Savage Reweld Question(s)
Posted 02 March 2004 - 09:46 PM
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 for looking !
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)

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 !!
