Remember two or three weeks back when 3 "As New" (99%) '1927A5's showed-up on Sturm' ($1,250ea) and I mentioned in a thread about them that I was the 4th person to E-Mail and call about them?
I was told that the first person who responded had asked to buy all three and that they'd (The sellers) be in contact with me should the sale fall through.
Well, I just got this from them today lol:
WTS: THOMPSON 1927 A5 PISTOL/CARBINE
NINETY NINE PERCENT
45 ACP. AUTO ORDNANCE CORP
WEST HURLY N.Y.
ONE STICK MAG AND ONE DRUM
SEMI AUTO,STEEL BOLT.
GUN IS LIKE NEW CONDITION
SALE PRICE $2200.00
I KNEW it was too good to be true!lol
Looks like someone was a little overwhelmed by the response and took another look at what they were selling. I don't honestly know what these things are worth but I WAS willing to go $1,250 for one. $2,200...? hmmmmm.....

it's never too early to pay only too late or something like that...
heck offer him $2,750.00 since you know in your heart it will be worth more next year...so why pay so little for it??
see if he has five to sell.i can get you a check or better yet "thompson cash" in a few day's...i have a 2% c.d.coming due...and with all this car-a-zy pricing.i want to get in on the ground floor.. and make out like a fat cat next year!!wink!!
have fun enjoy the storm.

however they would probably only sell a few hundred game's..because the real world would or could not figure out the madness..
however printing "Thompson Cash" has me going. i can just see the expression on the face's already at gun show's...somebody shout's out i want $38,000.00 for this thompson boy's or $9,000.00 for this part's kit. and you walk over with the leather sachel. and pull out a wadd.and throw it on the table and shout >sold baby!!! it's all mine....
and the other gun hawker's looker's and not so do'er's gaze into the aisle's not realizing they have seen history being made... phoney moolah for inflated phoney pricing....okay maybe only a little inflated! wink! ha-ha!
then the talk travel's throught the internet like wildfire. everybody starts using "Thompson Cash" to pay for all gun deal's...then the gov.crackdown...they want a piece of it.
oh wait don't they get a piece already..somebody buy's a thompson for $5,000..00 then sell's for $30,000.00........and report's his new found wealth of $25,000.00..............to his wife,girlfriend or somebody??um!
i'm sure somebody here will print up the first $1,000.00 bill. and not with grover cleveland on it.
maybe j. curtis earl on the first,it would be a fitting tribute.
i can go on the $100.00 c-note's and replace franklin.
with a big scale 1921a on the back..i will start today...wink! take care,ron
p.s this has been the best idea since the price raise on 1921's

into a nice packet....on the internet for say..$49.50 shipped.. another pet rock.??i will have to clear it with helmer and mark tho..as they will want to make a few buck's..
maybe 2006 will be my year............... take care,ron
p.s. and i had the idea along with bill on a calendar, it was called> " dead gangster's in car's and bar's" kinda- r -rated...i still have alot of the pic's and drawing's for it.. it was listed in my old paper flyer catalog in 1991.
see even ole fart's have a idea or two that sometime's doe's not fly!! wink!!good luck mike, chick's will probably sell better then history..
