Guarantee that is a GREAT deal. It seems to have been tweaked and worked on, as is represented by the Lyman "L" site (could have come that way from the factory). Suprised it is still listed, if it isn't already gone.

catnipman & 1930sRust,

I just sent payment for that 28 today.
It is set up like a late 1928 A1 w/ Savage Lower complete w/ Savage internals.
And best of all it's a shooter, which is just what I was looking for.

Sorry,
Johnny

The1930sRust & Sgt,

Thanks.
Yeah, I can't believe the gun lasted this long. I was sure I'd lose the gun because I corresponded with the seller for 4 weeks before committing.
Needless to say I'm very pleased.
I'll keep the Thompson Board up to date.

Thanks for the Feedback,
Johnny

Ron A,

Thanks for that.
I truly feel I researched the gun well and made a good decision in the end.
I just can't wait to shoot it.

Stay Safe,
Johnny
