|Is a drum an extra?|

|Hell offer the guy $12k and see where he goes from there|
Emmagee, be VERY careful. Offering less than 60% of the asking price will net you the following:
1. Buyer does not have the money to really buy the gun
2. Buyer has NO concept of the current market (hint, hint Mike).
3. Buyer is looking to steal the gun hoping that the seller is desperate.
4. Buyer is a dealer fishing for a deal and a quick buck.
In other words, the seller won't take you seriously. Why should he? After all he probably has had plenty of emails offering him more. More than likely you will get a quick "No thanks..." I have know many a Thompson buyer that is at his wits end looking for a good Thompson and will pay more than he really wants too just to lock in the gun and seal the deal. I still think I got robbed paying 10K for mine. I started looking when the prices were around 8K, but when decision time came around prices had changed and I had to pay the piper. Glad I did. You will be too.
Good uncut WW2 Savage guns are bringing $16K and better. 21K seems high, but so did 10K in early 2002.
Good luck in your endeavors...

you rarely see thompsons being mentioned as rewats. i've seen only a handful for sale that mention they are rewats. i think there a lot of people out there that are lying about the original status of their thompson. these days if you buy a dewat thats on a form 5, you can transfer it on a form 4. after that, there is no paper trail of it ever having been a dewat, unless someone does a FOIA, and not a lot of people do those. i think there are a lot or rewats out there and people don't know it.
