Mauser Identification By Serial Number
Mauser Identification By Serial Number ===== https://bltlly.com/2t8feJ
Manufacturing codes are assigned to the various firearms manufacturers. Over the years, when these companies changed ownership or merged to form new companies with new names, they were given different manufacturing codes and used serial numbers that started with different digits. This also helps to identify how old the gun is.
In searching the Davenport apartment, the officers did not find any guns, but they saw a color television set and noted the serial number which, as they later learned, corresponded to the serial number of a television set stolen from the owner of the.22 revolver, one Robert Mitchell. Subsequently the officers legally retrieved the television set.
Davenport moved to suppress the television set as evidence. He argued that: the television set was first observed and its serial number noted during the search incident to the September 22 search warrant; the September 22 search warrant was invalid because it was based on an affidavit containing inaccurate statements of facts or insufficient facts; therefore, the television set should not be admitted into evidence. In denying the motion, the court noted that there were two or three types of inaccurate information in the affidavit, and that one of the statements was taken from an unreliable informant, Harris. Nevertheless, looking at the affidavit as a whole and combining Harris' statement and the officers' finding the .380 Mauser in the storage area, one could reasonably conclude that the remaining stolen guns would be found in the Davenport apartment. Therefore, he ruled, the search warrant was properly issued. 2b1af7f3a8
