Sorry, looks like it was pulled. It was a very nice AO 1928A1 "properly deactivated" by the French.

Sgt., It was another of those Russian Thompsons which have been cut up to "make the world safe," just like the British thought when they largely disarmed their populace between WWI and WWII. sad.gif So who came to the rescue (primarily) when the Nazis began grabbing real estate all over Europe? Why, the 'Arsenal of Democracy," the U.S.A., of course. My only question is: who will be our, 'Arsenal of Democracy,' when and if the U.S. is ever invaded? Remember, the number of men in uniform (under the American flag) is the smallest it has been in decades and they are spread very thinly around the world. blink.gif "Never happen,"you say. cool.gif Well, just ask the average contemporary Briton if they don't feel invaded by violent crimimals, since their politicians largely disarmed the British populace for the second time within a century (creating a skyrocketing violent crime increase, 28% in the last year alone), about three years ago. I found this information on the Reuters website. Check out some of the foreign news sites and wipe the cobwebs from your eyes. The liberal media want to keep us ignorant of how crime has greatly increased in many nations around the world where so-called 'gun control-gun registration- gun confiscation has taken place'. These nations include, but are not limited to: Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, and Mexico. It's far easier to disarm a blind man. That is why I call the liberal news media and politicians cowards! mad.gif Vote, all of you patriots out there (and let your politicians know how you feel)! If not now, when? If not you, who? ph34r.gif Regards, Walter

P.S. Maybe we can learn from the mistakes of others (including other nations). It is certainly a lot less painful than the, 'school of hard knocks'. blink.gif

I happend to have been looking at it before it got pulled. Saved some photos and information. Serial number is A.O. 61623 in case anybody wants to record that somewhere. The seller was "ring-wraiths" if someone like Murry who lives overseas might want to try and get ahold of it.

I think I saved all the photo's, damn good looking 28. I had one photo chopped and was using it for my back drop but decided I better put the better half's pic back up. She feel's insecure when I drool over my toys as she call's them and not her.
