The whole thing sounded odd to me. They stated that they don't have it on file, and I should re-submit it as originally, but how can they prove someone won't add 'extras' to the list or by accident put a wrong date? What about registered AW's that were sold since? If you don't put it on the list, then they compare to the original paperwork they could claim that you are omitting stuff and more headaches start.

I ended up finding my paperwork a week later, but wasn't sure what I should have done if I had not.

I bet that HAVE all the mag registration forms - they have them stuffed into a bunch of banker boxes in a corner somewhere, totally unindexed and unsearchable.

I have heard that this is indeed the case.  Specific mags were not recorded.  Just checked a box next to your name that says high capacity magazines registered.

One thing the government (at all levels) is good at is keeping records. How ever inaccurate those records may be.  ;D

I would suspect that those paper records on the magazines are somewhere in a box/filing cabinet up in Hartford if they haven't already been scanned in to a database. They'd have to be. Otherwise it would be impossible to charge someone who has submitted a magazine declaration form who purchases standard capacity magazines post 4/4/13. Just don't see the gun grabbers letting that kind of hole exist.

But who knows. Stranger things have happened.

I would be willing to bet that the prosecutions for possession of "high-capacity" magazines so far have been based on the initial interviews of the arrestee.  It probably went something like:

Cop-  "Did you register this magazine back in 2013?"

Suspect-  "Huh?  What registration?"

Case closed.

If someone were to answer "Yes, I did!"  then the state would have to dig through the pile of forms and prove they didn't.  Since the information on the forms is pretty minimal that might be tough.

That's what I'm thinking too.

"of course" would be my answer.

Found one of my AW cert.  The others are somewhere in the house.  I registered my mags, but didn't get a response from DPS.

DSP sent letters like the following to those who declared their standard capacity magazines.
