According to the indictment, Webber had reached a settlement in 2007 with federal authorities in which he agreed never to deal in firearms.

Instead, Webber allegedly started a business called HK Parts through which he sold firearms and parts without a federal license. Some of those were shipped outside the country even though Webber allegedly did not have an export license.

From 2007 to 2010 he also is charged with filing tax forms that under reported revenues from his business.

The government also is seeking forfeiture of dozens of weapons.

The case was investigated by IRS-Criminal Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a news release said.
