NSW Police also said they found close to 80 knives on the Kurrajong property, which was raided Wednesday as part of an investigation into the manufacture and import of illegal weapons.

They allegedly found a “significant amount of banned weapons”, including about 40 firearms, six silencers, seven improvised explosives and pipe bombs, as well as chemicals to make more.

Police also said they seized ammunition, bulletproof vests, stun guns, batons and numerous knives.

They say they found 77 knives on the property and another in the 42-year-old man they arrested during a traffic stop in nearby Grose Vale.

He is charged with six crimes, including possession of unlicensed firearms and prohibited weapons, as well as making unlicensed firearms and publicly possessing knives.

He will appear in Penrith County Court on Thursday.
