|a dealer at the show had a WWII 1928a1 for 17K and a M1 for 14K. yeah right. this is the same guy who bought 2 M1's from a Vietnam vet for 8k total! then he sold one for like 13k. i think this one for 14k is the other.|

|nope wasn't dennis. was a local SOT, like elk grove arms or something. he posted a thompson on Sturm a few weeks back.|
Setting price aside, how did the Thompsons look? I've been talking to him about the M1.

I talked to a doctor at the show who had just paid $15k for a 1921 Colt with a 3 digit serial number. I didn't see the gun but he thinks he got a good deal. He's buying automatic weapons as an investment - also owns an Uzi, a Colt AR-16 and a couple of others. It must be nice to have that kind of money.

Sounds like the Doc is the perfect mark for Class III dealers. He must be taking his investment cues from the Forbes magazine article. $15K for a Colt 1921A 3 digit? That gun must have been a 50%er with WWII parts waiting for the less iniitiated to take the bait.
