Howdy folks. I figured I would run this thru you guys since you seem to dance on the razors edge!. When the first ban hit in the early 90's, I registered my Norinco .223 ak semi, the fee was taken, but they asked me to re-fill out their form again and re-submit. When I got the 2nd form, there was a number on the form in green ink that said "AR59XXX", my number. I sent this in again and waited .....and waited.....and then forgot about the whole thing and started playing with race cars instead of guns!.Now, almost 14 years later I have the gun bug again. I just bought an SU16, an SKS and some other goodies. Now I dug out my almost virgin AK and want to shoot it.I have copies of my reciept from 1988 when purchased, copies of my first submitted registration form and the back of the second submittal showing my paid stamp. Should I contact the cal DOJ or just write it off??.

You can get, for a fee, a listing of all weapons registered to you from DOJ. If the Norinco is not listed, then you should write to them and ask why it isn't.

You need to contact the DOJ. Most likely there was a question about the Make, Model or Serial number that couldn't be figured out. Which would mean your AW registration application is sitting in a box and has never been completely entered into the computer.

I don't have the number here, but PM me and I'll send it to you when I get to work. It's usually not a big deal and once they figure out what happened, they'll issue you the AW Registration confirmation paperwork.

It's no big deal, this has happened to a LOT of people, and they have no problem with helping you out.

Yes, contact them and make sure it is registered. If it is not and they won't help you. DO not give the rifle up. Just leave it at home. NEVER give anything like that up!

Absolutely. I'll PM the number to the AW Reg office before the weekend is over.

This is why it is good to keep records on ANY dealings with the government.

Similar situation in registering Palmetto AR. Filled out paperwork and sent it in 1989 before the Roberti-Roos law took effect. But Palmetto wasn't listed, but it was an AR-15. No paperwork ever came from DOJ. Got distracted with other toys. The urge returned.
Somewhere around 2003 I called DOJ to check on the reg. They found it and sent me a copy. Oh, happpy days!! Now I have multiple copies.

I don't believe that is entirely true, if what you are referring to is WWII and the Nationalist Socialist party in Germany at the time...
