The police department will run the gun's serial number through the FBI's NCIC database which records all stolen guns that have been reported in every state.
Enter the serial number into a third-party website like Hot Gunz or Stolen Weapon.
This information is no substitute for obtaining a Winchester Factory Letter from the Cody Firearms Museum (available for certain models and serial ranges) which in addition to the Serial Number Application Date, normally provide the original Received In Warehouse Date and Date Shipped from Winchester factory.
Submit the gun serial number to the representative over the phone or enter it into the search field online.
