Once again the Internet has opened the flood gates to a number of gun enthusiasts, but not necessarily educated gun enthusiasts.

Perhaps there are just collectors out there willing to pay these exorbitant prices because of what the Thomspons are, not what they were...cost makes not a Thompson--it just is!

I say that by the year 2010, which is not that far away, a WH will be selling for $20K.

Imagine what will happen to prices on the Thompson's 100 Year anniversary.

This guy is either an idiot or fishing for a sucker, a week or so ago he had a MP-40 on Sturm. asking something like $17K. I have no doubt that a WH M1 will one day bring $13K, but not for quite some time.

I was over at my SOT's today. He had acquired a Colt 28 from a local PD. I asked him where it was, he said he got it sold, $30,000.00!

Now it was a fine looking rifle, and it had wonderful engraving of the Dept's name and badge, but $30K? I only have one, a Savage M1, but wow! that's alot of money.
