Wow, that is interesting! blink.gif The Urban Armory's number is local to me, (716) area code. That means they are located in Western New York State. I know that Class II manufacturers are allowed to operate in New York, but I had no idea they were that close. They are probably located in Buffalo, or one of its suburbs. Remember, the Crosby drums were manufactured in Buffalo. smile.gif cool.gif Regards, Walter

Unless he has gotten a license recently, Urban Armory acts as a broker for firearms. Not sure he has them in his possession.

Going down the list...a lot of the prices seem to be 15%-20% higher than current levels of NFA stuff...nice variety though,...`schnellfire`...that must be a one of a kind...$9500. for mp40 tube gun...just a little high...yet the thompson seems about the right price range...good luck to the new owner, wink.gif

Its good to see one in a reasonable price range. By the time you add in the drum and parts, seems like a good opportunity by today's standards. I'm sure it won't last long.

I called, since I've been looking for a 28 to add to my collection. Ed told me it's a WH gun w/ Bridgeport internals.

$15.5K for a WH TSMG with AO Bridgeport internals? There goes the last vestiges of the reasonable price range scenario.

The demand is there. An it WILL sell but it may take about 2-3 months of posting before a buyer comes along. (This has been my observation with Thompsons and these prices. Also seems to be true for the housing market nowadays.)

They told me that it has only been there since 7-19-04 and they thanked me for the 11,500.00 offer but said they had sold 5 at that price since Feb huh.gif and they would wait and get some suck.. I mean another buyer to pay their price.............Thank god I found a nice one at my price tongue.gif ......Pics to follow I hope... wink.gif

If its a westy, then that company is misrepresenting the gun.

Arrgg, a Westie at 15K is out pacing even Thompson greed. In a few years, I can pay for my house with my two Thompsons. Naah! I'd rather have the Thompsons. Now I get it; that explains why the value of these things have gone nutty.

While you could look at it as "misrepresenting" the gun, the first think Ed said after I asked about the gun was that it was a WH. He made it very clear immediately. Actually he has two WH 28's. Then he went on to explain the internals. The other gun has Savage wood and (if I remember correctly) Savage internals.

QUOTE
auto ord 28a bridgport parts drum and stick $15,500



This is the ad (the Thompson part)

28a would not indicate a Westy, as they are not marked as such (there is no "a", the 28's are even marked M1 in a different place too blink.gif ).

Bridgeport, however mispelled, would further indicate a WW2 gun from the Auto Ord factory.

So to me, its misrepresentation. Could the guy at least place the "WH" initials in the ad? Nope, he wanted to misrepresent the gun and waste everyones time. Buddy Hinton should zap him! You've got to love buddy, he is such a board nazi! laugh.gif
