As the title says, how legal is it to import an ELGM?

Does it look like a piece of tubes to you ? if not and even soccer mum can tell that it's grenade launcher then you are in trouble. They are not stupid, keep that in mind. Maybe the Madbul XM203 can import but not EGLM.

I'll answer your question with another question.

How legal is it to import a SCAR?

Even it's one of Pus's SCAR, try to import one yourself then you will see how hard it get through custom.

The first couple of clear lower SCARs got through but CBSA has already caught on, it all depends on whether or not the agent inspecting your goods is up to speed.

Here's how it works, if it resembles a real firearm (something that discharges a projectile) then it's a replica firearm of which is a prohibted device.

Go download yourself a copy of D-Memo 19 this is he CBSA Bible

That's not a fair comparison at all. M203s used to flow through the border freely. It was only the past couple years they were reclassified as restricted firearms.

That was not a stupid question. Your condescension is irritating.

I'll go as far as answering your question with another question.

Why do you have to always pretend you're smarter than anyone else ? Your question made no freaking sense what so ever. Other than the fact that the EGLM is usually mounted on a SCAR they looking nothing like the same. Just stop replying please....stop.

I'm pretty sure some CBSA people could be confused with the EGLM since it might look like some sort of Nerf gun to them but I would still consider it a gamble.

Will definitely agree with you on that one, I think if you stuck a giant Nerf foam dart in where the M203 would be they would definitely fall for it.

...Now that that information is publicly available they're probably going to catch on pretty fast. Remember there are CBSA agents combing through here not to mention the people who probably work for CBSA themselves.

Posting in a thread where Styrak got the short end of the stick.

For the OP, the EGLM looks to much like a grenade launcher. It's your money to waste, but personally i would not do it.




The madbull one on the other hand is something to 'tempt faith' on.
