Noticed a nice Handbook up for auction on evilbay. I am almost surprised that evilbay has not pulled it for violation of some standard of theirs. The handbook looks in good shape.

I believe George Numrich had a bunch done in the '60s.


Not another Thompson accessory redo/reproduction! Surely he numbered them...???

John, Jr.,
Since you are new to the Colt arena, I feel it is my duty to tell you to watch out for the reproduction Colt M-16 accessories biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif .

Do you think I could get much money for this on Ebay?

Sgt,

Sadly (not for you) I think you would get a lot of money on eBay for that.

You should feel somewhat guilty though; you forgot to add a "7" after the second "2."

Norm

PS - I never knew "General" Thompson sewed! Maybe he got this from J. Edgar Hoover! laugh.gif

Didn't you know the General sewed Thompson patches on all his uniforms?

I can't say I have ever heard of a reproduction Handbook from anyone.
We do have reproduction Catalogs and Brochures, but not Handbooks.
Anyone else have some thoughts on that?

Thanks Ron that is what I thought (NOT) a reprint.
I have heard MINT ones of these have sold for $350!
This one looks like a bargain at $29 the last time I looked.
