airsoft laws

Hi I'm thinking of getting a cyma ak47 from airsoftgi or pyramidair will this be confiscated by customs before it gets to canada? Are there any laws I should know about? I've tried to search laws but no luck. Can anyone help me?

Thanks

There is a a thread directly below yours titled
"Bought airsofts in another country - how to get them home?"

This is a direct quote from the initial post.

The same statement applies to outside of country importation. If it looks like a real gun it will be confiscated.

If you are interested in more info, please read about airsoft and importation here:

Sure there is. You have to be over 18 and get Age Verified by one of the ASC verifiers. Once that's done, a whole new world opens.

Yeah there are other ways. Through the vast number of retailers and the classifieds. It's easy to get stuff if you know where to look. Although to get access you must be AV'ed so I don't know if that's an option for you or not.

Sure there is, Get Age Verified, and scan the classified adverts, and shop away.

As for Canadian Law, or the psuedo law that various Government Agencies claim is the Law. Oh well, it sucks but we are all in the same boat.

If you are going import, only NON RESTRICTED parts.
