Colt 1921 100% original Thompson

Just acquired this 1921 Colt Thompson as I’m not an expert on Thompsons, I took it to by good friend Don Quinnell owner of Don’s Gun Shop for inspection and a serious cleaning, the gun had a lot of cosmoline on it and needed a romantic candlelight bubble bath in Don’s ultrasonic.

After cleaning it Don rated the gun at 92% - 92% so to be conservative let me drop it to 90% original finish left on the gun. The wood looks extremely nice; there are some minor nicks from storage on the butt stock.

The lower and upper have matching serial numbers # 31xx

Gun comes with the correct “L” drum # 21xx

There was an original oilier in the butt stock

I have a copy of the original transfer to an individual in 1934.

I’m in no hurry to sell it, understand the gun is worth $35,000 or so

I’m open to reasonable offers and trades.

Tomorrow I will have 14 pictures available upon request.

This gun may be inspected by appointment in Miami, Florida.

Gun is in my inventory in Miami
