That case is a beauty !  I recently bought a nice vintage saxaphone case from ebay,  and it's too small :(  so now my vintage violin case that's also too small has company.  I'm not having the best of luck.

Chop a couple inches off with hacksaw,file emry and cold blue touch up. Add a M1 style sight and you have a custom piece that fit.At that point bolt a red dot to the top and custom ar 15 buffer tube on a stock slide.Oh yea!refinish with case hardened steel look with black gunkote trim.

It will sell. Look closely, then bid like crazy. I think what folks are missing here is that there looks like a shot mag in the group!

 

But, the barrel or comp is overtightened about 30 degrees. Comp still pinned to barrel, but something isn't right with the gun other than the obvious!

You're looking at the wrong size case if they don't fit?

Late 1890's wooden violin case I Frenched lined to carry my tommy in.

Gangsters carried their Thompsons in suitcases.
The violin case thing is a myth you cant get nothing in em Ive tried.
A viola case maybe but in a suitcase the weapon is locked and loaded ready to go less the stock of course.

I like the Golf Bag method as seen in
"Some Like It Hot "

Besides more people play Golf..than the Violin.

Not surprisingly, Proxibid yanked the Thompson since it was a Full Auto. 

 

I am curious if it is still on any other platform, like Live Auctioneers or HiBid?

Andrey makes high quality cases. He will custom make any case in any configuration you like. He made a case for me and dealing with him was a pleasure.

 

 

Did anyone else notice that the case was located in the Ukraine?

After coming home from the TATA show and shoot last week I noticed this old thread at the top and noticed the fact in mentioned Andrey from Ukraine. Andrey is a real gent, and an excellent craftsman. If you attended the 2022 show and shoot you saw some of his handiwork. My little display was more or less dedicated to him and displayed a case he did for me which arrived 2 days after the war began. It is a Boss and Company of London case made of oak wrapped in leather, vintage mid to late 1800's, which originally held a dual pair of shotguns owned by the Duke of Hamilton. Andrey bought it at a Uk auction, then gutted the case and rebuilt the interior to hold a Thompson and all the accessories. He's still doing business and due to current events, his hobby of case making is now the primary source of income for he and his family. Shipping currently takes about 2 weeks to arrive from the time it ships. Attached is a pic of the Duke of Hamilton case, along with two pistol cases he did for me recently. Please PM me if you would like a link to his Ebay store.

That is a beautiful case. A real centerpiece of any Tommy gun display. Andrey built a custom Thompson case for me. From the first inquiry to delivery he really was first class.
