Not to spoil Mike's great snipe attempt... here is a link to the item. I have some questions about it.

http://cgi.ebay.com/.....AMEWA:IT&rd=1

I was thinking about bidding - about $200 ago. This is a real one according to Dave Alberts literature guide. Dave or Michael usually bid here on these items as well.... so if you (Dalbert or Sig) are not bidding - give us a real "value" of what this may be worth???

There's one on GunBroker for $125.00, but it's a 1936, not a 1928 like on eBay.

Just my two cents ....

I emailed the guy on GB about the fake. He had no clue...yeah right. So I told him was worth about $25-$35. Told him to watch out for the trigger off the line thing.

I would think that the one on Gun Broker should sell for around $5.00, $6 if they include shipping.

Not Deaf,

You need to contact Dave Albert or Micheal Siglieto(spelled worng..."Dalbert" & "Sig" here on this board) or search on old posts for their book on Thompson Literature. It is certianly worth the price, if they have any left, so you can determine which manuals are real and which are not.

Big Daddy,

As I told you, I am done bidding on that one.... unless I get a reply from him that it has a Richardson reciever! Haven't heard, so it is all yours! I watching it... dry.gif

I like to collect old books and catalogues too, but in my opinion, some people have more money than brains...

(I coulda got that M1 Garand I'm saving up for with that money!)
