Sometimes, during searches and other activities, the authorities find a variety of self-made or modified weapons available to criminals. Dangerous weapons may not always be recognized as such.
In the forensic laboratory of the National Bureau of Investigation, between 30-40 home made weapons are investigated annually. However, the figure is not the whole truth, as some of the weapons can be studied directly by the police without the work of the laboratory.
