7. Marking of Arms

(1) Whenever application is made for a licence for any arm not marked with letters or figures or in such other manner as that the same may be readily identified, the officer to whom application is made may, before issuing the licence applied for, cause such arms to be marked with some permanent mark whereby the same may be afterwards known and identified, but in such manner as far as possible not to injure or disfigure the same.

Any person who wilfully obliterates, defaces, alters, counterfeits or forges any such mark, or fraudulently marks any arm with any mark resembling or intended to resemble any mark used for marking arms under this section, shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years.

(2) Any person who wilfully obliterates, defaces, alters, counterfeits or forges
a manufacturer's serial number on any arm shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years.
