Its about gun registration, my buddy, just sold me a Remington 512, 22 bolt action, he got it from an old lady whos husband died. I can't find serial number marked on the gun, except for a K and an L or C hard to make out. My question is, is the gun to old to have any serial number markings, and if so do I still have to somehow transfer it to my name. Thanks.

If it is on the long arm C&R list, you can transfer it. If not, no.

But then again, who's gonna know? Long arms aren't registered like handguns are.

Serial numbers were not required in the U.S. prior to the 1968 GCA (diehard historians will argue, correctly, that more than a few production models were produced sans serial numbers since then, but that's a topic for another thread).

The 500 series .22's were introduced between 1937 and 1940. IIRC, the last model out was the 513T, produced for the last time in 1968.

Generally, in CA, if it is a long gun, and it is > 50 years old, then you do not need paperwork to sell.

a gun that old doesnt need to be transferred the more guns you dont have on paper the better.

Wow, didn't think it was that old, if I new that I would have left it original and not refinished the stock, looks nicer though. thanks for all your help.

Also, remington.com, has an 800 number you can call to get a manufacture date for your "serial letters".
