It all began during World War II when gunmakers in the town of Danao supplied guerrillas with weapons against the Japanese. Now 10,000 of Danao’s 100,000 residents are involved in the industry. Replicas of M-16, AK-47, Uzi and Ingram sub-machine guns are the most popular firearms. The weapons are later sold to local customers,politicians, military personnel and ordinary civilians. For example, a revolver maybe sold for $ 80 which is already equivalent to a few weeks’ wages. They are also very popular among Japanese Yakuza and Chinese mafia.
