Hello all! Rust here. I have decided to sell all of my Thompson stuff and take up the accordion and bonsai. I'm kidding...

 

I am, however, offering for sale an original Colt 1921 actuator. I bought this as a parts kit (actuator, buffer tubes, and buffers) twenty years ago on eBay. I subsequently sold off the buffer tube and accoutrements, and dropped the actuator in my (gasp) West Hurley. I decided last year that this piece of history was simply too valuable to potentially break inside a West Hurley. When I discovered that inside every 1928 actuator there is a 1921 actuator just trying to get out, I had PK mill down a 28 for my gun. So I put this original away. But I figure there has to be a Colt enthusiast out there that could use it. 

 

I can assure it is original. However. I do not know if it has been refinished. Nevertheless, it is in very good shape with characteristic rub marks and dings. 

 

$850.00. Prefer PayPal Friends or money order. I pay shipping USPS. I will hold funds for the prospective buyer to inspect it. If you decided it's not as presented, I will refund minus shipping back to me. Thanks for looking and give her a good home! Rust

Appears to be a nice, early, flat actuator for the square slot. Nice score!
