Importing Gearboxes into Canada?

About 2 weeks ago I ordered a D-BOYS M4 Complete AEG Gearbox to replace a broken Gearbox 2 in my Firepower M4 which is the copy of the Well R6. http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/other-aeg...g-gearbox.html

I'm just a little worried if the Canadian customs might take this gearbox since it looks like something dangerous, but I could be just overreacting since its Chinese new year and it might take a while for it to come from Hong Kong to Canada >_>

If i can add,

You should take this thing in note, helpfull when you wanna import part & accessories,(Quote from the FAQ)

Quote:
Okay, so I can’t import guns. What about parts and accessories?

Yes. The good news is that most parts and accessories, including most magazines, can be successfully imported by individuals without requiring a BFL. Examples of things you CANNOT import:

AEG magazines with fake cartridges (i.e. P90, G36, SG 552 mags)
Frames, receivers, and metal bodies
Suppressors and silencers
Prohibited-length outer handgun barrels (i.e. USP Compact, Glock 26)
Hand and 40mm grenades that look real
Examples of things you CAN import:

Magazines for AEGs and GBBs without fake cartridges
Outer barrels for most guns
Inner barrels of any type
Handgun slides
Flash suppressors
Scopes, red dot sights, iron sights, lasers
Rail systems and scope mounts
Springs, bushings, gears, pistons, or other gearbox parts
Batteries, BBs, loading tools
Helmets, goggles, body armor, tactical vests, camouflage

Hmmm I hit my bandwidth which caused my ISP to disable my internet and I wasn't able to reply to my thread for a while...:banghead:

Anyway the gearbox fit and the results were clean and I also bought a Dboys 190 VN Mag since the Firepower F4 mags were garbage.

I bought the Firepower M4. Lasted less than 10 shots before the gearbox made a big crunching sound and it stopped working.

But it's a standard V2 box, so no reason it shouldn't fit.
