A Sydney man has been committed to stand trial in Launceston's Supreme Court on gun running and drug trafficking charges.
Shadi Farhat, 36, of Earlwood, was arrested as part of Tasmania Police's Operation Webb last month.
On Monday Mr Farhat pleaded not guilty to taking four handguns on board an aircraft at Launceston Airport and trafficking methylamphetamine and firearms.
The former panel beater also pleaded not guilty to dealing in the proceeds of crime, namely $152,250 in cash. His co-accused Mickeal Bechara, 35, of Punchbowl, pleaded not guilty to all charges in September and has also been committed to stand trial.
Today in the Launceston Magistrates Court Mr Farhat pleaded guilty to possessing an unregistered firearm and being unlicensed.
He then pleaded not guilty to other firearm offences.
Both matters were adjourned until the Supreme Court matters are resolved.
His lawyer James Kitto made an application for bail which was refused by Magistrate Simon Brown.
Mr Farhat was remanded in custody to appear in the Supreme Court on November 18.
