Surveying Europe’s Production and Procurement of Small Arms and Light Weapons Ammunition
The Cases of Italy, France, and the Russian Federation
Through case studies of three states—Italy, France, and the Russian Federation—we assess their respective practices in the production; procurement; export; and, when possible, consumption of ammunition. The resulting data not only provides a scale for the industry as a whole, but also reveals the realities of transparency and opaqueness in the ammunition market.
