Greetings all,


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,

Thanks to all who have contacted me thus far-- I've answered all the PM's sent to me

at present.


The "Golden Gun" (link above) is interesting, and no doubt a nice gun for the price; but for

now, I think I'm looking for something with the more traditional / original finish.
