Default Handgun Roster Issue?

How does the DOJ check on roster pistols? I have a FN Hi-Power in the waiting period now. My FFL didn't know what what the model was, (FN HP-SA / Steel I believe) and just listed as HP35 on the DROS.

He said that the DOJ checks based off serial number and if it's an on roster pistol I should be good. Just wanted to see if you guys have ever encountered this, or if it may bring up any issues.

I know the gun is good, i'm just wondering if the DOJ will know that since the model that was put on the DROS is different.

The below "FN HP" is on roster, so I don't know why he listed "HP35", because that's not on the roster. However, I did have an FFL tell me that the engraving of the model on the slide must match what's on the roster. I think "HP35" would raise a flag with DOJ.

DOJ checks by SKU, not serial.

He put HP35 because it was on the box it arrived in, the gun didn't appear to have any model on it, only the Fabrique National made in Belgium stuff. He assured me that it should pass off the serial number alone, but of course i'd like to confirm.

No one here can give you confirmation you won't have an issue. The DOJ will tell you though.......

Hmm. Sounds like my FFL may have been wrong. I think corrections can be made to the DROS, I'll give him a call and see if he's willing change the model.

Guess not, just spoke with him, dead set that it's serial number specific. Just keep my fingers crossed.

I'm sure it will all work out.

Serial number has nothing to do with it. Is this a ppt or new purchase. If a new purchase the system wouldn't allow entry of an off roster pistol. If ppt it doesn't matter, so either way stop worrying.

Some are listed by name, some by SKU. On of the reasons the system is so confusing

Serial number's often are not unique to a type of gun. So there is really no way to tell if a number in a serial number range is good to go for the roster or not. They aren't like VIN number's that can tell you damn near everything about a particular car. Not to mention if CADOJ checked roster compliance by serial number it would probably take them months to check against any type of data base, if one exists.

I reiterate, the DROS could not be submitted without a gun on the list having been chosen. The system won't allow you to enter an off roster gun unless it's a PPT. If the DROS has been entered and you are not prohibited in some way, you will be fine.
