  2. Are Airsoft Guns legal?

    Yes! Airsoft guns are legal in most countries without the need for a license, including the United States (except in a few States), England, France, Norway, Sweden, Argentina, Russia, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, and many other places.

    Some countries such as the United States requires that all imported airsoft guns have painted orange barrel tips. Other countries like England and France require nothing at all and airsoft guns can be imported in their original state.
    *Note that on some airsoft guns, there is no flash hider, or it is not removable. In those instances, we will paint the tip orange. Removing the orange paint is possible with paint thinner but again, we do not encourage it for legal reasons.

  3. Is Airsoft legal in Canada / Australia / New Zealand / Germany / Singapore / Malaysia / Indonesia / Thailand ?

    In Canada and Germany, only SEMI-AUTO guns are allowed and government approval or authorization are needed for importation. Even if modifying a full-auto gun into a semi-auto shooting gun, it will still be confiscated by the customs.

    In Australia(South Australia, Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory) / Indonesia and New Zealand, government permits or registrations are needed to import or own airsoft guns.
    In Australia (Tasmania, Western Australia, Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales) / Thailand / Malaysia and Singapore, airsoft guns are completely banned and no permits will be issued by the government.

    *Some customers ask if we can ship guns to these countries/states in pieces and what is the chances of success.

    Shipping in disassembled pieces using separate packages into Canada / Australia is possible, but we do not guarantee 100% success. If you decided to do so, we are happy to help. However if a seizure does occur, we cannot be held responsible for refunds or re-shipments. The risks are borne entirely by the customer.

    These are for references only, confirm with your local law enforcement agencies if you have any concerns.

  4. Which countries or states consider airsoft as illegal?

    Airsoft is considered illegal in countries such as Singapore, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Germany (only semi-auto airsoft guns are legal, full automatic airsoft guns are banned), Australia and certain states within the United States (e.g., New York City Metro (5 boroughs), Michigan, Washington DC).

    We have, however, been successful in making deliveries to certain countries / cities / states where airsoft is considered illegal. Enforcement of this law varies from country to country, and state to state.

    *There may be changes of the laws. Please check with your local council for any updates.

  5. Customs Issues

    Airsoft is legal in most countries, including the US, UK and most other countries in Europe. Airsoft is legal in Canada but Canadian customs have chosen to prohibit importation through mail-order and as such, we do not guarantee any sort of gun shipments there. Parts and accessory shipments to Canada are acceptable.

    Our airsoft guns are shipped in unaltered form to all countries where airsoft is legal. This means that the guns have all original trademarks (where they are engraved by the manufacturer) and no orange paint of any kind is applied. The one exception is the United States, where laws require that airsoft guns are marked to indicate that they are not real weapons. The US law states as follows:

    According to the regulation of the US Customs, the following applies:
    Distinctive marking or device; exception; waiver; adjustments
    and changes

    Except as provided in paragraph (2) or (3), each toy, look-alike, or imitation firearm shall have as an integral part, permanently affixed, a blaze orange plug inserted in the barrel of such toy, look-alike, or imitation firearm. Such plug shall be recessed no more than 6 millimeters from the muzzle end of the barrel of such firearm.

    The Secretary of Commerce may provide for an alternate marking or device for any toy, look-alike, or imitation firearm not capable of being marked as provided in paragraph (1) and may waive the requirement of any such marking or device for any toy, look-alike, or imitation firearm that will only be used in the theatrical, movie or television industry.
    The Secretary is authorized to make adjustments and changes in the marking system provided for by this section, after consulting with interested persons.
