I call BS.

I know a whole bunch of machinists. Most are past 40, because milling and making parts is not something you can learn at school. You learn the techniques, but can't learn the skills. At 23, you would have done a basic 2 years machinist course, and maybe have 3-4 years of good experience in the market.

Now I know a guy that makes parts for Diemaco... that is Colt Canada just so you know. He is now 38 and managed to get the job there after a whole bunch of background check and a good 10+ years of experience.

Say, if you can make a few for you and your friends, what machine do you plan to use? And what tolerance do you think would be needed to fit most "M4" you can find on US retaillers? Running a CNC or all old-school?


Making a mold for clear injection would cost about 20-25k to have the mold made. That does not include the design or the first production run. Now to deserve a mold, you would need to make at the very least 6-7k units, because a piece like the receiver would require at least a 4 pieces mold and setup for that kind of mold is not cheap. That is implying that you have contacts in China to have the parts made between two runs in a larger factory. Making the injection local would raise the cost by about 20%, and that is all that you could dream to get in profits from the sale of theses... And they are clear in a country where it is easy as hell to get a clear receiver, but everyone wants to change to a black receiver. I GAVE my ICS clear receiver to a random guy that broke his. It's worth that much.

I don't see why everyone tries to find ways to circumvent the AV system with even more illegal methods than smuggling an entire gun.

Because they have nothing better to do than come up with some kind of wacky alternative to suit them better than.. Well, the sheer convenience of what we have now, for some reason... Somehow?

I have no idea either.

CBSA told me that even if I had a "Cansoft" gun, I would be able to leave the country, but they would never let me back in with it.

Airsoft guns are considered Replica Firearms because they are exact replicas of real firearms. You can argue the interpretation of this act but I think the OPP does a better one. I called the OPP and CBSA from overseas to ask about bringing airsoft back to Canada.

1. cannot be over 500fps, if above, must be registered and is considered a firearm.
2. must be noticeably a toy (by someone with knowledge of firearms)
3. If not noticably a toy, the owner must have proof that the air gun was purchased before 1989.
4. If not noticably a toy, and the owner can prove purchase was prior to 1989, ownership may not be passed to another individual.
5. Exempt from these laws are Military, Law enforcement, and those holding a "movie prop permit."


Our airsoft guns are mostly as illegal as a butterfly or switchblade knife. If you don't declare at the border and get caught, you might face some serious crap importing "Prohibited" devices into Canada.

Seriously. I don't know anyone who would actually pay money for a clear reciever.

A police Officer or Mil would have to prove then that bringing the replica into Canada was "in the course of the public officer’s duties or employment".

I'm pretty sure that if a police force or a CF unit needed replicas for training purposes, they would order it themselves and through the proper channels... Not just send some random Officer or member to go across the border and buy them...

Unless you're a CFSC instructor you cannot import it for the purpose of education

CF Unit last check they use something similiar to a bluegun which can be imported into Canada last I heard.

Exactly...........This is what happens when you try to offer info on these things.........


Like I said, I called them, talked to them (the ones who enforce these laws), and I'm the one with wrong info? LOL

Correction, yes it is 98, typo there :S

The Joules thing is very grey. I had a Spud Gun that shot around 12 joules but was not siezed by the OPP that jumped on my ass ATF style, in fact, they were going to give it back until I agreed to sign it over to be destroyed. (I WAS over 18)

The exempt thing is definitely "while conducting their duties"


The point I was trying to get through to our future smuggler was that he should consider the many interpretations of the "airsoft" laws before losing time and money like I did. I was literally told that it depends on the CBSA officer's knowledge of firearms whether they sieze it or not. You can appeal it, sure, but that's after they send it to Ottawa RCMP to be tested, taken apart, and most likely returned non-functioning 6 months later.

I'm sure Different POEs are easier by car than by air.

Or they use Simunition with their service rifle of their own firearms.

Also thats dated because there has been an amendment to the part that relates to the fps/muzzle energy.

http://cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publications/...9-13-2-eng.pdf

Also were not jumping down your throat, alot of times it can be seen as that through online medium which does not convey emotion well, but we just try and stop misinformation which Im sure were all guilty of at one point or another.

About him making the receivers. Couldn't he vacuum mold it? (Make his own custom mold from the dimensions that the internet says or something.) Or couldn't he frankencase it? (Frankencasing is taking multiple premade plastic peices, sanding them, bondoing together, sanding, shaping, etc.). That technique is how alot of casemodders for videogame systems make theirs.
