ATTENTION Thompson Collectors.

This is a notice for another NEW product from Gordon’s Thompson Accessories.

I have now reproduced the original pull-through thong, bore brush for the Thompson. (This is the little brass T handle, with special string 16” long, and bore brush) This is an essential part of the original equipment from the little Spare Parts Box for the Thompson machine gun.

This rare piece is made in the finest tradition, using real horse hair, as was the original from the early Thirties.

I will return to Los Angeles on July 1st. I will be marketing these pieces after July 4th.

The price each will be $35.00. Check or MO to:

Gordon Herigstad

1632 W. 10th Street

San Pedro, California 90732



NOTE: The little Chamber Brush, with the bent handle, which accompanies the Bore Brush, will also be available after July 15. This will be the early style, which is also made with horse hair, not the WW2 style made during the War. This will also be $35.00, when it is available.

hardrede - from a marketing standpoint:

Size: CI is good. CX is better. Let manufacturing costs dictate final size.

Color: paint scheme is ...different. Let's think additional options for consumer. Market has changed since Henry Ford entered marketplace.

Markings: Agree for prototypes. Let's discuss further for production items.

Price: Not conducive to longevity in marketplace unless you live off a trust fund. Let's discuss further after prototypes prove successful.

Question: When do you expect testing of prototypes to commence? biggrin.gif

Be sure to mark the repro bore brush so that it cannot be confused with an original and invite fraud !
