I already own an M1928A1 & M1 Thompson, and I've been thinking about adding an
"original" Colt model for a few years.
As most are aware, there seem to be way more of these for sale on the open market
than there were even just a few years ago, and at (generally) less expensive prices. One
reason for this appears to be a lot of former police guns that have recently been sold to
So anyway, seems to be more of a "buyer's market" right now and possibly a good time
to pick one up; thus my post. A few more details about what I'd like to find...
- Original 1921A or 1921AC configuration preferred (given I already own a 1928 WW2 model)
- Condition/Price - I don't have a strict "hard" limit, although let me be clear I'm not looking
for a $100K gun... and probably, under $50K in this market (based on numerous offerings
I've seen). E.g.,, even Reuben has a 1921AC not moving at ~$31K: https://dealernfa.com/shop/7244-1921/
- I already own the Tom Davis guide (among other Thompson reference books)
OK, that's all I can think of for now.
Thanks in advance for everyone's suggestions,
