Savage M1A1 and Auto Ordnance M1928A1

The M1928A1 you have seen before but the M1A1 is a recent find. Picked it up in January

The finish on the M1A1 is a bit worn but it works 100%, barrel looks almost new.

Yep, they are 100% working.

Paid appr. $1000 for the M1928A1 and $600 for the M1A1.

They both have non-matching lower/upper but I've been told that is legio on WW2 Thompsons.

Oh come on Chris, that's just a little more then you paid for yours! Remember when a Thompson was only $650 here in the US of A? Then the dealer greed took over and all hell broke lose.

Nice pair, Anders.

The '28 looks like a Brit one as it has the sling swivel relocated to the top of the butt with a SMLE sling. Does it have British proof marks ?

Only military ranges are approved for FA.

Semi is OK on all ranges.
