Spanish police seize €10mn worth of vintage black-market arms, including anti-aircraft weapons

Among the 10-12,000 seized weapons some are capable of bringing down aircraft, says Spanish authorities.
Among the weapons seized were vintage Smith & Wesson revolvers, CETME, Bergmann, and Beretta rifles, and even heavier anti-aircraft machine guns.
Police arrested four men and woman – all Spanish nationals – who had been operating a sophisticated trafficking network under the front of a historical weapons workshop that bought supposedly decorative firearms. The purchased weapons were then restored and sold on the black market throughout Europe.
