A Norfolk man has pleaded guilty to supplying firearms after police recovered 14 handguns and 29 stun guns.
Jurijs Ragozins, 44, from Saddlebow Road, King's Lynn, pleaded guilty at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday, June 7.
An investigation by the National Crime Agency (NCA) found Ragozins to be in the possession of 14 handguns, ammunition and 29 stun guns.
The handguns were originally blank firing weapons which had been converted to use conventional ammunition.
NCA branch commander Martin Huxley said: "Preventing firearms from reaching the hands of criminals is a key priority for the NCA.

"This was a significant seizure of weapons, and I've no doubt that had we not stepped in they would have been used to commit violent acts on our streets."
Ragonzins was remanded in custody to be sentenced on July 26.
