Analysis of the Australian Crime Commission's National Firearm Trace Database

The NFTD, the primary data source for this study, is a compilation of unit record data on some unregistered firearms recovered by federal, state and territory police agencies…

- modifications made to the firearm;
- the country in which the firearm was manufactured and date of import;
- registration history;
- whether the firearm was subject to the 1996 gun buyback (long-arms) or the 2003 handgun buyback;
