Ragozins was arrested by officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) in Lynn in April.

Subsequent searches recovered a total of 14 handguns, plus ammunition, and 29 stun guns.

Officers say the handguns originally fired only blanks, but had been converted to take conventional ammunition.

Ragozins was remanded in custody to re-appear in court on July 26 for sentencing.

NCA branch commander Martin Huxley said after the hearing: "Preventing firearms from reaching the hands of criminals is a key priority for the NCA.

"This was a significant seizure of weapons, and I've no doubt that had we not stepped in they would have been used to commit violent acts on our streets.”
