Same guy that has or had a $10.5 WH has this prize. If it's a FA gun, well maybe. If not, get out the crack pipe!

It says converted 1927 so my guess is full auto.

Not that I'm interested in purchasing, but I was curious about this one myself. I dropped him an email and asked if it was FA and also requested pictures. I'll let you know if he gets back to me. As fast as Thompsons sell, I'll bet it disappears before he gets a chance to answer.

"A picture is (or would be) worth a thousand words."

The part about it using "modified" magazines sounds like a WH/Kahr 27A1 to me. dry.gif

It would be intresting to see.

It would be obscene to ask that kind of price for a Kahr 27. I was thinking it might be one of commemoratives. Well, we'll see.

I received a response. Apparently this is a semi that had been converted to full auto with a registered kit. I'm still waiting for pictures and the make of the gun. I'm guessing it will be a converted late model semi, probably without a fire control selector. If that's the case, I don't see the advantage of this, since you could almost get the W.H. full auto for this price.

True but then the W.H. full auto you get would not have been assembled by Mr. Numrich himself which I am sure justifies the extra few grand in price. biggrin.gif rolleyes.gif laugh.gif tongue.gif

Not sure why I didn't think of that. You always did have a NAC for such things. biggrin.gif

But NAC guns sell for less than non NAC guns. So wouldn't one assembled by George himself be discounted below a run of the mill WH gun?

I remember one guy telling me that he had a 27A1 that had an extensivly modified 28 bolt and acuator in it. The receiver had been modified also and registered as a machine gun before the 86 ban.

Who knows whats out there! blink.gif

I never heard back from the seller. I wonder if it's sold, or maybe he just read our comments and decided we weren't worth a response. I would still like to know it that piece had been an early conversion. Anyone else hear anything?

For those of you who might be interested, here is an update on this conversion gun: It has FA selector switch and is definitely one of the 27s that had a registered conversion.

Figure a sear, or firing pin, conversion registered part is worth $5K-$6K today and add the price of the weapon, $1K-$2K?, and you got maybe $8K.

well well.one of my babies.it's now worth $25,000.00 wink!!{since i owned it} ha!ha!

i know who i sold it to,and i don't think it is the same guy selling it.it was also a range rental gun for awhile.

i am sure reblued by now...............it was half the price that it is for sale now for...............offer him $8,500.00 as i am sure he is still making a killing at that...........it was a semi 27 converted to full auto............and registered as such.before 1986...................

it would be something different to have because it still say's semi 27 thompson carbine on the side of it.unless since remarked................go for it you can't lose............
and its a full auto.......
i have no intention of buying it back..............just nice to know something turned up for somebody.............wink!! take care,ron
