I just brought back an Umarex via Checked in luggage to Mumbai. ( this one : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HR0v5Z3bLis)

The gun was so heavy and looked so real, that they took time to let me go, but they did let me go! (after taking 100% taxes obviously)
But they did bring me to a room where i could see at least 50 airsoft ( even the really cheap ones), its as if they don't care they see a gun they take it.

i bought at 170 euros and they charged me extra 170 euros, so a total cost of around 24,000 inr. ( wich is wayyyy wayy cheaper than the indian prices)

Now the other thing is that, where in mumbai, will you be able to play with it, even if its an airsoft, the guns look so real and is quite powerfull compared to the other airguns i had ( 4J ) that i can get in trouble really easily, so the down part is that since i bought it, i never got the chance yet to play with it!!

New Delhi, Feb 16 (PTI) As many as 32 air rifles and pistols which were imported from the US have been seized by the Customs officials here.

These pistols had come in two parcels from the US and during their examination at the Foreign Post Office, seven air rifles and 25 air pistols were recovered, Commissioner of Air Cargo Export S R Baruah said today.

"These pistols are made of metal body and strongly suspected that it can be modified to fire bullets. These pistols can also be used by unscrupulous elements in highway robberies and to scare the people," he said.

These seized guns are of Pietro Beretta Gardone and Parabellum Pistol, models and capable of firing upto 274 metres, the official said.

These parcels were detected earlier this month. In another case reported last month, the officials had seized spare parts of air guns like barrels, firing mechanism, wooden and plastic buts, high pressure gas cylinders from examination of six parcels.

In this case, the importer's premises were searched and some incriminating documents had been seized, Baruah said.

These spare parts are allowed to be imported by national Rifle Association for supply to eligible shooters, renowned shooters, Arjuna Award winners and other target shooters in accordance with guidelines issued by the Home Ministry.

The importer during investigation has admitted that he does not possessed valid documents, he said.

Over 20,000 speed post and registered parcels including letter mails are being handled in a day at Foreign Post office here. These includes letter mails, bonafide gifts, goods, drugs, medicines and other items.

How was your experience? Did you buy it? If not, are you planning to buy it through courier?

Club Membership is easy to get and custom-wallahs are not going to bite you. Worst case scenario is that they will confiscate your gun and you'll get it back in the appeals process. Appeals process is also fairly simple and if you give proper arguments in writing then they can't refuse you.

It was surely allowed a few months ago and my cousin imported a Dan Wesson CO2 BB .177 in 2.5 inches. I'll check the latest situation and let you know.

I will shortly post a detailed process that you need to undergo. Meanwhile, please share your location as I'll be happy to arrange FREE-OF-COST lawyer to accompany and assist you with the customs clearing, preferably without any bribes in your city.

Also, let me know how old is the receipt, and in whose name was your gun purchased? Please go ahead with this, we will all help you.
