It has nothing to do whit the fact that is a AIRSOFT, firearm etc item. It's because they might think it's a filled gaz container and that is prohibited in many air shipment. Usually they do not ship under pressure containers.

Tell them it's a empty gas container and everything should be ok.

Exclamation

So my mags showed up! Thanks Everyone for your help and support.

Heres the story if you are interested:
1) mags didn't get delivered

2) uncompany sent me notice of prohibited item

3) fedex confirmed prohibited item during phone call

4) attempted to return to sender, then found out it was gono cost me $42.32 to do so, resulting in a "0.978 USD" return according to Uncompany

5) sent a email to fedex covering my situation and asking for some sort of proof from customs that my mags were infact prohibited

6) email got forwarded 3 times to a Sr. Customs regulatory specialists within fedex

7) They responded with multiple issues with the package. "quote":
"The package contained a toy part inside along with the magazine. The part that was included inside the package fall under the prohibition from entering into Canada. There is a clause in the Canadian customs regulation that prohibits arms that may be mistaken for real arms from being imported.
Air guns and their parts fall under this clause because they can be modified or adapted to fit onto a weapon. Person authorized to import these commodities must obtain an import permit from the RCMP.
Customs examined the package and refused to release the package.
They have grounds to seize the shipment as there was a false declaration on the customs documentation and there was an undeclared prohibited item included inside the package.
They gave us the option of returning this item or having it destroyed under customs supervision.
FedEx is only going with the instructions we received from customs.
Hoping this gives you the answer you were looking for. "


8) I addressed all the suspecious things like extra parts included other then mags, false declaration and once again asked for customs documentation

9) case got transfered to vancouver.... didn't hear anything from them

10) Mags just showed up at my doorstep

11) Victory!

Alex, I have never bought a mag from inside the country, AEG or GBB/GBBR. No issues at all.

Yes, UNCompany is indeed a joke. Also quite dishonest as well! Went to the store to buy WE Mags and asked if they were all Gen2 and they said yes. Brought them back and gave some to an ASC member and told me they were some Gen1s )at the time I didnt know how to tell).

As for bringing mags back in, it shouldnt be a problem. Just none with dummy bullets.
