(2) Any person proposing to manufacture or deal at wholesale in firearms, dangerous devices or ammunition, which person is not the holder of a dealer's license, shall make application for a manufacturer's or wholesaler's license. Such application shall contain the same information required for a dealer's license and any additional information required by the Attorney-General as may be appropriate to administer this Chapter. No manufacturer's license or wholesaler's license shall authorize transfer or delivery within the Republic except to a licensed dealer, manufacturer or wholesaler or to a political subdivision of the Republic or, subject to applicable laws of the Republic, for export.

(3) The office of the Attorney-General shall issue, renew, cancel, deny, suspend or revoke manufacturers' and wholesalers' licenses on the same terms and subject to the same conditions as provided for dealers' licenses.

(4) Every manufacturer shall assign a unique serial number to each firearm manufactured by him and shall inscribe such number in or on the firearm in such manner as will resist removal, alteration, defacement or obliteration. The office of the Attorney-General may make regulations for the style of such serial numbers and for the manner of their inscription.
