Police seized a stun gun in Chatteris on Friday night after a tip-off from a member of the public.
The gun - designed to temporarily incapacitate a person but usually without causing long term harm - was disguised as a torch.
The weapon is prohibited under Section 5 of the Firearms Act; police confirmed their investigation was ongoing.
Police said the Fenland neighbouring policing team were involved and the seizure was part of their Operation Raptor campaign to tackle crime.
A police spokesman said: "Operation Raptor is about working together across units as one team to make the most efficient use of resources and be as effective as we can.
