My question is, I had an ar15 built and it didn't have a serial number on it nor was it registered, I am an army vet with no history of violent crimes, except one time when I had an incident with the police were they tried saying I assaulted them but those charges were dropped a year and a half later after fighting it. Well I don't have a CCW permit and one day my brother decides to take my truck. He was under the influence of alcohol, he's also a felon. He had a suspended license, and he drove and I was passenger, we got pulled over and they found my rifle, they charged him with a couple felonies because I also had a ten round magazine and two boxes of ammunition in the back of my SUV is where I had my rifle and magazine which was not in the chamber but in a bag with my ammunition, I tried to tell the police that it was my weapon and that I had built it myself, they still charged my brother and took him to jail, we live in Bakersfield CA I was wondering if there's any chance I can get my rifle back?
