pissed right off

I ordered some tokyo marui gun powder last summer. its been being held by customs since september. i didn't get an letter or a call or anything as to why it was being held. canada post says they sent me 3 letters. turns out that canada post cannot transport compressed gasses. if they contacted me like they said they did i could have had it fedexed to me and i would have gladly paid the extra cost. now its been destroyed.
i'm so glad canada post knows what they are doing . .

TM gun powder?
WTF?

And ordering airsoft guns outside of canada was just against what is recommended here, for the very reason you mentionned. If by gun powder you ment an AEG or something like it.

I think he is referring to green gas or something.

If by gun powder you mean Green Gas, use propane and an AI adapter found here www.gungas.com

Flammable gases are still flammable gasses.

Yep, you fucked up.

The guys at AI are really good people, I'm sure (positive, as in %100) that you made a mistake while ordering the adapter from them, and if you had followed up with some research, you would have known what weight silicone oil to use.

If you've fucked the seals, there are not many places other than the manufacturer to get them, most people open the mags and use different methods of liquid sealers.

So here, go buy new mags, they are NOT restricted.

they are good people but is till haven't gotten my goods. they took 3 months to send them to me, then they said they sent them to me , tracked the order and it said it was delivered successfully. i told them , they asked to confirm my address, i did, postal code was wrong but like the guy at canada post said it still should have gotten to me cause both postal codes deliver to my place. i told them there was some confusion over a typo in my address to reconfirm, they never got back to me.

yah the lube i should have done my research, i asked a few times on here what to use, i went with the gun gas gus lube, never go tot me asked for another option. musta bought the wrong stuff. (ie heavy duty) LOL! its not just the mag seals that are gone . its all the rubber components in my gun, including the barrel seal and the slide seals.

ty for the help

bought 2 mags.

By "barrel seal" do you mean the hop up rubber? I don't know about "slide seals".

Are you sure it was pure silicone oil? I can't see it doing THAT much damage to a gun just for being a heavy weight... I may be wrong though.

I've seen hopup sleeve swelling from even the silicon oil from AI. I think depends on the rubber used.

Oh boy.

Go to your local hobby shop and buy a bottle of "RC Shock Oil", is what all the cool peeps use, and buy your keyboard duster from computer stores, check the label (generally in the WARNING/FIRST AID part of the label) to see if it's diflouroethane (weaker) or tetraflouroethane (stronger, weaker than propane).

AI stuff is 5 weight, stuff I always use is 20-30 weight, since I also use it for GBB internals.
