Does the "U" make it more valuable? I just bought one Saturday at a local gun store for $460. Little surface rust that came off with WD 40 and 0000 steel wool. However, one blade on the rotor is bent slightly out of position, so I'll have to send it off to Merle to get that taken care of.

only $1,200.00 naw..ask $1,500.00 is a lot better,or even $2,000.00 this way only a few can afford it,then when they decide to off it,they will want $2,500.00 to $3,000.00 we must keep 'the legend"alive here............

or just hold on to it after the devine auction and get in on the hype,and ask $5,000.00 at that price you can put wheel's on it and drive it to work...............wink!!!


have fun,take care,ron/colt21a

Unbelievable!!! I wonder if you will actually get the funds. I just bought a New York L drum 1st variation with 1942 Avery pouch for $1250 on Sturmgewher last week. I need a second job to keep up these prices.

Wolfer,
It appears that Kahr pays as much attention to their repro cases as they do their repro Thompson's.

hey thanks and good luck bidding....but i do have a choice..i can end the auction and cancel bids...i hate to do it..but i will if i have to..its my stuff and i will get atleast a grand...and i'd hate to see it go for even a grand..i'm looking for 12-1500.....if you break down all the parts and price them each it'll be over a grand...its really a very nice kit..best of everything i could get my hands on..no sloppy worn out out of wack stuff...i've seen everyday worn out 28 kits go for a grand and dang it..i'll get a good price or it won't go anywhere...lol best of luck though....i have people making me offers to end the auction and sell out right...them kinda offers are welcome but i'm gonna watch and see how the auction does before i jump to selling it off of ebay...oh and the case..its very nice also...they do pay alot of attention to their stuff..the repro lyman sight is a very very good piece..i've compared it to the original..only differance i see is it don't have lyman stamped on it...just as good otherwise in my opinion....thanks

Hmm why didn't you put a reserve on it... The way you have it set up now, it should sell to the highest bidder regardless of price... That is a bit deceptive... I've been high bidder on auctions that have been pulled at the last moment, and then relisted... And I have to tell you I was not a happy camper... One person overbid me, shill bid it, then tried to sell it under another name. I turned it into ebaY™ at 9 PM on a Sunday night and when I went to my computer Monday morning ebaY™ had suspended both of his/hers acounts. It's like I'm going to sell to the highest bidder, maybe.

Oh and BTW it is illegal to pass on the PayPal fees... If ebaY™ catches that, they will cancel your auction... Ask me how I know... JFYI

well...it helps cut down on the listing fees....normally i start the bids at what i want for it...but in this case...if i done that it would cost alot to list it and plus it would hurt the "i'm gonna win this dang auction no matter how much it costs me" addiction people have...i've always had better luck getting 3 or 4 people fighting over something.....i can see how it would make someone ill to end an auction they really wanted to win though...but if they really want it...they will pay my price....i'm more than happy to end the auction for an offer that'll make me happy.....but i do see your point

Wolfer,
It seems your powers of observation may be as corrupt as your approach to selling your wares at auction. Since you neglected to put in a reserve price protecting your auction from a too low bid, then if only one person bids an amount lower than you have secreted somewhere in your imagination, they are the proper winners. That is the way the game is played. Your trial balloon approach is not only unethical, but against ebay regs. Thanks for warning the Thompson board community how you operate.
