uhhh, Just opened up a whole can of worms.

Its as simple as that the licences needed to import the guns are rare, expensive and technically, even with the licences, you can't sell the guns you import.

There was a retailer a few year ago who was raided by CBSA and convicted to a few years in prison

I'm pretty sure that's his choice, as to how he runs his business. The last retailer I saw openly selling full metal on-line (Mopic) is no longer on-line. Take from it what you will, rumors abound.

EDIT: And even I don't actually know anything beyond rumors and wild-ass guesses.

I've done alot of research, especially here. The laws about owning and importing are well documented, but I couldn't find a single place to buy a full metal gun which abided by those laws. This is the first time I've been able to find one.

And yea...hoppers are annoying. I've been thinking of selling my X7 for a rap4 just for that reason, a friend has one, it's a tank. .68 calibre paitnballs, same as a regular gun, but no visible tank and no hopper. Only thing that's stopping me is the horror stories about rap's customer service.

You actually haven't done enough research. 007 is located in Canada but they are stop selling black gun since last year due the risk of import replica gun selling to public also there is an example of retailer went to court because of that.

You don't need to e-mail them, they won't have it in stock and selling to you,.

Yar, I e-mailed them a month or two ago, so I know they won't sell them. Just want to know the exact reason why (if they'll bother to tell me).

There are retailers who sell full black guns, but only to those AV'd on this site, here is some reading material on 007 airsoft

http://www.airsoftcanada.com/search....archid=2893080

check out the FAQ section for info on importing, the law, etc. etc.

Technically...

Unless you possess the Fire Arms Business License.
No person is legally permitted to transfer a replica firearm (or any gun requiring that license) to a person whom does not posses that license.

Basically, sure I can import airsoft with my license. But I cannot technically/legally by the book sell or give it to you if you do not have that license.
(No I do not have a license)

Ken (007airsoft) chooses to really obey the book in my opinion on this one.

Read basically all of them, and read the stickied ones twice.

Hate to revive an old thread but isn't rap4 basically a replica? It almost looks the same as any full metal airsoft gun but it just shoot's paintballs?
Just wondering =)

Thanks
Geoff

Yeah the RAP4 and RAM are prohibited for importation (however if you got one in before the CBSA prohibited them for importation then you're all good).

#1 apparently you havent done alot of research ESPECIALLY here as youve asked a question that been asked a disgustingly large amount of times and has even been stickied if im not correct.(Strange little thing called a forum search has been invented to help find answers to your questions. Also airsoft is a sport in case you havent looked around on the net its played in possibly hundreds of countries and there are teams and large scale games that put some international paintball tournaments to shame.).

#2 Exactly full metal/black guns are replica firearms and prohibited from being imported by anyone without the proper licenses. Want a full metal gun? get avd. Plan on just shooting shit and not playing a game? Get a pellet gun cheaper, it also minimizes the risk of you being seen with a replica firearm in public and possibly involving police resulting in negative publicity for our community and sport.

#3. RAP4 paintball guns are still classified as replica firearms as they arm created in molds identical to their real steel counter parts and are usually full metal and wood depending on the gun, thus it being seized and your money not being refunded.

So in all if you dont plan on getting AV'd and you want something to shoot shit with get a pellet gun.

I heard if the airsoft gun shot over 440 fps it was aloud across the border because it could cause serious bodily harm making it a uncontrolled firearm? Or was i misinformed?
