NEWARK, NEW JERSEY- A man admitted he tried to sell some guns believed to have been owned by Saddam Hussein's family and he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to transport stolen firearms in federal court.

David Philip Ryan of Miami faces up to five years in prison and will be sentenced in June.

There were seven guns worth an estimated $250,000 to $350,000 and were seized by federal agents three-years ago. Among the guns, a .357 semi-automatic pistol with a medallion in gold with the letters "QS."

It's presumed the letters stood for the Iraqi President's son, Qusay. Another .45 pistol also had gold leaf and gold inlays and had the initials "QS" as well.
