I am not sure if the DOJ ever does a check of the firearm since it would require that they ask the manufacturer whether the firearm with a specific serial number was actually a specific model or not. I have to wonder if a manufacturer would actually provide the information as well.
It is very easy to make a mistake and select the wrong firearm or think that it actually was on the list.
