1) An 85% Colt for $30,000.
2) Two 95-98 % West Hurleys for $15,000 and $15,500 respectively.
3) A Colt 1921 allegedly from the Indiana PA-PD with the fore grip hurriedly attached in such a way that it sat approximately 3/8" to the rear and below the grip mount.
4) At a well known parts purveyor's tables a beat up Lyman
TSMG sight for $275 (no sight tension spring- loose as a goose) and a used West Hurley imitation Lyman TSMG rear sight identified as a Lyman for $175.
5) TSMG finned and smooth barreled parts sets that looked like overpriced junk thrown into a corrugated box. If you buy a parts set the wood is a throw away unless you want to attempt restoration. I can only imagine the condition of the metal underneath the wood. The photo of the parts set that appears on this purveyor's website is not the condition of what I handled at this show. Wood is rough, dirty, nicked up and saturated with oil. Underside of Cutts are pitted badly. Not worth $725-$825 to me. I suppose if you want to make a Tommy non-gun the quality is acceptable. If you want a restoration of a Westy or WWII, buy the lower frame from this source and use a Richardson barrel, and buy wood from the guy listed in FAQ.
6) Sales people poorly informed on the history and source of the parts sets that they are selling.
