Anyway I have 2 Thompsons, both 1928A1's and both Savages. Both have Lyman battle sights, one has a smooth barrel(522### serial range), one finned(450### serial range) both have the Cutts Compensator. What type of finish should these guns have ? both are blued but I have seen many '28's with a parkerized finish?
I'll try to upload a few pick when I have worked out how to.
Many thanks in advance for any help.

It is unusual to be new to Thompsons and have two Savage guns; did you inherit them (everyone’s dream)?
The guns were originally blued from the factory, Parkerized at rebuild. It will be interesting to see them; sounds like a very nice pair indeed.

After reading some other other threads on mismatched receivers and trigger groups, I found that the earlier one I have has an AO trigger group that has been re-numbered, the different shade to the finish between the two parts gives that away too.
I have some pictures of the guns but need somewhere to host them, I can email them to anyone that is interested.

When you say you "took" them as payment, you do of course mean they were transferred to you, right?
