So is there a requirement that you keep records of all serial numbers of all firearms? What if you did not record the serial number and lost it? And if the gun turns up will it be returned to you if you did report it lost with the SN?

Just out of curiosity, the original start of the thread mentioned a machine shop turning out conversions to avoid legality problems.... However, no mention was made on if the owner of the machine shop had the "proper" credentials to convert a firearm? Generally anyone can work on their own firearm, however I thought one had to have an FFL to work on or convert someone else's weapon.

He is in compliance with the laws for doing the type of gunsmithing he does.

I'm not sure. He is only modifying the barrel or upper receiver. If he does not accept possession of the lower receiver, he has not handled a firearm. It would be the consumer marrying the lower to a short barreled upper who is "making" the SBR.

that's how alot of folks got AR-15's from 94' to 04' NFA item's don't fall under the same rules, I bought two suppressors, an SBR and micro uzi(full auto) during the last ban... but I could'nt buy an AR-15 with a 20" barrel... Our Government... go figure like the 14.5" benelli M4 semi auto.. you can't buy one from the store. but I can buy it from my class 3 dealer, pay for it + $35 FFL transfer fee and let him keep it till my tax stamp arrives (about 6 months right now)
