I've been active on gun forums for close to 20 years, and not once have I ever heard of anyone having any problems whatsoever with showing the serial number in an online photograph. Has anyone ever heard of a problem with this that can be confirmed? I'm sure there are plenty of rumors......but, there are rumors, and then there is fact! As far as I'm concerned, this is nothing but false hype, with no basis in reality. I just don't pay any attention to serial numbers anymore....... ooc Here is a photo I took sometime in the 1990's: These are more recent......steal one of these: (Even if you can't read the numbers here, if you're good with photo enhancements, you can get the numbers.) ooc Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
