TSMG28 Posted July 28, 2003 Report Share Posted July 28, 2003 I recently visited the shop in Nottingham, England, that I was told received the Russian Thompson shipment. Unfortunately, all of the weapons have been "deactivated" per current British law, which means our babies have been destroyed! http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/mad.gif http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/sad.gif The only usable parts left on the weapons are the sights, wood, buttstock metal, swivels and screws. Everything else has been welded together, cut and/or pinned. They are selling the deactivated weapons for around USD 800, so there is little incentive to buying one for the remaining parts considering current prices. As parts get more expensive, that may change. It breaks my heart that these weapons were not purchased by someone in a country (like New Zealand) that would not destroy these valuable pieces of history! Needless to say, I was not in a very good mood when I left the shop. It was a long journey back to the States. Roger Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
