Marking, Record Keeping and Tracing - Marking
The requirements for the marking of firearms and essential components of firearms are established by a regulation of the Government of the Republic. According to this regulation, a person engaging in the manufacture of weapons or essential components of firearms is required to mark a firearm or an essential component of a firearm with a marking according to the requirements in such a manner that the removal of the marking would be technically complicated or impossible.
The markings consists of the name of the manufacturer or an internationally recognizable (licensed) identification, the original serial number and calibre designation, the country code (EST), in the case of newly manufactured firearms, and the type of firearm or a generally recognizable identification. This Regulation also provides specifications with respect to the place to be stamped or etched.
