Hello all,

I recently bought an AO Thompson '28AC. This gun has 2 owners and came out of AO in 1944 as the FOIA shows and went to PD where it stayed until the early 80s. The seller bought it from Terry Williams. He does not know the origin of the case, but it is made out of mahogony and has brass hardware.

Any one seen this case before? Just currious.

Thanks.

Greg Fox of Florida makes one that looks just like that. He is a board member here. Nice case by the way. Now you need some wood to go match the case.

Yes and he will be at Knob Creek in a couple weeks. If your looking for a case, either the FBI or Police or Indiana style case, he makes them. Prices are $589(?) or there abouts. Lots cheaper then the $2500 for a original. And the quality is the best. I highly recommend his stuff. I think if you do a search for Greg Fox or Thompson cases, you will find some pictures.
