An add many "part guns" brought back by GI's didn't have serial numbers. As they weren't finished at the factor the GI's raided. An a FFL can add a serial number per the ATF.

I have a 1960s vintage Mossberg (yes Mossberg) lever action 22LR that was made with no s/n. Totally legal since its pre-1968 mfr.

This is a good reason to get a C&R FFL. You could have it shipped direct to you and not have to try to find a cooperative 01FFL to transfer it. Then you could inspect it directly to see if it has a s/n elsewhere or if it was removed. If its not removed and not present, you simply enter "none" in the s/n box of your bound book for the rifle.

DOT 44 K98k rifles were not serialized on the receiver, just the barrel. It is normal for these.

We would enter "NSN" for firearms originally manufactured without a serial number. My guess is, the OPs military K98 is not such a firearm. It was probably parted out for just this reason.

Edit: Hal is correct. Ive just had a look on gunboards.com's k98 serial number thread on Dot 44s, and there are several listed with the serial number only on the barrel.

Marked where serial number goes on the form - NSN (no serial number) - states so right on the BATF website


Section D of the form states it right there....
