Found Forms In My Buttstock
Posted 12 December 2004 - 02:19 AM
I was cleaning up the newly acquired Thompson earlier today and dropped open the buttstock trapdoor. To my surprise, I found the original bill of sale for my gun and the original form 3 transfer to Texas. I have redacted the names and important information (names, FFL numbers, etc) to protect the identities. Good old Ira signed it himself obviously.
I thought this was kind of neat. I know its not a Colt or a WWII Thompson, but at least I have some history on my gun. I found it interesting that the gun sat unsold from the '86 ban until the end of 1992. Also, look at the sale price! My, how times have changed!
Just thought I would share my find.

robbo, what did you pay for your West Hurley in 1986? Did it come with a Drum? I noted the West Hurley purchased by Chris sold for $1850 in 1992.
