From what I was told, ATF caught the accused in a sting operation. The county sheriff's department is prosecuting them, but the victim advocate for the county solicitor's office said that there may be a federal case following the local law enforcement case. ATF has failed to return my calls for further details. After reading about all the guns they lose, I'm afraid it will just get lost in the system or stolen from them. I have proof that I paid the gunsmith for the rifle work. I'm going to get the serial number from the store that I purchased it from. JimDandy, thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for. With regard to getting a lawyer, I'm afraid that if I get one involved I will end up spending more money than the rifle is worth. Right now, I'm just going with the magistrate b/c the summons fee was only $80 which the gunsmith will have to pay if the judge finds in my favor.
