Remember that Roger Cox stipulated that he knew of another 200 Colt TSMG's in police departments around the country, but he either didn't get the chance to examine them and record their serial numbers, or they asked him not to reveal the fact that they did have a TSMG in their arsenals. No doubt a fair amount of the PD TSMG's that were recently "discovered" were some of the weapons Cox already located, but couldn't document.

Just my 2 cents worth. I acquired AO 38,---X from the Delaware State Police in the early 1980's It came with 3 other AO guns in the AO150---Xrange. US is ground off and C stamped over the 1. No military insp marks visible. All guns matched upper and lower. Smooth bbls with comps. and L rear sights without protective sides.

Beautiful gun, but I spotted something unusual.  Is it my imagination, or is the "L" rear sight brazed on rather than riveted?  I can't see rivet heads.

And I think this one has been through arsenal rebuild, since the smooth barrel looks to be parked, rather than blued.

Drum looks like it is in excellent shape, too.  Overall, a very nice gun.

The sight is riveted. They're flush to the sight and don't show in the pic. The barrel does appear to be parked.

Lancer,
That is sooooo nice!
I love the park smooth barrel with a vertical grip.
Real nice combo and clean as a whistle.
Congrats,
Zamm
