Purchased 1928a1. Need To Restore It

If there's anything offensive or vinegar-like in my postings please let me be the first to know.
I'm pretty sure that in 150 years from now, some museum curator will appreciate that I did not refinish my M1928 Thompson.

Hawkeye_Joe, I said in your world, not the planet.
Floridac3, If I were you I would have that gun restored but only by a professional like PK. This is not a kitchen table project. I am the biggest advocate of leave them alone unless they are so far gone that it makes no difference. What you bought there is potential and now you can make it the way you want it without hurting the original finish since there is none.

How then was Jack Ruby's gun (the one used to ice Oswald) allowed to be auctioned off? And since nobody was tried for the Valentine shooting, what crime do the feds say this TSMG was used to commit?

It is hard to make a decision based on pictures but this one looks like a refinish may be in order. I would ship it to PK for an estimate of refinish and an expert opinion on if it is currently safe to shoot. If safe to fire, I would shoot the the barrel off it and then have PK install an IMA parts kit and restore it to like new condition. And then shoot it some more
Congratulations on your purchase.
