That is correct, Jim, and kind of interesting. No one much cared about a "liberated" .45 automatic, and after tens of thousands were sold surplus prosecution for theft would have been nigh unto impossible. But by removing the serial number, the "owner" violated a law with no statute of limitations ("possession" is the violation, not the serial number removal) and greater penalties.
