Beijing to Toronto

Hello, my friend from HK bought me some airsoft accessories and is coming to Toronto. He will be flying from HK to Toronto, and transferring flights in between at Beijing, China.

Do you think its safe for him to take home few airsoft accessories (scope mounts x3, green laser, rear sights, 5" metal barrel) in his luggage (mind you, this is the luggage that goes in the cargo bay of the plane and NOT onboard)? When he is transferring flights at Beijing, the luggage goes directly to his next flight to Toronto.

Either he takes this risk and brings the stuff with him in his luggage or he can mail it back to Toronto which will take ~3 months. Which method do you think will be safer? Thanks

Whatever he brings whether safe or not, make sure he declares it in Toronto and it's under his exemption amount.

Safest way is to drop in the mail. It always took about a week to get my stuffs fron Honk Kong ; why yours will take that long ?? Maybe customs issues but not the shipping by itself !!!

There are no metal bodies, no silencers, no magazines. My main concern is when the luggage is in Beijing. Even though the luggage is directly transferred to the flight to Toronto, im worried about the customs at Beijing b/c China is a communist country. Im not too worried about the customs in Canada cause all the items he is bringing back is legit.

To be more specific, here are parts that my friend is bringing from Hk --> Beijing --> Toronto

1. Prometheus EG Barrel 363mm
2. King Arms L300 Visible Green Laser Sight w/ Throw lever Ring
3. King Arms Remote Pressure Switch for King Arms Green Laser
4. Bomber Flip-Up Rear Sight (LMT Ver.)
5. Bomber Tactical ACOG QD Mount
6. Bomber Tactical QD Mount
7. Bomber Tactical Cantilever QD Mount
8. Element QD front Grip (Larue style)
9. Element Aluminium 1 piece barrel extension (-14mm)
