  1. Looking for either 2-piece or solid actuator in good condition.F
  2. With permission from the site owner I am listing my 1928 Model Navy Overstamp Colt's Thompson Submachine Gun for sale. The gun was one of two purchased by the Oak Park, Illinois, Police Department in June of 1934. The gun is a beautiful example of a police Thompson and is in excellent condition with normal wear associated with a police gun that saw service for over thirty years. The gun was purchased, along the other department 1928 Navy Model, by a dealer/collector in 1970. I purchased the gun directly from the dealer's son, who inherited the gun from his father's estate, in 2004. The gun comes with two original twenty round magazines, a 1st generation Worcester L drum, and the original police hard case purchased with the gun 1934. The gun, XX magazines are drum are marked with the numeral 2, indicating it was the second of the department's two guns. The case has been professionally restored as it had suffered storage damage and was falling apart. The restorer used most of the existing parts and wood frame but the black velvet interior, and faux leather cover material had to be replaced. This is a chance to own a well kept, lightly used, original police Colt's Thompson in collector-grade condition. The only major flaws are several pivot-plate scratches from the gun being taken apart and cleaned over the years. There is very little wear to the compensator, actuator slot, and other areas of the original finish. The barrel bore is in excellent shape as well as the wood. The gun was obviously lightly used and well taken care of. The gun is registered on a Form 4. There are lots of photographs and paperwork documenting the gun's provenance that will be available to a new owner. There are fifty or so photos of the gun available for examination as well. There are too many to post here, PM for further information, photographs and asking price. Shown below are photographs of a display at the Michigan Antique Arms Show in 2017, old newspaper articles from the local Oak Park newspaper and recent photos available to prospective buyers.
