Sales of Surplus Weapons

Large numbers of illegal weapons are smuggled out of the Philippines to various purchasers. A major problem is controlling illegal production in the south of the country, particular in Danao City and Mandaue City in Cebu, where there are more than 3000 gunsmiths at work.

In addition to Danao's two major licensed arms makers, there are many illegal or quasi-legal producers manufacturing 'paltik' or homemade weapons.
