|I suppose the seller will honor the price listed???|
Hmmm, sounds like someone is trying to track down a potential seller.

There is three pages of classified ads with 4-5 ads that mention TSMGs but didn't see any with ILL. area codes.
But , over on page 31 is a full page ad for,
F.J. Vollmer & Company
# 3 Towanda Rd
Bloomington, IL 61701-3485
The ad lists 20 1921 AC TSMGs with serial numbers and condition.
I can fax the ad to you.

I am also looking for serial numbers and provenance on my Colt Thompson # 8061.
I would need to search I am guessing no more than 3 years no later than 1980 (gotta look at an old Form 3 to double check that point).
I would be willing to pay any shipping and insurance costs and a reasonable fee.
Anyone here that can help me on this I would be most appreciative.

I'm not sure with out digging out some older copies but I don't think MGN started till 1985 or so.

| Sadly, Vollmers is now closed here in Bloomington IL. They were fun to visit when they were open (although their machinegun section was not a public area; MGs are illegal for citizens here in Illinois).|
Do you know the current status of Robbie or Fred and if they can be reached? The fax that Wayne W. provided definetly showed that my Colt was for sale by Vollmer's in November of 1991. I've got pretty good information on who it was sold to, but need to find out where Vollmer acquired it.
