I have been told by the publisher that The Ultimate Thompson Book is down to only five copies in the warehouse.

I have 136 copies that I will sell at $150 plus $10 UPS. If you want another copy to be in pristine shape since your

personal copy has been read a lot, then now is the time to buy one.

 

Also have the NEW book on Thompson Manufacturing Gages available at $100.

 

Autographed copies done gladly upon request.

 

Get them while the getting is Good.

 

As they say in Chicago.." Buy early and often..."   or something like that.

I noticed The Ultimate Thompson Book (TUTB) is no longer listed for sale at the Collector Grade Publications website. I suspect it is now officially out of print. Tracie still has copies available and I would guess there are a few copies with various booksellers across the country. There is little doubt it will become hard to find as time moves on. Remember the price increase of American Thunder II when it went out of print prior to the release of American Thunder III. TUTB is a must have book for every Thompson enthusiast.

the book is undeniably beautiful! I am eternally grateful to Tracy for his work and my American friend who helped me get my copy. I think it's very good that the circulation is sold out. looking forward to The Ultimate Thompson Book 2 (TUTB2). I think Tracy has enough information to publish a second edition.

Get it or regret it!

 

Once books are out of print the price skyrockets!

Does this book have a list showing the original purchasers of the guns by serial number and date (or is that another book)?

The ultimate Thompson book has some serial numbers. But the book for Colt serial numbers is Colt Thompson serial numbers by Gordon Hergstag. He has passed but you my still find his book. They are not cheap new around $400 thats two volumes

Thank you Tracie! I am very happy with the book and glad I jumped on a copy. It weighs as much as a loaded drum! Very well constructed. And even personalized! If you haven't yet, get one while you can. R

Tracie,

    Sir, do you own that particular colored sectional cutaway diagram of the Thompson that is inside the cover of your book?  I would love to have a large poster made of that particular image.  Any advise welcome.  Thank You in advance, and for your fine book as well,  JB

I am sure most of the forum members have Tracie's great book, The Ultimate Thompson Book. If you like the Thompson submachine gun, especially the history of this iconic firearm, it is a must have for your library. It is now out of print and most likely will never be reprinted. I have noticed the price is rising on other sites for the few volumes left on dealers shelves or for used copies. Now is the time to obtain an autographed copy directly from Tracie. His small supply will not last forever.

 

If you decide to order, have Tracie include an application for The American Thompson Association and a flyer for the 2021 Hill Family All Thompson Show & Shoot on August 6 & 7, 2021. It is certain to be an epic event. This is the is the 100th anniversary of the Model of 1921 Thompson submachine gun. You will meet many of the members you converse with on this great forum. I hope to see you there!

Tracie,

My copy of 'Gaging a Thompson' arrived in the mail this morning, and I am not disappointed by the book.

Reference to the foreword, in the UK it is ‘gauging’, another idiosyncrasy of the English language interpretation on each side of the Atlantic.
 
Thanks again, I am indebted to you and the other authors who frequent this forum, for my knowledge gained on the Thompson SMG over the years.
 
Stay safe
Richard
