Many thanks to everyone on the board. I feel I made an informed purchase because of the information gleaned here.
I still want a WWII gun, but I made a deal on a West Hurley 28 (5xxA) 1977 manufacture. Now I will be able to use the drums and stick mags I have collected in the last year.
The gun has been stored for years and fired little, but works fine. The dealer selling it for the registered owner sold it new.
I plan on enjoying this and the next one with my 2 sons. With my savings account paying a whopping 1 1/2%, I think my money will do better in the TSMG investment portfolio. (This was way cheaper than buying a Harley-and safer too!!)

Thanks again everyone,
Uncle Dudley

Have fun; Your gun's past sounds like mine. Made in 1977, shot a little, parkerized by the owner, then in the safe from 1981 till 2003, in Tulsa Oklahoma. Now it is next to Ft.Knox, Ky............jw

I have a new "grandnephew" and a new Thompson as of 4-11-2005. It won't be long til he says: "Let's go to Uncle Dudley's and shoot the machine gun."
