Thompson X Drum Value
Posted 07 November 2004 - 10:15 AM
A new Thompson X drum came with my recent TSMG acquisition. I have an L drum to replace it in the case and have no use for the X drum.
Does anybody have any idea as to the value of a new X drum? What's the best way to sell it?

I would think if you could get $100 for it you would be doing good. I believe the areas where this would be attractive are as follows:
States such as Commifornia and New York and others where the local laws ban full capacity magazines, either for display or shooting.
A collector looking for a drum purely for display purposes.
I'd say offer here or on Sturmweher or even Evilbay (not sure if an X drum is legal there though).

Let me know what you want for it. I could use it for dispalys.

I don't post much, but I do read the Forum daily. Most of you guys provide answers to all my questions if I do a search!
As to Dan Block's conversion, I had him convert my "X" Drum and he did a great job!!! I am well pleased with his work and now I have a 30 rounder instead of a 10 rounder. If you want to do the conversion work yourself, Dan has the internal "Ring" only for sale too. Unfortunantly, the spring in the "X" Drum is not strong enough to make it into a 50 rounder.
Do a search for the 30 round conversion and you can see photos of the "Ring" he manufactures. I think the thread is in early-mid September time.
By the way, here is the web address for Dan Block. This will give you contact information: http://home.rconnect.com/~danlaura/
