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:
1. Distinctive marking or device; exception; waiver; adjustments and changes
2. (1) 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.
(2) 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.
(3) The Secretary is authorized to make adjustments and changes in the marking system provided for by this section, after consulting with interested persons.
Airsoft Tiger11hk installs a blaze orange plastic flash-hider on most model AEGs, and also ships the original flash-hider to you as well. This will allow the gun to comply with the law and make it past customs. You can choose to replace the blaze orange flash-hider with the original one, though we encourage you not to take your airsoft gun out into public should you choose to do this. On some guns like the MP5SD series, there is no flash-hider so we are forced to paint a thin stripe of orange on the silencer muzzle. Similarly, gas blowback handguns and revolvers also have their tips painted orange.
