The asking prices for all Thompson’s are rapidly increasing – none more than for the Colt Thompson. Just out of curiosity, I thought it might be interesting to see how many board members could actually buy a Colt Thompson at today’s prices. That would give us all an idea of how many buyers are really available for these new and constantly rising machine gun prices. The question is simple:

If presented with a one time opportunity to purchase a three digit Colt Thompson with a serial numbered Colt Drum, both in excellent original condition (96% plus conservatively graded on anyone’s scale) for $25,000 cash upfront (including shipping) from a honest dealer with an excellent reputation, could you raise the cash in 24 hours?

This poll has nothing to do with whether or not you would want to spend the money. We all know John, Jr. would not buy a Colt Thompson. This question only deals with whether or not you are able to really afford this great deal. Obviously, everything is anonymous and in that vein, no responses are allowed. This should be interesting…
