So my friend had a bad pistol only about 2 years old, so he ships it to the company a few weeks later he receives a rebuilt pistol with a new serial number.

I thought it was interesting that he received a new serial number without any paper trail.

Gun still could be traced but it is not registered.

Wow. He should return the gun and ask for a serial # reissue from his old #.

That's ILLEGAL. The gun dealer sent a "whole new gun" to him without any CA FFL, DROS, waiting period, etc. involved.

If they refuse, he should tell them he is worried about his legal situation and must inform DOJ to protect himself. That should get some action.

Normally I am not in favor of letting agencies know of stupid/questionable legalities by mfgrs and letting things slide, but when a mfgr or dealer tries to make a customer a possible criminal, that's a different thing.

During the P-22 debacle, I sent mine in and found out the serial number didn't match the one listed at the DOJ. S/W sumitted a change of SN to the DOJ, which I suspect is what happened with your friend's pistol.

Same thing happened to a friend of mine here in Californistan.

I do not believe there is a "proper" procedure for notifying the DoJ.

ETA in my friend's case it was a Smith & Wesson Airlite revolver.
