It's not 99.9%, at least if the picture is a good one. I would say maybe it's worth, w/drum, about $20k.

Yawn
They had this originally for sale at $40k.
If it were really 99% it would have sold by now.

Devlin,
Compare the left side profile pic of your ebay grip with the one in the above ad. They look damn similar. Now maybe you mixed up the intended grip for sale with another non-Colt grip when you posted the pic for your ad.

Sig,
You betcha. If it was legit it would have sold long ago.

Devlin,
Look at it this way, the only indication of what you say is a Colt grip are the 2 pics you have in your ad. Now even a cursory squint at those pics says that grip is no different looking than the type affixed to the TSMG in the above ad. It hardley takes an in person examination to render a judgement. Why not post the pics you have from your ad along with better more detailed pics of the same grips together on this board? Why do you suppose there are no takers on your startng price of $45 after 3 days of a 5 day ad? Could it be that the pics you provided aren't in sync with the ad copy?

Can't tell by the picture.

If truly 99% it would fetch a nice price, but would have to have a close-up inspection.

This of course would not be a shooter.

yeah ever since i started playing ww2 video games i've been interested in thompsons, hopefully one day i'll own one

i've actually been reading posts since the old board was up just registerd with this one

what i've been thinking is if I ever get one I think id like to get a west hurley m1, mainly because there c&r, and there not as expensive as org ww2 guns - the only problem being they only made 6-700 or something, right?

Remember... There is no such thing as "Colt Wood." Except perhaps AF's ding dong whilst looking at his overstamp!! laugh.gif

Remington made/crafted the wood. They did the same with the barrels. So to be proper (as we know AF LOVES to be), lets call it wood crafted by Remington and sold to Colt and/or barrels crafted and produced by Remington and sold to Colt. Colt didn't make compensators or sights either. Hell, they didn't even make magazines... ok, rant over...

On with the topic. BTW is that the Arkansas State Police gun that TD was telling me about?
