Some web sites are specific makes or models.

Would you provide more info on the firearm you are trying to research?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Well, you may be on that website right now.

First, there is no one website for all firearms. There are some brands that there HAVE no public records. Some, the maker has that info on their own website (Ruger among others) For a LOT, I have a dozen or so different references. SOME makers used letters in the SN. Remington used a 2 or 3 letter code stamped on the barrel. And some guns never HAD a serial number.

Give us the make, model, and ALL markings on the gun, and we will do what we can.

Once more- bigger letters

Can't do anything with a fuzzy pic and no markings, bro.

Take the gun outside in the sun and take a couple pics of the action. It is most likely a converted military model.
