Container Full Of Assault Rifles And Grenade Launchers Headed To USA, Seized In Spain

The Firearm Blog – by Nicholas C

On August 4, the Risk Analysis Unit (UAR) Custom Algeciras noticed a suspicious container headed out to the US by ocean freight. The Bill Of Lading indicated dismantled weapons. However the UAR decided to seize the container for a full inspection. This is common for ocean freight and customs. I used to work for a Freight Forwarder and we imported containers of shipments from Asia. US Customs often runs random exams/inspections on containers. They can be as simple as a full container x-ray or in this case a full inspection and every item is pulled from the container and matched up with the packing list and invoice.  

The UAR pulled this container and found it full of Sig 553s. 737 of them. Along with 72 Swiss made grenade launchers.

  1. JDI firearms imports these items and I did a search. There was discussion on pre-orders on facef**k in Oct 2015 re launchers/553s. Don’t know if these are their weapons or have anything to do with them, but previous history of the occupying govt/media leads me to believe they got something to do with this. Quite possibly 100% “legal” by even their f’g laws and is being distorted to generate fear.

  2. The were probably going to the FBI so they could be used to entrap some poor guy of an ethnic group the government wanted to demonize.

  3. “On August 4, the Risk Analysis Unit (UAR) Custom Algeciras noticed a suspicious container…”

    DEFINE ‘SUSPICIOUS’.

    Someone snitched.
