Serial Numbers Recorded on 4473?
I've done business with an FFL for the past year and a half, and every time they called the FBI for the background check they always did it from the backroom and out of my sight. This is important to note, because last week I went to a different FFL and bought a gun on spur of the moment. This time I watch the dealer call in my BG check, and when it clears the clerk marks the 4473 form with the serial # of my purchase on a line below my signature and date. I politely ask when the ATF mandated that be accomplished, and he said that's how its always been done since he worked there.

Is that fact, or is it an FFL-dependent policy? For all I know my "main" dealer could have done so the entire time and I never knew the wiser, so hence I ask.

I only put the serial number over in box 28 on page 3. No idea what that dude is doing.

On page 3, you enter the make, model, caliber, and serial number of the firearm.

Line 16 is your first signature on top of page 2. Under that should be your drivers license info. Under that, there should be an approved or denial box.

Are you talking about a CA transaction or from another state?

Ar you talking about the serial number of the firearm or something else?

It sounds like you are talking about the NCIS and under your signature on the second page it is required to put down the number, for CA is it the DROS number, for other states it is the NCIS or the state number.
