== == If you are trying to find the number for a gun you no longer have you will have to go back to the dealer who sold it to you, if the dealer is still in business. Dealer records are the only place serial numbers are recorded.

If the dealer is out of business, his records may have been sent to the BATF. Theoretically they store them, but I have never heard of anyone having much luck getting any information out of there. If you got it from a private individual, you could hope he recorded the number and you can locate him.

Absent these sources you are out of luck.

It is located on a sticker on the back or bottom of the projector that has the voltage rating and the serial number. If yours does not have a sticker, and you have purchased the projector used, it may have been removed to disguise a stolen item since the serial number would have been removed too.

How do you find out if bike is stolen?

That can be a bit difficult. The easiest way is to ask the seller to show you an original receipt from the store. If that doesn't work you can take the serial number of the bike, contact the police(not on the emergency number!) and ask if it's been reported stolen. Don't expect too much from that though, not many people note the serial number of their bikes.
