Classification of weapons and ammunition

We offer a full classification service for firearms, weapons and ammunition as well as related items such as tear gas canisters and stun guns (electric shock devices), which includes the assessment of the electrical output (voltage).

Our services include function testing and test firing to establish whether a firearm functions correctly or could have performed in a particular manner. We also provide assessments of the potential for conversion of imitation firearms and the capabilities of modified imitation firearms and homemade weapons and ammunition.

Our experts have extensive knowledge of the firearms legislation and the classification of weapons and ammunition is accredited to the ISO 17025 standard.
