Does this come with the cheap orange plastic flash hider or the black one?
The orange one
Whats the difference between the MP7 and the MP7A1? And what do they consider a NS2 series? I'm somewhat confused, I'm looking at some enhancement parts and these three subcategories are sometimes listed all under Umarex KWA/KSC H&K MP7. Thanks, Tim.
MP7 is the initial release or beta/gen.1 version of the firearm. Since then it evolved to the MP7A1 which is the current production model. There is NO AirSoft made of the original MP7. Whenever you see a description without the 'A1', it is just due to laziness. It is just like how most people say "M-4" when they're referring to the M-4A1. The M-4 was developed from the XM-177E series of the 70's but select-fire with semi-auto and 3rnd-burst only, NOT semi and full-auto, and issued in limited numbers. When M-4A1 came to market it reclaimed full-auto functionality. Granted there are M-4A1 variants with 3rnd-burst, but they are improved versions of the M-4 and not the same thing. Just like MP7 and MP7A1 are not the same thing, albeit they are much closer to each other than M-4 vs. M-4A1. NS2 is a newer gas system created by KSC/KWA for better efficiency. Models like the MP7A1 are new enough that they only come in NS2. KSC/KWA are the manufacturers that actually make the product, whereas Umarex is merely a licenser that pays for the rights to have authentic trademarks on AirSoft/airguns. Similarly - Cybergun is also just a licensing company. To my knowledge neither of those 2 actually manufacturer the products.
So I see the FPS is within the requirements of guns here in Canada, but I am just wondering if this will ship, I understand there a minimal chance of it getting seized, but I am just wondering is there any additional measures I can take to make sure it is not confiscated
Even if any AirSoft or airgun encounters a problem or holdup at C.B.S.A., it won't be simply seized unless it's illegal (prohibited). They would send you a letter informing of the product's hold and reason for it, giving you options of how to handle the item. You can discuss with them and verify that it (in the case of the KWA MP7A1) falls under the classification of "uncontrolled firearm" and should be permitted for importation. Some C.B.S.A. agents may be unfamiliar with either the regulations or specific items, but cordial communication will have them simply double-check. Worst case scenario they will escalate by sending to the R.C.M.P. C.F.C. to test muzzle velocity, once it's confirmed within reg's it will be released and continue on its way. There are no "additional measures" to perform. Just know the laws and never order an AirSoft or airgun that's prohibited.
When you click on an item on Pyramyd's website and it states "ships to Canada", you'll be fine. Just contact Pyramyd if there's any problems getting it to you.
Yes we can ship it to Canada and you should not have any issues as the product is not in violation of any of the restrictions we have listed.
