What is CANSOFT?

So I've been on this site for a while and I'm still a n00b. >< I've heard cansoft a few times, but I'm still not exactly sure on what it is.

It's the clear guns retailers such as 007airsoft have been importing that are 100% legal to import without a special licenses etc.

How would you rate them? Like, obviously low-end, but are they on par with companies like JG? I guess what I'm asking is are they worth buying? I mean, I myself already have a couple guns, a TM FAMAS and an AGM M-14, but I'm still looking for decent-ish guns to loan to friends who aren't fortunate enough to own an airsoft gun.

Cansoft are basically Canadian-legal guns with clear receivers. There are not the typical clearsoft garbrage. In many instances (depending on brand), these guns are identical in every way to their completely black "pro" guns, but are manufactured with a clear receiver to make them legal to import into Canada. The internals and externals are all high quality. The only thing that differentiates them from their all black counterparts is the clear or translucent receiver.

So basically all they really need to be game or CQB worthy is a paint job?

They include some clear JGs that are coming in and also some that are better than JG. There are G&G and ICS guns with clear receivers which are both respected brands with very good quality.

Correct. And the CA Sportsline series Armalites are also being products in clear. Those are decent guns, although the CA Sportsline (both clear and black) are more akin to JG guns than standard Classic Army in terms of contruction and quality. Nothing wrong with that though, as their price point reflects that.

Would you get in trouble if you altered their colour? I mean, besides the obvious being careless and getting into trouble with the law, would it be advisable to have the recievers painted? I don't see it being any different than people who paint custom camo jobs on their guns.

Thanks for all the help, guys. :] One other question, I heard from a lot of people that 007's old AEGs, the full colour ones, were overpriced, would you say the same about his Cansoft guns?

Well, if you're over 18, get age-verified, you'll have access to the age-restricted areas of the forum and you can find out for yourself.
