Please keep us abreast of what transpires with your ordering a parts kit. I assume it was a reciever - less kit, or at least a ATF approved cut up one (3 pieces, torch cut, etc.) If it was something else... let us know what happens next!
Could you also post the picture from the auction arms listing? Thanks!

The above is the pics of auction gun.... The seller claims the gun pictured is no better than the one I received and that his camera makes the wood look more brown that it is....
Pics above are the gun I received... It absolutely is not the gun in the auction, the cut is not the same, and definitely different wood. If I pay shipping both ways he will take gun back.... He never once has offered an explanation of why I did not receive the gun pictured... Maybe he didn't like the bid or something.... It also took a long time to ship... Perhaps he had to purchase the gun with my money? My biggest mistake is I left feedback before I really looked it over as I was so exited to get it.... So like I said..... I begin the long road of hard knocks to Thompson ownership... §8-)
I picked the gun above up at the Reno show last weekend,,, I'm a little more proud of this buy.... Paid $750 for it with four mags.... The finish was kinda funky but I went for it anyhow... Turns out it was just dried on oil from days gone by when someone really caked it on. Comes right off w/WD40 and is pristine underneath. You can see the before and after in the bottom pic.

The things for sale at the website above are defintely not ATF acceptable (my opinion, of course). Good you didn't get one of those.
New wood or a little work and a dummy reciever would make that kit into a nice looking dummy gun. Go for it - good luck!
