I (transferor/sender FFL) already recorded the disposition of the firearm to the transferee/receiver FFL or nonlicensee in my acquisition and disposition record. How would I reflect the theft/loss of the firearm in my acquisition and disposition record?

The transferor/sender FFL should draw a single line through the incorrect disposition information.  If there is room in the disposition block, the FFL should record the date of the theft or loss, the ATF incident number, and the local authority incident number.  The licensee should then initial and date the changes.  Alternatively, if there is no room in the disposition block to legibly record the required information, the FFL should line-out the disposition information and initial and date the change.  The FFL should then make a new entry in the next available line in the current A&D Record.  In that case, the FFL must enter a reference to the new book, page, and line number in the disposition side of the updated record, and use the new entry to record the date of the theft or loss, the ATF incident number, and the local authority incident number.  This entry must be recorded not later than 7 days following discovery of the theft or loss.
