Can a dealer sell a gun with no serial number?
In the US, firearms weren't required to have serial numbers until 1968. A gun before then is grandfathered in. They may not, however, receive or sell a firearm with the serial number removed (whether it was made before or after 1968).

By US law, firearms must have serial numbers. The part legally considered the firearm is the receiver for a long arm and the frame for a pistol, and that is where the number w…ould be. There are a few special cases, like the FN-FAL and AR-15 designs, which use upper and lower receivers. For the FAL, the firearm is the upper, for the AR, it is the lower. Guns made prior to 1968 may not be numbered at all, particularly if they were made by a small company.
If you mean check for stolen, there is no data base open to the public. Ask you local law enforcement if they will check the serial number agaisnt the NCIC database. They will… want to have the firearm when they check it.
The individula number stamped on each gun at the factory so it can be tracked later on.
Because of California laws.
Possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number in the US (and most other places) is a serious crime, and can be punished by 5 years in prison. BAD idea.
Go to where you registered them.
In most cases, if you give me only a serial number, and no info on make, model, caliber, then no. A serial number is not unque, or it would be 20 numbers long.
The gun and a receipt from the dealer.
In SOME cases, you can tell when made, and in SOME cases, the model of the gun. In others, it tells you nothing but to distinguish between two identical guns.
I think this is illegal and I think you arent allowed to sell to anyone not licences as checks need to be made
No one method, and not always possible. It uses factory production records, or a system that varies from one maker to another.
First, I think you mean register. In MOST of the US, there is no requirement to register ordinary firearms. Now, about the serial number- it is unlawful to REMOVE a serial num…ber, or to possess a gun that has had the SN removed. However, there are guns that do not HAVE a serial number, and they are legal. Rifles and shotguns made prior to 1968 were not required to have serial number. Those guns are listed as NSN- No Serial Number- on paperwork that asks for a serial number.
There are probably several guns with that serial number. Serial numbers are not unique to one single firearm - they often aren't even unique to one firearm from the same m…anufacturer. We'd need a lot more information to determine what type of firearm it is.
In Browning Firearms
Usually on the receiver.
In Smith and Wesson
You will have to call S&W to find out.
There are many sites in the internet where you can legally buy or bid on firearms.
