Contact your local police department and give them the serial number. The Police can check on the stolen gun list maintained by the BATFE. If the gun is stolen, the Police will conficate the piece and begin investigation of how it was acquired.

You might not want to remove a serial number from a diamond. It strictly identifies the stone and its ownership can be traced. If the stone is stolen or acquired by other illegal means and want to camouflage it so that it cannot be identified by its serial number, you may be able to find a dodgy jeweler who is willing to recut the stone, which lessens its value, but will remove the serial number.

How can you get the serial number for a JC Higgins bolt action clip feed that was stolen?

You should written it down when you bought it.

If you had your weapon(s) stolen and were able to supply the serial number(s) to law enforcement you don't have to bother following it up yourself. BELIEVE me - if any weapon was recovered, found, or turned in, it WILL be run against the database. YOU don't have to do any checking of any kind yourself - you will be notified when or if it is recovered.
