Controls Applicable to Production and Sale

Anyone involved in manufacturing weapons in Argentina must be registered as a manufacturer of arms and/or ammunition with RENAR. Only plants or factories that are registered as such will be granted a licence. Every month, manufacturers are required to submit a weapons production report …

Commercial users must register every purchase or sale of weapons in an official register of operations and submit a quarterly report to RENAR. The report must contain full details of the buyer (who in turn must be registered as a lawful user with RENAR) and of the weapons and/or ammunition being transferred (type of weapon, firing mechanism, make, model, calibre and serial number - type of ammunition, type of tip, make, calibre and batch number) …

Lawful users wishing to remove a weapon from a gunsmith's shop must present their personal user authorization number, which must have been requested previously from RENAR. Those wishing to purchase ammunition must present the ammunition consumption control card issued for each calibre of ammunition and each type of weapon. This card also establishes the maximum amount of ammunition, per calibre, that lawful users may have in their possession.
