An old 870, even if you could restore the serial number, is worth perhaps a couple hundred dollars at most. OTOH, possession of a gun with a serial number that has been filed off is worth perhaps a FELONY conviction. :shock: This would mean never being able to own another firearm of any kind for the rest of your life. It might also mean some time behind bars.Zimo said:Thanks for the info. I read somewhere acid can bring back the s/n. I just wanted to see if any experts knew anything more about this method.
No need to THINK anymore. its VERY ILLEGAL to own a gun with the serial #s filed off. There are some over the counter chemicals that can bring up the #s but If I were you I would take the gun apart and use them for spare parts. The gun cant be worth a ton of $$. But there were guns once upon a time that had no serial #sUlysses said:Although I'm not 100% certain of this, I THINK it is highly illegal to own or possess a gun whose serial number has been removed. .
