Marking of Guns
The licensing authority shall before granting a license require the applicant to produce before him any such gun and thereupon cause the same to be marked on the barrel with some permanent mark whereby the same may afterwards be known and identified (Section 28 (1)).
Any person obliterating, defacing, altering or counterfeiting any such mark shall be guilty of an offence (Section 28 (2)).
