no, it WILL get seized by customs. Best thing to do is get age verified if your 18+ and you will have access to the goodies in the classifieds.

heavy fines and possibly jail time. your are essentially smuggling weapons, as airsoft is considered replica firearms

Are you seriously considering smuggling of prohibited items on a public forum that law enforcement and other officials are aware of? Probably not the brightest thing to do.

The clear G&G and ICS you'll find in Canada perform exactly like the full black/metal versions. Otherwise, I would wait the 1 year and get age verified.

How about you consider your options.

1) Continue on your current course of stupidity and travel to the USA, and smuggle back some gear.
1a)Risk possible jail time, Risk losing the vehicle you are in, Risk being CBSA black listed.
2) Shop for Airsoft that is Can or Clearsoft at a local retailer, if they will sell to someone under 18.
3) Wait until you are 18 and maybe you will get age verified.

The part of the gun that is restricted is the part that has the serial number on it (on the real firearm). For most guns, this is the lower reciever which usually include the magwell.. so even if you get all the other parts in, it will do you no good.

Let me point out something else: Airsoft in Canada has been around for a long time. Don't you think if there was an easy (and legal) way to get black airsoft guns into the country we would have found it by now?

ASC, as a community, does not support the aquisition of airsoft guns by minors. You won't find much help here on how to get one.

Yes, people have succeeded in brining them across the border. If you get one in the US, declare it and maybe (5% chance) customs will let you keep it. If you don't declare it, that's smuggling, which is a criminal offence. That means serious fines and/or jail time not to mention a criminal record that will seriously fuck you for life. Don't expect a smuggling charge to magically dissapear when you turn 18. With a record like that, good luck ever getting into the United States ever again.

With that in mind, decide if it's worth it to you to try it -or just do what everyone else does and wait until you are 18.
