As the particulars of the gun you are considering and the gun docmolar recently purchased are not stated, I will note that to some, the earlier Savage 28A1's with finned barrel, knurled actuator knob, and ladder sight are worth more.
Best of luck with what ever you decide.

I always wanted a Colt but waited too long..........................

Keep in mind with how fast the prices are increasing, these replies are no longer valid as the pirce has increased again.
I have always stated that 95% of the prices are too high, but sure enough they keep going up.
So, my stance is now...... If you want it and have the cash and it is $3-$4K more than what you think it should be then jump on it and buy it. By this same time next year, you will be happy you did.

Looks real nice. Congrats.
Is this your first Thompson? First NFA?

| Thanks to the advice received on this site I bit the bullet and bought it. A British lend lease in 90-95% condition, matching numbers, GEG and RLB marked, serial number S270XXX, marked "U.S. MODEL OF 1928" and "Auto Ordnance, Bridgeport", with correct crown markings on top of bolt and receiver (near the top of the barrel next to two witness marks which appear to have been made bya punch), also proof marked on the top of the finned barrel when it left British military service. Compensator has bullet logo on left side. Drum is Bridgeport. I made a 220 mile trip to inspect the item before buying and it appears to be all original.|
and and? the price was? inquiring minds want to know.....

The seller was a man of integrity that has owned the gun for over 20 years. I am not remotely worried about not receiving what I looked at personally. Besides, I took many digital photos.
I'm very pleased with this purchase. I really had my sights set on a 1921 like a friend of mine owns, however, the price has gone beyond my reach. This is a great compromise.

If the AG of the State of Michigan manages to convince ATF that his opinion letter on mgs says what he meant it to say then folks in MI will not be constrained to only buying C&R guns and the WH's should appreciate a little faster from increased demand which in turn may well push the C&R's up even higher. You will be fine.

There's nothing quite like an ol' Thompson.
