BrittB Is there a way to check serial numbers on firearms before you buy them from private parties? I would hate to spend a lot of money to find out later that I purchased a stolen weapon. By the way, I live in Oregon.
No. Access to the Federal NCIC database is limited to law enforcement officers on official business only. Any unauthorized use (ie your cop friend doing you a favor0 will cause the officer to lose his NCIC access.
barstoolguru you can take the number to a gun shop and they can do it
Nonsense. Gun dealers do not have access to the NCIC.....only LEO.
