Is it possible to buy a BB air rifle from USA without export licence? If the seller is ready to ship to Canada?

regards
Borislav

I bought a Steel BB Air Pistol from the U.S. with no problems.

But - it was not PAL/R-Pal rated - is yours?

:?

No it is around 400fps so it's not PAL.
Barrels, scopes etc. you can not buy from USA without export licence...
Pyramyd air is sending some NON PAL air guns to Canada...

So it seems OK?

Should be NO problem with shipping it and receiving it here in Canada...

I asked Pyramyd Air the same question and the answer I received is: :D :D :D

We can send any airgun that shoots under 500 fps to CA.

Pyramyd Air is very careful with what air guns it will ship up to Canada.

FYI:

Actually you can ship a BB pistol that shoots over 500 fps up here as it must meet BOTH criteria to be R-Pal rated (OVER 500 fps AND over 5.7 joules of muzzle energy).

A 5.1 grain steel BB can travel up to around 605 fps and still be UNDER 5.7 joules of muzzle energy - and thus be legal to own and use here in Canada.

Thus I could order in a Daisy Powerline 5170 Airstrike pistol rated at 520 fps and it was legal to have it here in Canada (ordered from a private seller).
