It looks like I've finally bought my Thompson. I got a pretty good price ($10K/ who knows?) on a Savage M1A1 reweld. It was welded by a guy in PA pre-86, don't recall his name right now. So it's not a Pearl. Looks pretty nice in the detailed photos.

Any thoughts on my purchase? Did I over purchase, about right? Now I need to find some more mags.

I've got several NFA weapons, but this purchase really is getting me psyched!!!! I've wanted a Tommy a long time.

Thanks guys,

A new guy to the board.

If you picked it up for 10K, that would be a tad high to my way of thinking for a cut gun thats not C&R. Dont worry, it will soon be worth 30K (10 years or so)

Take care

Other then the reweld deal, I would like to see how someone customized the receiver on an M1A1 for a 1928 buttstock. Could this be a WH type kit?

I had contact with the seller (John) who advised the re-weld receiver was attached to a "Savage" lower. He no doubt was refering to a 1928A1 lower. He did indicate it was a good shooter and that the upper and lower "were pretty tight." I had always thought the two would slide together and function but the fit would be loose. He advises that is not the case with this set-up.


sounds like you got a good shooter !!

Enjoy !
