Value Of A 1921 Colt, Serial Number 41?
Posted 04 June 2004 - 11:17 AM
This is the problem with a lot of Colt TSMG serial numbers that have no documented history. When one of these (especially the first commercial serial numbered gun to roll off the assembly line), shows up after being lost for 83 years there are a lot of questions that may never be answered to anyone's satisfaction.

I have not read yet any answer to your question about amnesty registering a gun - with no questions asked. Reason I am curious is I have s/n "15043" which we know is a fake, but still it is registered as 15043.
My curiousity comes from this gun having the same story - registered but (probably) not the original s/n.
The big question - were there people faking s/n's on guns prior to 1968? I dount there was any collectability in these guns at the time (I don't recall - I was 10!!).

Thanks for the reply,
I would guess the same as you have about the amnesty - no questions asked could cover a lot of things.

While we are on the topic of NAC Thompsons, I would be interested in any serial numbers anyone has seen (or heard of) of NAC Thompsons with Colt receivers. Based on my limited research, I would guess the number is rather small. I am always looking to increase my knowledge in this area. Any information anyone has regarding NAC Thompsons with Colt receivers would be greatly appreciated.
