When The Aw Ban Sunsets Next Year...

Secondly, once the ban sunsets someone could tool up and make thompson L and C drums all day long...how much would one of those cost? (assume the same as a current production X drum?)...and how much is that?
Thirdly, if that did happen and some enterprising individual made drums for the M1...would that close the price difference gap between M1s and 1928's?
Thanks in advance!!

"Hope for the best, but expect the worst."
I hope it goes away, but it is doubtful that it will (IMHO.)
If it does, drum prices will hit the floor. The only execption would be the high dollar Colts.

As you, I hope the ban sunsets, but I sincerely worry whenever an idiot, nut takes pot shots at cars.

It's amazing at how you think, I as well have pondered the thought of picking up yet another Kahr 1927A1 and just letting it as is. Considering that my 1st has had several things modified to not only make it work but to I guess one might say Hybridize it.
It's value might just be less someday that an out of box Kahr.
Man, I just felt a shiver go up my spine!!

I have no idea why I spent to much time writing this down, other than to make the point that the Pacer, in all acounts, appeared to be very valuable and desirable, albeit to such a small percentage of the population (kind of like certain gun owners). The story is all true though...

I have a story about my 1967 Rambler Rouge with 16,000 actual miles,3 on the tree,straight six,no power anything, but there's not that much room on here.

While i do believe (and agree) that the originals will retain most of their value as collectables i do feel that the West Hurleys would drop drastically to the price of a "used" drum.
Just like if the 1986 FOPA were repealled, i HOPE that the original wartime thompsons and vet bringbacks from korea and vietnam would retain value along with specialties like Colts and Stoners...and others
So hopefully next year we will all be dumping our $200 'C drums' at the range...and i believe a drum can be modified to work on an M1 without modifying the receiver

One can only lead a horse to water.
I think that heirloom wound up on "That 70's Show".
