We never had a serial number search on our website.

Armalite/Eagle
(800) 336-0184
Armalite advised me of a new "Serial Number Lookup" function available on their website. I tried it and it's great! It would be great if more manufacturers did the same. Thanks Armalite!
Since this is such a useful service (and saves the manufacturer countless hours spent answering serial number related phone calls) I volunteer to host a serial number lookup program (which I'll write) and the serial number database for any manufacturer who wants to provide it. Interested manufacturers should e-mail me.

To use Armalite's online lookup service for Armalite / Eagle Arms, go here: http://www.armalite.com/ASPs/serialNumberSearch/submitSerialNumber.htm

So you have something to print to take to a gun show, ArmaLite's official "generic" position on pre/post status of receivers they've made is:


Almost all Eagle Arms rifles bearing the notation "Eagle Arms Div ArmaLite" are post-ban rifles. The only exception will be on serial numbers under 30,000. Receivers with pre-ban serial numbers marked with the ArmaLite name are new receivers produced to repair legitimate pre-ban rifles.
Many Eagle Arms lower receivers were sold to customers and assembled outside the factory. ArmaLite has no way of knowing which of these arms were legitimately assembled into "pre-ban" rifles before the Crime Bill went into effect.
ArmaLite's history specialist will conduct research into the production history of a given serial number and provide a letter attesting to its factory designation and shipping date. The research will be conducted at a cost of $25.00 per firearm. The customer name CANNOT be provided due to privacy constraints.



granted this is from 5 years ago, on mp5.net, but I thought I remembered trying it out at some point.

It looks like ArmaLite got rid of the serial number search feature on their web site at the end of 2006.

Well, good to know I am not entirely crazy.

Too bad the archived page isn't taking submissions.

Thanks for finding that for me.
