Not sure what your question is?

Hand gun?

Long gun?

What State are you in?

More data please?

If I am reading your post right, your gun was stolen and you do not have the serial number on record and you want to find it out. Correct?

How did you buy the gun (face to face or shipped to an FFL)?
Where did you buy the gun (individual or store)?

Are you the owner? Go to the shop where the gun was purchased and ask if the BATF Form 4473 is available. I believe FFLs are required to keep a log of transfers. The serial number may also be on the box or case the gun came in or on the receipt.

FFLs are required to keep a log of transfers as well as inventory.
They are logged in and out of the A&D books just like regular inventory.

The 4473 form will have the serial number.
Their acquisition and disposition logs should have the number as well.

If the gun was bought new, the serial number should be on the case/box that the gun came in.. if you still have the box, it might save you a trip to the FFL.

That sure would have been helpful to know in the initial post. :) Any chance your Dad kept the bill of sale? The serial number may be on there. Short of that I believe you are out of luck, sol as you said, unless the gun has been insured or the serial number has been written down or photographed at some point.

I am an FFL, and while I am responsible for keeping records for a minimum of 20 years, my records are kept in chronological order. Makes it tough if you don't know when the gun was purchased... Plus, I do not have a duty to look up anything for anyone but the jackbooted thugs, just sayin...
