Tracing and Marking of SALW
[SALW = Small arms and light weapons]
According to Article 25 of the revised Liechtenstein Weapons Act which entered into force 1 July 2009 manufacturers of firearms or substantial components and accessories thereof are obliged to mark these individually for the purpose of identification and traceability.
The marking is to be put in a way that can only be modified or removed by mechanical methods. It has to include the individual numerical or alphabetical marking and the name of the manufacturer.
