That's a negative. We don't service products from Canada because we can't guarantee CA custom will let it through.

Yeah, as allizard said, don't ever try that. Canada Boarder Services WILL confiscate it, destroy it, send you a letter, and flag your name. The chances of getting it through in both directions is highly unlikely. You do NOT want to gain their attention, as every package you have coming in/out of the counrty will be inspected from that point on. This has happens to some people I know that stupidly thought "I'll just try"... bad idea.
Unfortunately, the KWA warranty here in Canada is worthless (not KWA's fault... thank-you Kim Campbell  :thumbsdown: )

Best you could hope for is tech advice over the phone or if you find a problem and it is an obvious workmanship thing, the KWA people may do good by you and send replacement parts.

Go to a store or retailer that sells airsoft and buy it. Not trying to be funny here, but seriously, once a retailer has it in Canada, it is perfectly fine to sell it. This issue is that as a private citizen, YOU cannot import or export airsoft. A retailer has to jump through all the right hoops, paperwork etc. and he brings it in, in full view of RCMP and CBSA, then all is legal.

Another ways to get it is "Gun Running"  That is of course illegal and risky.
