Yes, its a discussion forum, but not an argument forum. You are entitled to your opinion but
its only YOUR opinion. I would bet that this gun sells for within 10% of the asking price which means
he has started it exactly where it should be. His asking price is probably a little higher than what he
will take. He can always lower the price like you are doing with your sandblasted parkerized M1928A1.
Comparing this gun to refinished Colts at $30K is not a relevant comparison. Citing 5 posts from
Sturm is not exactly exhaustive research.
And here we are at the tip of the spear - the ultimate Thompson fanatics on this forum who are
tuned in to everything. But there is a big wide world of Thompson buyers and sellers out there who
have never heard of machinegunboards or Sturmgewehr. There are a couple of MG dealers here
that do shows and I am always astonished at how high their prices are. Yet they sell the stuff. If you
are a doctor, lawyer, or Indian Chief and you saw Public Enemies or Sahara and decide you want
a Thompson, $3000 either way means nothing to you.
The seller has done nothing wrong and I wish him all the best in selling his gun at a price that
is acceptable to him, not you.
