Thompson Home W/ Surprise
Posted 10 May 2004 - 07:46 AM
Opened the trapdoor in the butt stock, and much to my surprise, out came a crinkle-finished oil can!!!!
Examiners were good to me this week. Four guns cleared, the Thompson, an MP-5, an American 180, and an M-16 receiver. Less than 60 days from going pending. Thanks Ms. Savage and Alma McCoy, Mark Scott in Chattanooga too.
American 180 is a hoot!!! If you dont have one, you need one.
I'll get a picture or two up later.

| Noticed that the roll stamps on the right side of the receiver are lighter on top than the bottom. Common?|
If it is what I am thinking, any chance of it being refinished?
Usually that is one way to tell if an item is reblued as the lettering is not a crisp and deep as others.
Also, adding up the value of those items comes to a pretty penny to be bought at once. Do you happen to be the person who won the PowerBall the other month were you?

Did some trading for the MP-5. Got the 1928 courtesy of Mark Scott and a deal we did together on an estate of about 40 MG's. Took the gun in lieu of cash. One of the sons kept a LNIB 1921, with drums, sticks and matching hard case. Picked up the American 1890 and receiver from a local estate at a price I couldn't pass up.
About 2 years worth of wheeling and dealing happened all at once.

Do y'all still have that transferable Stoner 63?

Minimi went away for cash and an MP40 and Ingram Modle 6. The only guns left are the MP40, an AC556 Jim kept, the Thompson I have and the Colt registered MG42 Mark kept (he and I have traded on it and if all goes well, it comes home one day).
