A replica pistol and drugs have been seized and about 150 people and 80 vehicles searched during the latest anti-bikie police blitz in Sydney.

Officers from across Sydney together with the dog squad and the police airwing were involved in the two day "proactive operation aimed at combating gun-related crime and public place shootings," police said.

A 22-year-old man was allegedly caught with 30 ecstasy tablets and cannabis during the raids over Friday and Saturday.

Another man, 19, will front Fairfield Local Court later in August after he was allegedly busted with a replica pistol and a 28-year-old man who was armed with a knife was given a criminal infringement notice.

Ten others were hit with a raft of charges including possessing a prohibited drug, possessing steroids, malicious damage and traffic offences.

Police also searched 23 licensed venues and 46 "targeted premises" during the blitz.

More than 200 drivers were breath tested but only one was charged with drink driving.

Over several similar operations, police have laid more than 600 charges against 320 people and seized 80 firearms.

Also caught during the raids was a senior member of the Comancheros bikie gang, named as Mark Buddle in media reports.

Buddle was arrested at Maroubra on Friday night and sent back to jail for breaching parole.
