Several underground gun workshops in the coastal Philippine city of Danao were shut down recently following police raids.
Their skilled gunsmiths were put back to work by a local arms manufacturer which sells the weapons on to the USA, Australia and Europe.
But anti-gun activists in the Philippines are worried that their country is getting too used to living with a culture of guns.
