    IF you want to consider 17,000 piles of 20 year old hand-written records a "registry", you go right ahead. It -is- data, but is far from useful information.

    And here is exactly how that worked:

    Mfg and serial number taken from the gun. Call the MFG and ask what distributor it went to.
    Call to the distributor, what dealer did it go to.
    Call to the dealer, who did you sell it to.

    But note that all the "data" resided with the sellers .. not the FBI/ATF/NICS or any other alphabet soup government agency.

    And, if at any point that rifle had been privately sold, the trail would go stone dead there.
