    Is it running 4.5 firmware? If yes, then yes, it is. If no, then no, it isn't.

    The model number is not important. The version needs to be between 4.1 and 4.5. If it is too low, update using an actual game card. Never use the internet to update. If version is 5.0 or higher, you are not going to be able to use the Gateway, currently.

    It might work. I think most XLs have sw12+. Lower number the better your chances but it's no guarantee. Is this a new console you're buying?

    Then the best you can do is buy it and see what FW version it has.

    The highest reported Nintendo Serial Number that came with 4.5.0:
    Red/Black 3DS XL: SW1279xxxx x [DemiseScythe]
    Blue/Black 3DS XL: SW1278xxxx x [drfsupercenter] (SW1335xxxx x reported > 4.5.0 [tlee22])
    Pink/White 3DS XL: SW1286xxxx x [liquidsolidyetboth]

    -http://wiki.gbatemp.net/

    If the one you are interested in has serial sw10001 then it is most likely below 4.5. To use a gateway you will need firmware versions 4.1 to 4.5. My guess based on that serial number is that it might even be below 4.1 in which case you would need to get a game that was released on 4.1 to 4.5 and load the new firmware using that game. Also, if it is not a new and sealed package there is a good chance its been upgraded to firmware above 4.5. Anyway I hope that helps.
