In this paper, diagnosing the technology transfer contract of a hunting weapon is studied. To the belief of the experts, the complete process of technology transfer consists of three steps; (1) selection and acquisition, (2) adaption, absorption, and application, (3) development and dissemination. Therefore, the questions related to each area extracted, and they are studied through the interviews with eight experts and former managers in the field of hunting weapon production; and finally, by distributing the questionnaires among 100 technology transfer experts the compilation of the main components and project model was done. The studies show that the most challenges happen in the first instance in technology selection and acquisition, and then in development and dissemination. Also, the findings indicate that many managerial changes in implementing the contract have caused the senior managers of all the factories producing this weapon to pay attention to short term economic results, and to neglect the long term goals in mind from signing the contract. Furthermore, by holding the predicted training courses incompletely, the company has not succeeded in achieving the design knowledge of similar hunting weapons.
