Buying Colt Thompson - How Much To Pay?
Posted 10 February 2004 - 11:29 PM
I am about to buy a Colt Thompson. The gun has never been refinished, approx. 80% luster with some scratches due to former life in a PD. It's marked on the side as a model of 1927 and the auto mark was also milled off the selector. The markings match the pictures of other 1927 Thompsons I have seen in the various books. It unfortunately has regular full auto internals (and fires in full/semi) and the original internals are long lost. However, it does have a unique overall look with the 27 markings and I think that makes it an interesting piece.
I figure I can sell my amnesty registered M1A1 to pay for part of this. I've worked out a price with a friend who owns the gun (and it's steep!). How much would you pay for this setup? It's not coming with any drums or accessories. After I get some estimates from the group here and I seal the deal I'll share how much I'm throwing into this gun. To that person I've previously emailed about this gun feel free to repost your prior estimation.

you might want to try Recon Ordnance to see if he has any original 1927 internals for sale if you want original
