No arty, my question to you is sell me two transferable Thompson 28's , blued with vertical stocks, ribbed barrels and cutts compensator's for what I have in 2 transferable Thompson's and 3 Title 1 Guns for the same amount. It's simple, and as i said Put Up Or shut up. Please enlighten a novice like me how I could get more bang for my buck????

You always dodge the question. How convenient

i must admit after reading all of this.......it's almost better then the spare part's kit storie's...and we have ,young,old,informed,not informed chiming in on all of it...

and sorry to say nobody has bought that m1a1 wes-hurley tommy...maybe i can shoot the heck out of it,put a few mark's on it,not clean it and ask.....$13,000.00 shipped..funny thing the last three that are advertised now are all at $15,000.00............way above this one..that just go's to show you talk is cheap,and alot of people do that alway's... when it's time to cut that big check they get the cold sweat's and itchy hand's..

it will sell.......they alway's do...i have been converted!! and have seen the light..

maybe i should not throw in any spare part's and alot of mag's...and be like everybody else. one mag"and no soup for you" wink!! have fun guy's please no bad remark's....

people who own any kind of thompson are supposed to be a "step above"

take care,ron

p.s. i think a mp-40 owner once told me that, or maybe it was a fg-42

I find it interesting that the price of WH seems to be out pacing the price of WWII guns. Just saw a M1 selling for 16.5k. Hummm seems the public and the consumer has spoken about these "replicas". Their prices are rising faster then the WWII guns....soon to be catching the colts. Several years ago there was a 25-33% difference between a WWII gun and a WH. That gap seems to have closed quite a bit. Considering my rate of return for owning a WH was 28.6% a year for 8 years, I did better with it then had I purchased a WWII gun.

Not only that, but side cocking guns are for pussys who can't crank it from the top.

I have nothing against West Hurley's and that was not the intent of my original post. I am new to Thompson’s, within the last year and wound up with two. My reason for selling the West Hurley was nothing more than needing the cash for a DLO/Andrewski Sterling MK4 and to take some cash off the table. I shoot my C&R Savage 28 Thompson and love every minute of it. I personally think the Hurley guns will continue to climb in value and will regret not keeping both. Their are few people that can spend 20K for a toy / hobby and even less that can spend 40K for toy/hobby. To me that is where the Hurley's have the advantage, for now. Any machinrgun owner should be proud of there collection / investment, they are just like land and there will be no more. We are also a very unique, privileged and small class of people. cool.gif
