"Bargin" Extreme Rarity on Ebay

I have set here reading Ron-Colt/21A's constant barrage on the increasing prices of Thompson
related material. Not without a rolling of the eyes and a few sighs.

This however is the deal breaker. I now believe him. .wink. biggrin.gif

I bow to the master.

Ebay will pull it because he (or she) said that it would hold more than 10 rounds.

As Tony Blair would say, perhaps the "right honorable gentleman" with the rare magazine ought to team up with the guy that has those super-duper magazine springs; they could rule the world! I just counted up all my stick mags...gosh, I'm rich!!!

Interesting, but I note there are no bids yet other than the starting price of $9.99 which is about what it is worth. unsure.gif

I wish you could append comments to the different auction to help educate these people and actually ask them to justify their BS.

Ron, there was no disrespect intended, on my part. smile.gif I tend to agree with you on the outrageous increase in Thompsons and related parts/accessories during the last 20-30 years. I believe these increases are, primarily, due to unwise Ferderal Laws, regarding automatic and semiautomatic weapons and/or accessories. ohmy.gif blink.gif cool.gif Regards, Walter
