The most common illegal assault rifle is the Australian-made self-loading rifle (SLR), closely followed by the US-made M16, both of which come from PNG Defence Force (PNGDF) stocks. Most of the remainder are AR15s, obtained from PNG police. The Kalashnikov AK-47 and its variants are rare, with ammunition even more so.
