Both were bought from wonderful members of this forum.  Mine is the A with the matching Colt era C drum mag and my dad's is the AC with the Colt era stick mag.  My dad always wanted a Colt Thompson ever since I got mine back in 2016 and 3 years later, he got his.  This was his first and only machine gun purchase.  

 

All original finish guns and all original parts.  Photographed with a 1913 Colt 1911 and 1918 Colt 1911 of mine.

Very nice guns.

Bet there's not very many father and sons , both owning Colt TSMG.

You and dad are certainly unique.

I don't count F&S teams where the father gives a gun to his kid ,only those teams that each spend their hard earned cash.

Thanks!  He enjoys it that's for sure!   I gave him that Colt era mag for it too so it is complete.
