IIRC, there are five Model of 1919s transferable and in private hands. I think all were displayed by TCA at the 2003 NRA annual meeting in Orlando.

Dont quote me on this, because I am old and on the road, so I cant access any of my resources.

I think the OP is talking about the model 1919 Thompson? Right? Or are you talking about the m1919a4?

Yes there are 5 existing 1919 Thompsons in the US that are transferable. sn 7, 11, no number, 17 and 26.

Oh not a belt feed Maybe a 1917 or Mi tank carbine or Garand.Yeah its the internet we have to spell it all out now. Never had a 1919 Thompson. And probably only one for sale when i was looking. And never did care to own one. Kind of like Japanese rifles you have to acquire the taste.But for those hard core Thompson collectors a early model would have to be on the list.However not enough to go around.Like FG-42 Sniper models.And correct M1C Marine Garands. Pick the poison. glad Tracie set it all straight. RON
