I updated my Newport, NH thread above because the Serbus have both been recovered and an arrest made. It probably should be moved to this forum because it topped in the Non-Firearms forums.

Have you guys had any success with posting all of this info? No offense but I think that its a waste of time because I think the chances of you finding stolen firearms from a website are going to be very rare.

I should have posted this a long time ago but....

West Virginia and surrounding areas be on the lookout for a Springfield Armory M1A with a USGI Sako normal contour NM barrel, rest of the parts are TRW and NM parts in a light blonde M14 stock with DAS cartouche. I can provide the SN in subsequent posts, I have to look for it.

It was previously sent to Mike Kelly Specialties in Feb 2000 and was probably seized by BATF(E) around January of 2002 when their rewelded receivers were judged as still MG's. I'm curious to see if it might be floating around out there in or in a pawn shop or private owners home.

Ok, mine was stolen in late 1997 from my parents house in Trenton, NJ. I believe it is still listen in NCIC so contact with a local PD should confirm its status if located. The firearm was a S&W 625 with a 3" barrel. The serial number was BEN8830. I'm sure that it will never turn up at this point, but the PD keeps sending letters that it is still in NCIC. Email me at should you have any information.

Sportsman's Den- CA [theft; murder of owner Gary Flynn]

I'm adding the following list of those taken in the armed robbery and murder of an Oakhurst, California gunshop in which gunshop owner Gary Flynn, one of the BCRs from the Subguns board, was killed.

But it strikes me that it'd be helpful that when a list of stolen guns is added to to this thread, it'll be helpful if the two-letter state abbreviation is included in the subject line. That'd be particularly useful for those vacationing or catching gun shows or shoots in other states, as well as for a reference check when shopping nearer to home.


************************************************** *******

Oakhurst, California -

Madera County Sheriff's Detectives and deputies are still looking for any witnesses who were near the Sportsman's Den gun shop in Oakhurst, California on April 25, 2001 between 2:30 and 3:15 Pacific Standard time.

It was during this window of time that an unknown assailant entered the store and murdered owner Gary Albert Flynn, 61, of Oakhurst with a single execution-style shot to the back of the head.

Sheriff's Detectives feel that robbery was the motive.

Gun collectors, gun shop owners, and firearms affectionados are asked to be on the lookout for the following firearms:

************************************************** ************

Oakhurst, California 4/25/01 -

California Gun Store owner Gary Flynn was brutally murdered in his store, The Sportman's Den between 2pm and 3pm Pacific Daylight time by a single armed gunman. The store was then robbed.

The 61 year old Flynn was taken into the back of his store and executed with a shot to the back of the head after opening his safe for his killer.

The murderer then made off with approximately twenty to thirty pistols.

The firearms had been stored in the safe due to their being placed on the State of California list of those firearms that are deemed, "Not safe for sale" in the state as of January first of this year.

Flynn was very well liked in the community for his kindness and great sense of humor.

"He was a big man with a big heart," shared his good friend, J. R. Froelich.

Madera County Sheriff's spokesperson Rita Valdavia says that they need public help in coming forward with any information regarding the murder and robbery. Witnesses or those with any helpful information may call Madera County Sheriff's Department at (559) 675-7769 and ask for Homicide.

The MOST important thing is for the Police to get the serial number and all pertinent information so that the stolen firearms can be listed in the NCIC files as stolen. This allows officers to check the serial numbers on weapons confiscated or on weapons that are questionable. I have personally recovered a small collection while investigating a Family Violence Assault. I can not stress enough how important that it is to have that information available and provide it. My firearms serial numbers/info (credit cards also) are listed on a floppy disk and stored at a friends residence in his gun safe and I did the same for him.

Make it difficult for the SOBs

Hi guys, I think I can add something to this post. Way back a few years, I had a co-worker that got broken into while he was at work, and they ripped him off for his entire collection EXCEPT for his high-end Weatherby. Can you guess why they left it... (ponder for a second) Okay, times up. It was completely field-stripped and left out in the open on the coffee table. These clowns probably didn't know how to put it back together! If one were to make it difficult by stripping down the key components, and making these more of a 'hard target' as it were, I think that there would be less likely a chance of being ripped-off. I hate to say it, but the more people that know about your 'cool collection', the greater the likelihood that a 'friend of a friends friend' will want to relieve you of it, sad to say. Anyhow, don't make it too easy. The last thing we need is to help arm the criminal element. Take care, and watch your six. [TK]

This issue has been resolved a long time ago about ThatFALGuy not paying me for products sent. He squelched on the deal but eventually with enough pressure he returned most of the items.

thread here

While on consignment with Lloyd's Gunsmithing my Springfield Armory M1911A1(SN# N376128) was stolen from the Kenny Woods Gun Show in Lexington, KY on 6 January 2007. It is a 5" gun that is set up similar to the current "Loaded" models(speed bump beavertail grip safety, extended thumb safety, ejection port lower/flare) and the following unique features:

- Novak bar dot night sights, but the Novak rear has been cut so it has a flat for one hand slide racking resulting in a profile similar to a Heinie rear after the mod and a fair amount of finish wear on these

- Entire pistol(other than front sight edges) had all the edges severely "melted" so if a 1911 has an appearance like a used bar of soap take a closer look

- front strap and arched mainspring housing are stippled

- Frame, slide, and most external small parts were finished with park grey Duracoat(carried little since this was applied so there will be an odd look between this near new finish and the night sights,) hammer was left in the white, and the barrel was finished in Metalife so it has almost a Beretta stainless look to it. *Entire pistol was finished in Metalife before the Duracoat overcoat so if the POS read the details sign during the theft this may come up*

- Grip panels are the old USGI brown plastic with straight head screws

- short, black plastic trigger with the overtravel stop screw removed

If anyone sees this pop up please shoot me a message and/or contact Detective Todd McClure of the Lexington PD @ 859-258-3713

RE: Stolen Colt .45 Automatic-Charlotte, NC

Colt Gunsite .45 ACP stolen from my truck on Saturday 16 February 07 between 9:00pm - 12:00 midnight while parked at the Doubletree Hotel Charlotte, NC airport. Description of pistol as follows:

Firearm Manufacturer: Colt
Type: 1911 Government Automatic
Model: Colt Gunsite Pistol
Finish: Matte Stainless Steel Frame & Side
Caliber: .45 ACP
Serial Number: CGP0447

Right-Hand Side Marking Detail
Slide: "Colt Government Model" w/ Gunsite 'Eagle' logo
Frame: "Colts PT.FA. MFG. CO. Hartford, Conn. U.S.A."

Left-Hand Side Marking Detail
Slide: "Colt Gunsite Pistol"
Frame: (no other markings on frame)

Notable Custom Features
Ambidextrous Safety
Extended Slide Stop
Arched Mainspring Housing
Full Length Recoli Guide Rod
Black Hard Rubber Checkered Grip Panels

Given the items stolen from 5 vehicles that were in the same in the parking lot I would speculate that this pistol may show up in a local pawn shop. Anyone with information relative to this stolen handgun should contact either myself via e-mail/PM or officer J.D. Walker (badge # 3675) at the Charlotte Metropolitan Police Department @ (704) 432-2442.

Thank you

t332- I'm up the road in Coolidge. I assume Thomas S.O or the PD made a report (I didn't see anything in the paper about it). Things seem to migrate between Thomas and Colquitt counties, so check the pawn shops in Moultrie (there are 3). Don't expect help from the locals in Moultrie. I've heard them say that since it isn't their stuff, they don't care if yoou get it back. Good luck.

So the dude calls me the other day and tells me the sheriff called him and told him to come and pick up his gun, they busted up a small gang of punks that had been hitting these vacation homes around the area. Couldn't believe it.
Soooooo, disregard my last post.

Stolen pre-ban Argentine FAL

My pre-ban Argentine FAL was stolen in Arizona. The serial number on the upper was 02953. I didn't record the serial number of the lower. It was in excellent condition. PM much appreciated if you see it.

There was a sealed case of 7.62 Argentine (matching ammo!) along with lots of other guns and ammo taken at the same time. Other 7.62 ammo includes Radway Green, Portuguese, South African, and several original M-60 belts (Lake City) in canvas assault packs.

Question 9mm High-Power missing

Argentinian 9mm high-power. Stolen from Hopewell twp. Beaver County, PA-
FM Rosario stamped and has Pachmayr right hand grips. Pistol is a bastard assembly and faults and tight parts makes it freakishly accurate. All flat black- finish- Serial number = 330313 + three mags. Most of you know the value of this pistol so the One and only Reason is to make sure it is not on the streets. The police were notified.
