Are you in the market for Thompson submachine gun manufactured by Colt’s Patent Fire Arms Manufacturing Company in 1921 and 1922? Do you have the expertise to properly evaluate what has become a very expensive collector firearm? Would you like to have some inexpensive help inspecting that Colt’s? Finally, a book that is geared especially toward those who want to learn about the Colt’s Thompson gun from a buyer perspective:

An Amateur’s Guide for the Colt’s Thompson Submachine Gun

(Or How to be an Informed Buyer in a Very Expensive Market)

This new reference book by Tom Davis, Jr.  is the perfect guide for those new to the very expensive world of the Colt's Thompson guns. It can easily save a novice collector thousands of dollars when looking to purchase that perfect Colt's Thompson submachine gun. The book covers:

(1) What to look for and avoid when shopping for a Colt's.

(2) Each Auto-Ordnance model explained in pictures with detailed information.

(3) How to identify an original Colt's era actuator, including the three original NAVY actuator variations.

(4) The St. Louis Police Department Colt's story, including the gangster guns and Models of 1927.

(5) How to safely shoot an original Colt's Thompson without devaluing it.

(6) How to clean and properly refinish the Colt's wood.

(7) How to identify an original Spare Part Kit Container.

(8) And much more information that will greatly aid the novice and educate many current owners about General Thompson's trench broom.

The book is filled with numerous color photographs and expansive captions that will teach the Thompson enthusiasts the many important features of a Colt's Thompson. While geared toward the beginner or new enthusiast, current Colt's owners and advanced collectors will find a lot of valuable and heretofore unknown and unpublished information.

In addition, dealers that do not specialize in the Thompson guns will be better able to accurately describe Colt’s for sale. And correctly evaluate Thompson guns offered for trade or direct sale. 

This is a must book for the Thompson enthusiast's library!

I received a new copy of this book from Tom last week and am fascinated with the intimate detail Tom put into this publication.  

$44 is a minuscule but worthwhile investment for those considering buying OR selling a Colt's Thompson.

Just got my copy yesterday, and all I can is WOW!  Lots of details, lots of pics showing minute differences.  Yeah, well worth the cost.  Should make for a great reference book on one's shelf.

Highly recommend this book! Both my Father and I each purchased a copy to learn more about what to look for in purchasing a Colt TSMG, since it has always been his dream gun. 

Armed with all this knowledge, he was able to confidently purchase a Colt 1928 Navy at Ohio Colt Collectors. 

Even if you're not in the market for one, fantastic book to read and learn.
