this sounds just like my gun, except mine wasn't parked, it was polished up a bit and blued (the former owner really wanted a Colt!!)
Anyway, that's what I have mine insured for.

Aahhhh, the most important part. I would rather own a beat-up Thompson that runs great rather than a museum piece that sputters.
Ok, I will be the first to start.....let the flames begin...
For the description $15K is too much.

I've gotta think the 15k is just a bit high but do agree with Phil, not high by much.

now a good cond. savage bringing that!!!
i guess thats why i will just hold on to the 21a and the 1928a1................and let everybody have "Thompson Greed" and watch all the dealers and collectors go crazy over it all,and sit back and just................relax............
they can hit $50,000 for all i care.just now the people that really want one can't afford one.that's the sad tale most of all..........even mr/above average soon will be out of the market...............
who here makes $100,000.00 a year,and will buy a gun for $50,000.00.............................not me............ and for the most part.95% of the guys here can't and won't either.................lets not let the thompson ego's burst.........
thats the sad fact's of it all................
maybe some gold is the answer................ummm!!
wink!! take care,ron

has been reparked and bead blasted several times
Internals do not match but it runs well
missing one eye, leg and ear, nickname is "Lucky"
Just kidding. $15,000 is way high for that condition. Can't give a value because I haven't seen one that rough for sale.........ever
The 1928 TSMG is always on my mind with WWII. All sorts of photos of US and Commonwealth troops in North Africa, Italy, and the Pacific. One that pops into mind is Capt Ron Speirs (sp?)from Ambrose's Band of Brothers book. The 1928 is my dream Thompson. Got my eye on one with Brit proofs and Brit wood in beauty condition for $15,000. Owner doesn't want to sell just yet. Damn.

That Washington Post article about the NRA Exhibit of Thompsons did not do anything to lower the price climb either.
