SALW in possession of the Israeli armed forces are duly marked and recorded.
The relevant Israeli industries mark SALW as an integral part of the production
process. The marking is done by turnery, in accordance with accepted international standards. It includes data such as: the type/name of the weapon, its catalog number, caliber, serial number, the name of the manufacturer, the country of manufacture (for guns marketed in the US, the marking also includes the name and address of the importer).
Imported SALW are identified and recorded upon entry into Israel. The records
include the catalog number, the name of the manufacturer and the country of
manufacture. A SALW without marking is marked by turnery, in accordance with
accepted international standards, before entering into Israel.
[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
