there is no site, I got it from my friend in Japan, I asked my friend to send me upper slide of the TM Hicapa since I already pretty much have one and the lower frame and middle frame is fine

No, he said he just ordered a complete slide, and the picture shows that. Shouldn't have been seized.

cbc: Complete slides with all the internals are fine.
