Exclamation Import help, not on guns for once.

well im one of the lone rangers out here in nova scotia, down the south shore way, and me and my buddies are getting into this thing we all call airsofting. Now i have a few questions. on import obviously. Is it legal for me to go on a united states site, and import not a gun, but a magazine? I know Im a noob but i just want to make sure, dont want my money going to waste through seizure. (by the way im looking at S&W M3000 mags, and Sig P226 Mags)

any help would be greatly appreciated!
thank ya!

Any mags except for ones with fake bullets are OK to import.

That means P90 and G36 mags.

You can however import the solid coloured G36 mags.

...... there huge section FREQENTLY ASK QUESTION.....
Read here my friend!

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

Note that CBSA inspectors have discretion to detain goods of questionable legality, and although it shows up on the above list it MAY be held if you draw an inspector that is particularly ignorant or of foul demeanor. That said, I have yet to hear of any seizures of the above items.

Prohibited-length handgun barrels may or may not be stopped. Most outer barrels are not dimensioned internally to even appear capable of firing a real bullet, and faux rifling marks typically extend only a few millimeters down the bore. However CBSA inspectors are not firearms experts and if they think there's a potential of it being usable in a real gun, they'll seize it rather than risk their jobs. Best not to take a chance on it.
