Also, is the forearm wood stamped with the serial number underneath, that would seem hard to fake.

And if Cody has the receiver on file, what is the chance the mismatched barrels match the Cody letter


You can alter the barrel serial number with zero problem. Alter the receiver serial number and the feds will come looking for you. In the case of Fox, Jason Barden still has original factory barrels in the white with no serial number on the barrel flats. Buy the blanks, fit them to the receiver (with a ton of work btw) and bingo, you have a new barrel matched to the receiver.

That is mostly correct, the exception being anyone with a manufactures license can alter the serial # on a receiver legally.

Just anyone who wants to know if a gun is really original or not. Original meaning, as shipped.

How did Crossed Chisel's put it? "It's had 7 handles and 3 head's, but it's still King Alfred's axe."

Or, it's still a Win model 21.

Whomever wants it won't care about the numbers.

This isin't the same thing, but I was looking at a Colt Model M at a gun show that had a very attractive price and I noticed that the serial # had the wrong font. I brought to the dealer's attn. and he was quick to show me it matched the serial # under the slide. When I asked if the appropriate paperwork had been filed with the ATF due to changing the serial #, he became loud and belligerent telling me, " master gunsmith did that, there's nothing wrong with it!"

Needless to say, I walked away...

They can, but not on any given day.

The ATF must approve moving the s/n, changing the s/n or otherwise altering. it. All BEFORE the work is done.

Where do you see that in the guide book? I had to assign a serial # to a couple of guns recently and called to talk with a specialist about it. She told me to pick any number that is not a duplicate in my books and carry on. I see no place in the guide book that states you need prior permission. I could be wrong and have been in the past.

PT Barnum gun. Not his gun, per say, but, a gun custom built for a mark, er, customer, of the type he so well described.


Best,
