Sorry Joe but that has become an oxymoron. If your selling, Full Auto 45 has a standing offer of 10k.
If your buying and lucky you might find a West Hurley Thompson 'replica' for a minimum of 12k. WW2 models starting at 15K. I'm sure others will be happy to opine, or bloviate.
Welcome to the board.

Hey...my gun resembles that remark!

I'm also curious as to myriad of different models. Is there a good website that gives a breakdown with pics on them?

Welcome to the Board!
You could probably buy a bar of the proper steel from Doug Richardson to mill a semi receiver, a barrel from where ever (a number of sources - see FAQ for Parts), and the semi internal parts from Kahr, but I rather strongly doubt that it would be a cost effective means of obtaining a SBR semi-auto Thompson. Note on the Phil Ord thread of the scarcity of Phil Ord and Pearl Thompsons. It was just not cost effective to make them.
It would appear the lowest cost way to have a SBR semi-auto Thompson is to shop around for a good deal (less than $600???) for a nice used WH or Kahr semi-, register with the ATF for a SBR, get the 10.5" barrel, and perform the swap.
Best of luck with your project.
