Wow! Nice display. What's the history?

As far as posting pics, looks like you have it down. Use the IMG button and enter the web address. Just make sure of the syntax and that it is all correct.

Only two pictures would come up at a time. Is there any trick to it? The showcase came out of my grandfather's country store. One of the thompson's is a 21ac that was in the jersey city, nj police dept. Another is a 28 overstamp, and the other is a savage 28a1 that was in one of the movie gun rentals.

They're ok. (and I say that only to conceal my jealousy!)

Nice pics! Can you tell us more on the drums?

The two drums on the stands are both colt numbered drums. One is a c and the other a L. The drum on the 28a1 is a bridgport

Steve,
Is it difficult to find the electrical outlet in that TSMG room? Also, is it possible to post the serial numbers of the Colt 21 and 28N?

Thanks for sharing, Steve! biggrin.gif smile.gif Everything in that display seems to be in decent shape. What condition would you rate the guns and drums? Regards, Walter

All the drums are in very good to excellent condition. I had the 28a1 reparked and put new wood on it, so it looks new. The 21 is somewhere between 85 to 90 percent and the 28 is 90 to 95. The two colts are all original
