The upper receiver. Please don't buy from across the border. Its not worth the time and effort. We arent very fond of people doing this.

If your moving from the states to here, you might aswell leave the gun there. The price it is to get a lower receiver here, will cost the similar to what you can buy the gun for. (Or, heck. You could play without a lower receiver and look like a tool who has a 90% complete gun.)

Also: Incase you ask, don't try to manufacture your own receiver. Its illegal.

wtf is it with these people?

it's the upper, which is metal and is where the serial numbers are located, don't try it, get av'd and buy your guns in country like everyone else.

not 18? no av, no guns.

So even if the airsoft gun does not have the serial numbers on it, it's still illegal, right?

Still illegal even if it's blank. Customs can take the lowers if they were a bitch..

Its because of the fact that its real steel counterpart carries the serial number on said part.

Whats the point of this thread, if I may ask?

Yes it is still illegal, the restricted part is wherever the serial numbers on THE REAL GUN would be

whether or not there are numbers is of no consequence

Maybe he has special contacts in the injection moulding industry and he can have any airsoft gun he wants made and with better quality

or maybe he's just another dumb kid that's trying to bypass the av system

who knows?

The was that the Canadian border services agents do their job is that have been given a general order to seize anything that they deem to be a firearm or replica of a firearm.

The upper receiver is the restricted part on a scar. I see that you have made the appropriate edit to your post, however please do not speak on behalf of others in the community, I'm not very fond of people saying of what I am not fond of and I'm sure you are not either.

In Canada we have retailers who carry airsoft guns that have their respective restricted lowers made from clear ploymere or plastic, for the time being this method is managing to circumvent the CBSA's definition of a replica.

For example, say you work in donation sorting facility and your job was to remove anything coming off the truck that was the color orange. Regardless of the fact of whether or not the item was dangerous or not, if its orange you remove it. IE Orange cup, remove it. You are working with a set parameter, and so are the staff at the CBSA, anything they deem that resembles a firearm or replica fire arm will be seized, quiet possibly even if it has a clear lower or no lower at all. Its all based on the interpretation of the person doing the job.

Although its not recommend to attempt to have an airsoft gun without its restricted lower shipped to you from outside of Canada, there is no that will stop you from trying, after all its your money. I see in this thread that it has already been recommended to you numerous times to not do so, the decision is yours.

Your better off saving the paper. You are not the first to attempt and will not be the last. Unfortunately there is no kind way to say this but you would be wasting your time in doing so.
