They've got with Ebay trouble right away listing that 20-round mag. It's also a shame the winner can't be in the USA. Gun doesn't look too bad.

it would be legal if already in the US but no importation of MG parts, even if they are welded solid.

As it's in England it's classified as UNOBTAINABLE in the United States; Customs would sieze it, and ( B ) ATFE Agents would come to call on you in your home or place of residence.

(or are you in England ?)

Britfish: I've been curious for many years about England and associated gun laws. What can you possess and shoot "over there"? Please enlighten us here in the USA (or at least me if I'm amoung the technically unwashed on the subject).

Cheers,

Ron

Britfish, I can't say what dummy '28 Thompsons are going for in your neck of the woods, But I CAN tell you what I have in my M1A1

Thopmson M1A1 kit ................................................$350
Richardson receiver w/engraved logo etc. ...............530
New buttstock,forend,grip........................................ 62.50
Bluing on kit parts..................................................... 50
Total $992.50

As you can see it is pretty darn expensive to create a "new" dummy gun.

Ron, Its draconian over here, pretty much the only guns allowed for private ownership are shotguns. Anything else is strictly banned. We have no ranges, gun shops, but we still have gun crime. Go figure.
