If I send a gun using Canada Post, will there be a chance it might get confiscated? or damaged?

As long as its from a Canadian adress to another Canadian adress, no. Well, and if it's properly packaged, too.

chance for damaged should be consider, a good package job will solve those but better buy insurance to cover it than got a mess up story with your customer later.

well, you won't let them see it. Your gun will be packed in a box and wrap with the brown paper or other type of wrapping, the best way is to flip the box to ther other side that doesn't have gun logo. Make sure that you don't tell what it is inside the box also it's not their job to ask as well.

I'd put it like this if it shoots bb's its a toy model, if it shoots bullets its a real firearm.

Oh okay thanks for clearing things up. I thought you needed a license to import CANsoft. MODS please delete this!

No.
That's why everyone and their dog is selling clear-receivered airsoft now.

I don't understand why you would want to order a CANsoft gun from HK where you get charged huge shipping fees.. It would be more expensive than buying from a Canadian retailer..

Do what ever the hell you want outside of here, but these forums aren't meant to facilitate you access to guns.
