HARTFORD, Conn. – A New Britain gun manufacturer pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to charges that he failed to register 62 machine guns, though court records suggest that there were other violations to which he did not plead.

Mark Malkowski, 37, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of failing to register machine guns to his company, Stag Arms LLC. As part of the plea agreement Malkowski will pay a $500,000 fine and faces up to five years probation. He also will have to sell the company he founded as part of the plea deal.

Additionally, Malkowski is expected to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges Wednesday in New Haven for failing to maintain proper firearm records, an offense that carries a maximum term of one year in prison and a $100,000 fine.
