Default Serial Numbers?

I am lookin at buying a TC Firehawk. My question is about registration. This gun has a seriel # on it. I thought black powder guns were not numbered, thus allowing you to buy thru the mail from stores like Cabalea's. Am I missing a change in the law? I don't want to break any laws here. What do I have to do?

Default Serial Numbers

Just having a serial number does not make it a "firearm". You can still mail order a black powder muzzle loader. Registration? Not under federal law.
