Police have seized 170 guns from a central west firearms dealership.
Officers from Lachlan Local Area Command executed a search warrant on the business in Renshaw McGirr Way, Parkes about 9.20am on Thursday.
They took possession of 160 long arms, 10 handguns, a silencer and other items.
Last month, local licensing officers conducted a thorough audit of the dealership and detected numerous breaches of the Firearms Act 1996 relating to the safe storage of firearms.
As a result, the Firearms Registry decided not to renew the dealer’s licence and revoked his personal shooters licence.
Inquiries by local police are ongoing.
