Firearms Registry

Does the FBI or any agency keep a registry of stolen firearms? These, of course, would be stolen firearms reported by victims of theft.

My understanding is NCIC is not reliable, many local agencies don't report stolen guns, if a gun is returned to the legal owner the entry is often not updated, etc. I don't really know or care much about it, but that is what I was told in the past.

I've used this site before to check on questionable guns I've worked on. Most recent was a SCCY that had a broken receiver and came in jammed. It was clear, and the manufacturer replaced the gun with a brand new one.

Its not a bad idea if you are going to work on a public gun to just check to make sure it isn't on a list. Never know if you are working on a "smoking gun" if its not yours.
