What would be the current value of a display Thompson (M1A1) with an engraved 80% receiver by Doug Richardson? (Note: Markings and parts look VG in condition but have been refinished).

TIA, RichardS.

Its no secret....

Right now the value is $1000!

The same seller sold a 1928 kit with Richardson rec - mint as this one is too... and it was bought for $2000.

So - I guess the value to you is whatever you want to pay!

Wow, very nice. Looks like he cuts out the feed ramp to make it atf compliant, unlike the ones from Phil Ord, am I right?
