    I am looking at buying this gun:
    https://shop.jkarmy.com/we-g17-g4-bk.html
    The problem is, when I did some research about the gun I ran into a lot of posts about people having their weapons seized before it could be imported into the United States. Why would this be, and would I be safe buying this gun or would it end up getting seized?

    Thanks,
    HorizonIndigo

    It's a Gl*ck. The real steel company hates airsoft, and wants us to be sad, so they don't allow us to have reproductions of their guns. Joke's on them though... M57 is life.

    Cover up any and all trades. That includes the box. Make sure there is an orange tip, and if you're in CA make sure you get SB199 compliant markings.

    If you're really concerned you can have them ship the slide and frame separately.

    I ordered a G18c through JK Army, other than them losing track of my order, it arrived without any trouble.

    Don't believe most of the negative crap you read online.

    To expand on this, the guys that have successful orders don't go online and talk about it really, but most that have had unsuccessful orders post about it a whole lot. If all of the people with successful orders would post as much as the other guys, you would see a lot more positive comments than negative.
