This is getting me all worried, wonder if I should call them up.

I have some steel parts there right now, the one part I'm worried about is an AK Steel Bolt Carrier, it shouldn't be restricted though :S

Just mix a whole bunch of odd scraps of metal in the box, they'll have fun searching for something that isn't in the box.

u should ship those evil black receivers on a regular basis, lol...
Maybe at last when everyone at CBSA give up, we can then ship real black receivers, lol!

Anyway, since gearbox is being difficult to bring in now... i guess retailers will find an interest in stocking more of them... Currently, the stock of gearboxes in airsoftparts is basically zero... but they don't have to be M150s... I would rather go for JG boxes and S140 springs... even if it breaks, come on, it's a JG, not a systema...lol

Actually, there's just not enough complete gearboxes here in country. Yet there are sufficient bushings, springs, pistons and shells that u can make one yourself... usually, that's more saving...

Next time you buy something like that. Have the sender ship it with radioactive tape that has like black and yellow stripes. Tell them it's for a science project. lol

I was like literally one click away from buying a full gearbox from the states a few months ago. I was afraid of something like this happening. You got lucky and your package was inspected by somebody with a head on their shoulders. Good on ya, lol.

I just order most of the parts for an M4, including a gearbox, Redwolf actually e-mailed me and warned me about the customs issues in Canada, kinda nice of them I guess. CBSA are a bunch o' douchebags

I think it's all about the new hiring...
The guy who returned my call this morning said this him... he told me there are some new hiring and they detained the item simply because it has a trigger on it and therefor a receiver.
Anyway... i shall never import any gearboxes anymore...
