The first is a 50rd New York "L" drum and the second is a West Hurley 39rd drum. There are 2 small oil cans included, 1 has a black finish the other is unpainted and both have the small wire inside the cap to keep the oil cone clear of becoming plugged by debri and both are empty and clean of dried oil. The unpainted can has a small dent near the base.

This is a very nice piece of history. I will post photo's as soon as possible.

Yeah, it's the same TSMG. I have never seen an ad for a Colt TSMG that had to stipulate that it was used. The price would be more in keeping with what the market is if the accessories, i.e. drums, were at least Colt 1, 2, or 3 versions. Apparently there was a Lend Lease Colt TSMG, with a combination of Savage/AO parts, at the SAR show for..........$45K!!!!

That is outrageous!!!!

After all the gun never left the country anyway and with junky old useless Savage/AO parts it couldn't be worth a cent over $25,000.00

BOY! Things have gone crazy!

(did you not go to the SAR this year Arthur?)
