Gosh, and all I got was a original Thompson .45 Cal to .22 Cal Conversion Unit to convert your .45 cal Thompson to .22 cal by Auto Ordnance Corp, West Hurley, Ny in the box with 2 extra mags and a drum loader. Murray you stinker, you didn't tell me about those drums! That book was a steal, you should have taken the original case it was in also.

Thanks Murray, for clearing that up. biggrin.gif I knew I was probably off on some of the details, as your email did not reach me intact. blink.gif ohmy.gif smile.gif That is still a pretty hefty loss ($405,000), even if your Tommys were not the ones buried at sea. blink.gif ohmy.gif unsure.gif Regards, Walter

This year's SAR show was very well done and a lot of fun to attend. It was great to see old friends ( Murray Willis, Gordon Herigstad, Doug Richardson & Merle Bitikofer ) again and meet new folks as well ( Don Hall & Mike Hensley ! ) It was also good to hear that Gordon Herigstad has found a company that is going to make the 1921 parts kit metal box! It may appear a little pricey ( $295.00 ) for somefolks, but a lot of things we Thompson people do seem a bit odd to the rest of the world.
Best Regards

The parts tin does seem a little expensive but! and there is a huge but, I know that the tooling cost for the tin is very large, (you could buy a nice Colt for the same amount) and the number sold will not be that many.
It will be the only way I will ever be able to purchase such an item, even if it is a reproduction. I have seen the first pressings and in true Gordon style, he will accept nothing short of perfect.
There was a WW2 parts tin in the show which was priced at $1100.00
