I say it's overpriced at the moment. However, one day they will bring those prices and more. Just my .02

Of COURSE it is! It is a Colt, and well documented. You should torch cut your other Thompson's, make the sign of the cross, and buy it straight off....

I think this guy is trying to make $10k off his new purchase. Obviously to pay for his bad crack habit. This gun , New Orleans PD with same goodies, sold on that board about a month or 6 weeks ago! it was only $20k then. You know my West Hurley shoots just as good if not better than this gun will shoot. And I'm not afraid to shoot the shit out of mine. Only ran about 1000 rounds today out of it and my M1.

Mike,

What's really scary is he might get that money!

I'll watch it for a curiousity.

By the way... I am still WTB a 1928 (C&R). And NOT for $30K!

If West Hurley's are actually getting $10K on a regular basis, then Colt 21/28's should be selling for $30K without accessories. By next summer that may be the case anyway.

This is supposed to be a happy occasion. Let's not bicker and argue about 'oo killed 'oo.

I like 1920's vintage Colts personally, but that's just me smile.gif
