GUN DATA CODES
SECTION 1--MAKE (MAK) FIELD CODES
Section 1.5 contains MAK Field codes listed alphabetically by gun manufacturer. If a make is not listed, the
code ZZZ should be entered as characters 1 through 3 of the MAK Field with the actual manufacturer's name
appearing in positions 4 through 23. This manufacturer's name will appear as entered in any record
response. If the MAK Field code is ZZZ and positions 4 through 23 are blank, the MAK Field will be translated
as MAK/UNKNOWN in the record response. For unlisted makes, the CJIS Division staff should be contacted
at 304-625-3000 for code assignments. Additional coding instructions can be found in the Gun File chapter of
the NCIC 2000 Operating Manual.
1.2 MAK FIELD CODE FOR U.S. MILITARY-ISSUE WEAPONS
For firearms (including surplus weapons) that are U.S. military-issue weapons, the MAK Field
code USA should be used. Common U.S. military-issue weapons include the following:
U.S. Military-Issue Weapons
.45 caliber and/or 9 mm U.S. Submachine Guns: M1, M1A1, M1928, M1928A1
(Thompson), M50, M55 (Reising), M42 (United Defense), M3, M3A1 ("Grease Gun")
.45 caliber U.S. (Colt) Pistols, M1911, and 1911A1
.45 caliber U.S. Revolvers, M1917
.30 caliber U.S. Carbines, M1, M2, M3
7.62 mm U.S. Rifle, M14
5.56 mm U.S. Rifle, M16 and M16A1, etc.
.30 caliber U.S. Rifles: Models 1892, 94, 96, 98 (Krag); Models 1903 and 1903A3,

.30 caliber U.S. Machine Guns (including the BAR, etc.)
.410-gauge and/or .22 U.S. Survival Guns, M4 and M6
1.3 MAK FIELD CODES FOR NONMILITARY U.S. GOVERNMENT WEAPONS
For a nonmilitary weapon bearing a U.S. Government property inscription and the manufacturer's
name on the frame or receiver, the appropriate manufacturer's MAK Field code from Section 1.5
should be used. For example, MAK/SW should be used for Smith & Wesson, and MAK/CLT should
be used for Colt revolvers bearing the inscription U.S. Border patrol, Naval Investigative Service, U.S.
Air Force, Treasury Department, etc.
1.4 MAK FIELD FOR FOREIGN MILITARY WEAPONS
Foreign military firearms should be coded according to the make on the firearm. If the make
is undeterminable, codes should be selected according to the country where the gun was
manufactured. If neither the make nor the country where manufactured is known, additional
information concerning coding can be found in the Gun File chapter in the NCIC 2000
Operating Manual.
