The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) found 1,000 units of speed loaders at Pasir Panjang Scanning Station on Feb 5.
A speed loader is a device used to quickly reload a firearm.
The ICA said in a statement on Facebook that officers noticed anomalies in the scanned images of a container with a consignment declared as "assorted cargoes".
"Sensing something amiss, the officers conducted unstuffing operations at the importer's premise and uncovered 1,000 units of speed loaders, which were not declared in the import permit," ICA said.

The case was referred to Singapore Customs for investigations.
ICA said it will continue to conduct security checks at the checkpoints to prevent attempts to smuggle in desirable persons, drugs, weapons, explosives and other contrabands.
"The same method of concealment may be used by terrorists to smuggle arms and explosives to carry out attacks in Singapore," it said.
