Well, several months back I bought my (first) Tommy. It's not fancy like some of you guys 28 Colts, this is a re-weld Savage, but it definitely has drool appeal for me. It took months to Fm 3 to Fm 3, since NFA branch lost the Fm 3. Anyway, he got a certified copy and it arrived yesterday. Hopefully 30-45 days it will come home to me. It's been pending for about 45 days to me.

Sorry, no pictures, yet, but I did earlier post some photos that the SOT took for me before I bought it.

Just in time for D-Day celebrations.

So, now, is there some place I can check the receiver SN and determine the birthday of my Savage? Also, my SOT said it had proof marks indicating Lend/Lease, but the refinish job, kind of made them hard to read.

I know it's not a pegigreed stallion like the Colts, but I'm still a happy papa.

v188: Post your Tommy's number and we will give you a S.W.A.G. on when it was made or better yet, buy Frank's excellent book "American Thunder" and learn even more about your Tommy.
