    In a recent trader post the seller made a point to say “not a trade”, “original owner”, “bought new”, etc.

    How relevant is this?

    Would your firearm serial number even be checked against a crime database say in the event of a routine traffic stop?

    Is this even possible?

    If so, is there any way to check your collection and verify they are all clean?

    This is a voluntary database based on public supplied information. Not populated from any 'official' or 'government' data.

    Very useful, but irrelevant with regard to police or government agency records.

    You can take it to police dept. They will run the numbers. Only thing if it comes back stolen they will keep it. I think you would have a lot less chance of being charged with receiving stolen property if you took it to them.
