Friend of mine is selling his Auto Ordnance M1 Thompson and has this case that I have never seen before.

 

Can someone tell me about this and possible value?

 

 

 

Thanks,

Kent

Couple different pictures - one with the M1 in the case - anyone know what it is and value?

 

Thanks,

Kent

 Obviously, an LE weapon in the past. Is it transferable? Case is nothing special. Handmade and not that old. Has Phillips head screws.

I would be willing to bet the case was mada and housed a 1928 or a 1921 before the M1

Yep. Looks like there's just enough room for a compensator. And I see a circle depressed in the fabric just ahead of that barrel which confirms the use with a '28.....maybe a '21?

Thanks for the replies. Yes it is transferrable rough gun for sure. I am sure for being in the case so much. Somewhat pitted and refinished.
