Just joined this group as I found it searching Indian Arms. At one time I owned 6 of these and enjoyed having them. A few unfired and one that was a shooter. That one I bought nonfunctional and repaired it after finding parts. Having retired, I've sold all but one. It was the first one i bought and has a custom serial number. I am originally from Michigan and now retired to Central Florida. In unpacking some of my gun part inventory, I've come across a complete slide for an Indian Arms, also a set of wood grips. Asking $100.00 for the slide and $35.00 for the grips.

I would be interested in that.
 
Hello,

SSLfirearms.com in Byron Center, MI has a Indian Arms, 380 up for auction which closes 10-15-19. One problem. The pistol does not have a serial number. see photos. I have warned SSLFirearms about selling a firearm manufactured after 1968 without a serial number 4 days ago but the pistol is still up for auction. There are plenty of nice photos of the pistol but the receiver does not have a serial number in the usual location. The auction item number: Lot 41-30246 states "Police seized firearm"
in the description under Serial Number it states: NSN. Perhaps this pistol found its way out of the factory before the serial number was stamped.

I could buy that slide and they could keep the frame. They'll probably have to piece it out eventually since I don't think that it will sell.

They could apply to the BATF for an "official" serial number that could then be stamped on it.

Like you said, not having a serial number or any other number any where else to use as a serial number is problematic at best.

I have a pistol that doesn't have a "serial number" but it does have an assembly number which was used as the serial number for the transfer.

I'm surprised that the police let it go after they had it.
