Way off - a $800. used gun - a $1,000 C drum ( for now if no one comes out with a C drum) a $200. L drum and a case. Case must be worth a lot!

However, remember you are buying American not a gun made by the Monnies in their spare time when that are not going door to door selling their pictures of Elvis on velvet.

So now a replica made in the 1980's is of "vintage" heritage? This seller should contact the guy who wants $8K for that reject chrome fender Numrich special. They could swap fascinating stories about Big Foot, Nessie, Abominable Snowman, Jersey Devil, and Gremlins when they are not counting faeries on the tip of a pin.

This dope has been trying to hock this gun for months. Thankfully, it never sells.

Funny part is that he keeps jacking up the BIN price - 7K, then 8K now 9999.

I would say no more than 2500 for the gun, drums and case.

EDIT: Naahh.. 2000 flat because this guy is a dork.

West Hurley gun = $800
WH "C" drum = $1000
WH "L" drum = $250
2-30 round mags = $30
1 pelican 1750 case = $200
1 Kahr FBI case = $139
1 Thompson patch =$5
1 Thompson silver ingot =$15
___________________________
total $2439

This would not include $350 for Merle fixing the "C" drum, and could be off by a hundred either way on case prices, gun varying price and such.
