| Despite the sellers game playing, If the going rate for Colt SN# 1616 is 23.5k, how is this refinished, not all original, overstamp worth a premium over 1616? As good as it does look. |
If folks want to combat Thompson greed and keep prices where we can afford them, lets stop raising the valuation everytime another gun comes up.

|I have watched two COLT Bridgeport models sell for $24K/$25K each so feel that a real Navy model must be valued higher.|

|One must remember that not that many years ago few cared which wood part went on which gun and it was common to swap parts out. The police department history on this gun (perhaps one of it’s other owners) may explain why it was never refitted with a technically correct set of wood to complete the “collector” value of the gun. The non-original wood did not bother any of the experts that I showed the gun to in the past. They too have seen plenty of great examples with non-original wood stocks.|
