Redwolf Airsoft?

Do they ship to Canada? It says they do on their site but will it get taken at the borders or something?
thanks

Anyone can ship "to" the Canadian border. Whether Canada customs actually let the item across the border is a different issue. If the item in question is an airsoft gun, you can basically forget about the idea.

There is a huge vast topic to this question, tough guns will most likely surely be seized parts and supplies in other hand will not (except for the barrel of a pistol i cant recall how long and metal bodys for guns)

but if you buy tune up kits or w-e you want, go right ahead nothing will stop you if your not sure if it will get passed ask someone in here or post it up

There is a basic list in the FAQ section that I can't seem to find at the moment (just got up...) that lists what you can and cannot import. But also take into account that whether it gets seized or not has little to do with the actual laws and lots to do with what that specific inspector thinks.

For example, non-prohibited length pistol slides and barrels, M203 shells, and mags with dummy rounds visible (TM G36 lowcaps for example) are NOT against the rules but OFTEN get dinged because lots of customs inspectors think they are against the rules. Then you need to go through a long appeal process if you don't want them to just destroy it. Mechboxes have also been seized from time to time, there is always a risk regardless.

Things like whole guns, receivers, and things that are really obviously restricted/prohibited gun parts are illegal.

Things like solid colour mags, internal components, inner/outer barrels, RIS/RAS units, etc. are all okay 99% of the time.

Also remember if you order from the States they have several EXPORT banns. Like NVG's, RIS/RAS units, body armour, anything made by Magpul, etc. etc.

It is possible that it will make it across. So many packages, so few customs agents.

I have had no problem shipping a couple of clear body guns (customs told me they were ok). I have then purchased the metal body parts seperatly with no issues either.

Customs is hit and miss. 2 guys I work with had bottles of wine shipped to them as gifts last week. One got the wine, the other got an empty box with a letter in it saying it was confiscated.

Was the writing on the letter kinda wobbly with bad spelling? lol

I know people who have gotten entire full metal AEG's across and semi-automatic blank firing replicas (as in full sized blanks, not just primers.) I also know people that have gotten springs seized because the customs inspector wasn't sure if they would shoot over 500fps or not.

As the Saint said everyone can ship to Canada, whether a full airsoft gun will get through is the decision of the custom agents which most of the time will get seized.

You'll hear stories of people getting things through but they also did not tell you the things that got seized and destroyed and loss of money

It doesn't. CBSA screeners aren't the most consistent of bunch at interpreting policy, much less law.

I've seen gearboxes seized before, and even Agit-Prop had an M249 spring kit seized... just because it said "M249" on it.
