Just buy them. Is she going to tell the authorities or something? I'm sure they are all "relics" anyway. Right?

I traded in a gun just this week on a new gun at the gun shop. Took them like 2 seconds to jot down the serial number on a form and then apply the money towards the new gun. They didn't run a check on it, or anything. Not really sure that they can? I know we'd all like to think the police and the powers that be are on top of this stuff and tracking it, but I really wonder.

Seems unlikely that a widow would be in posession of stolen guns, and seems even less likely that anybody would know or even care if they were, but I suppose I could be wrong...

The police can tell you in about 10 seconds if a gun has been reported stolen or not. I've called them before buying a couple of times. All you need is the serial number and the caliber. If you're going to call them though, make sure you call before you buy. If it turns out hot, they will be asking questions.

vindex1963 is reading this now saying WTF is this?
How many people even know the serial# of their guns to tell the police if they get stolen. The chances of them being stolen in an estate sale are slim.

Internet

If I was calling to check a serial number I'd be saying you found the listing on the net some place. While EBAY does not allow firearms there are a few place that conduct online auctions for municipal sales of lost or confiscated fire arms. They take the bid and then you have to deal with a bunch of paperwork when you actually win and go to get them.

I bought a slightly used gun at a gun show once. But before I bought it I jotted down the S/N, stepped over to the Sheriff at the door that was checking for unloaded weapons upon entry and kindly asked if he would run the number for me. He ran the numbers within a minute or less it came back not reported stolen. He told me I can't tell you if its stolen or not, but I can tell that its not been reported stolen.

I'd but them in a heartbeat if the price was right. As long as I had a receipt with all of the S/N's listed and signed by the seller I'd be satisfied.

I had a friend that told me about the super cheap price he paid to buy a revolver. I told him that it may have been stolen, I could have a friend of mine run it through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) if he wanted. He did, I did, and it came back stolen. He turned it over to the police so the original owner could get his gun back and it could be taken out of the NCIC computer. He was out the money, but he learned a lesson..... a really good deal from someone may not be such a deal after all.
