hey guys. you can get these off e-bay for roughly $20.00 bucks and more. but I wondered if they were legal to be shipped to good old strict ruled Canada from china. because when I click buy now a big square box comes up saying "it looks like this item is restricted for export under the international traffic in arms regulations."i wanted to check here before I buy one. and if any one uses them are they any good. thanks.

Find a different buyer. There isn't anything illegal about that sight. But they will end up canceling the order. If you place it.

FYI you can buy that sight off amazon already in Canada for 29 + Free shipping over 35$.

thanks. I just went back to ebay and clicked buy it now on about 10 different sellers of these and that same box came up on all of them. has any one got them off of ebay. I checked amazon but figured I,d try and save a few bucks by ordering from china-- because they look like the same ones and probably are on amazon.

I haven't ordered dot sights from ebay since Dec. So must be a new policy.

I e-mailed the seller and he said they can be shipped to Canada. I'll probably give one a try. I have a couple of the reflex sights which are good but they are a bit big for a pistol.

did any body notice the new gimmicky ones on e-bay also. the lens part flips up and down. looks like a nice big square lens -- but these ones are around the $50.00 range. and not so good reviews.

Nope not just for airsoft. Fancy designs and colors are more for sport shooters. And people that do like action shooting. IPSC is a big fancy odd color guns shooting sport.

But those sights are real. Called flip dot sights. Its for when you want a reddot but you dont want the bulk, or have it snag on stuff.
