I like the quick change barrel and the shorter stock. The rest of the mods not so much.

It's interesting to see the customizations/adjustments they made to fit the weapon to their preferences.  They do indicate having all the original parts included as part of the sale. 

 

I expect most buyers would want the Thompson in it's original configuration.  If I knew the seller, I'd suggest converting back to the original configuration for sale and either include the other parts or sell them separately.  In general, the more something is customized, the more a buyer might question what else has been done.

That gun is local.  It looks even worse in person.

The guy who is selling it is not the guy who butchered it.

Looks like someone took a West Hurley and modified for their shooting enjoyment, prolly had a lot of fun modifying and shooting it when it was $500 new. If it were a real TSMG, modifications would be a travesty.

Is it not a real TSMG? If not, why isnt it?
