Marcado, mantenimiento de registros y localización

¿De qué otra forma permiten estas marcas que las autoridades correspondientes identifiquen y localicen un arma en concreto?

Todas las armas de fuego deben ser registradas, y se emite una guía de posesión de armas, la cual tiene una vigencia de 10 años desde su fecha de emisión. El registro las identifica primordialmente por el número de cada arma, marca, modelo, calibre tipo de arma y sistema, además de otras caracteristicas y menciones de las mismas que ya se ha detallado. Vincula el arma en cuestión con la persona a cuyo nombre se registró el arma, su domicilio, teléfono y Seccional Policial donde se avecina.

Marking, Record Keeping and Tracing

What is another way that these marks allow authorities to identify and trace the weapon?

All firearms must be registered, and buyers are issued a guide [licence?] on weapons, which is valid for 10 years from date of issue. The register identifies each firearm primarily by the number of each weapon, mark, model, calibre and type of weapon system, as well as other features, and mentions the same as those previously detailed. It links the weapon in question to the person whose name was registered to the gun, address, phone number and police stations where they come from.
