another question about guns.

hello every one, i have been looking for joining in to an airsoft or paintball team (im still deciding) for a while, you know looking for PROS and CONS of each other.
rigth know im not age verified but it will hapen when i choose.

im not a complete noob, i have played paintball and airsoft in my country for a while before leaving (thats why i speak this crapy english).

ok, my question is : whats the real diference between the canadian ICS guns and the normal line?
i have done a lot of research and i havent find the answer :banghead:


tanks for your time.
sorry if i have been rude or something, i dont know how to be polite or make jokes in english.
again, thank you so much.

Pretty sure it's just the clear lower, everything else is the same. Also, once age verified you will have access to all the full black guns you'd be used to from your country.

But the prices will make you cry. The state of airsoft in Canada makes the prices of the goodies 1.5-3x that of international airsoft prices.

Yeah... especially when someone comes to school in a BMW 5 or Benz.... (Although the guy who had his BMW was actually a pretty chill guy and not the kind of person you'd expect to roll up to school in a BMW, and he didn't rub it in peoples faces)

Mommies credit card will still be there even through the economic times we're going through right now.

Anyways... Back on topic, OP:

If you have any airsoft guns currently the only thing I can say that might help you out/save some money is read up on the laws of Canada, figure out which parts are restricted/prohibited, strip your gun down to the bare parts and bring those over the border, leaving or selling all restricted/prohibited parts in your home country and once in Canada reassemble and look for restricted/prohibited parts in country.

Examples of restricted parts. Sound suppressors ("silencers"), Lower receiver for M4/16, upper receiver for MP5 (any part of the gun which hold the firing mechanism and has a serial number on it's real steel counterpart).

I have heard the Canadian ICS guns are not the same standard as their regular metal built line and actually cheaper in many aspects when I first inquired about the ICS Mp5 from several people. Some can clarify.

Ah, that sucks man.. Well, with that kind of a budget, you could most probably find a very decent AEG here on the forums, obviously assuming you actually want to get back into airsoft and that you proceed with the age verification process. Get to know the forums, theres alot of information with regards to the legal issues concerning airsoft in Canada, which will help you get a better understanding of the reasons everything is so ridiculously expensive here haha. If you need any help, there are tons of experienced players from this forum who would be more than happy to help you out! Cheers!

Yo.
I'm n00b myself, trying to scrounge up the cash to get a good starter gun. Been looking at some Canadian sources for airsoft stuff, thought they might help you out.

Another place to look online other than the ASC classifieds and sites like Mach 1 Airsoft would be Craigslist, a popular online classifieds website. Since I'm not Age Verified yet, and neither are you, it's an option to consider.
Prices, like any classified section, can be steep, but depend on the seller - look carefully and you could find some good deals on nice guns/parts/gear. Plus, you don't have to deal with customs/immigration hassles - just find the local listings for your area and start searching.
Downside is that its basically all previously used equipment, so it may be worn-down a bit.

Another place I'm looking at is BuyAirsoft.ca. Wide selection of guns at good prices, plus they're based out of Calgary - no need to worry about getting your gear confiscated by Border Services.
My one big frustration with them is that they always seem to have stock problems - half of the crap they offer is usually out of stock. They do offer ICS guns, but they're *all* out of stock. Most of their "Pro-Grade" AEGs are.

Hope that helps you re-start your arsenal.
In the meantime, try and get Age Verified. I ought to as well...mumble grumble.

It's been 4 months since the supposed "takeover" of buyairsoft so you can probably start fresh with them. I mean yeah they did have a splotchy record before but not that it's under new management I don't think it deserves the stigma that it has currently.
