Savage M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun

We have the following transferable Savage M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun, serial number 797521 available for sale.  This Thompson was manufactured by the Savage Arms in Utica, NY, under contract for the Auto-Ordnance Corporation in Bridgeport, CT.  It was likely manufactured sometime in 1944, towards the end of all WWII Thompson production.

This Thompson has been refinished, probably through an arsenal rebuild program, though it does not feature specific arsenal rebuild location stampings.  It does have a prick-punch mark on the top of the receiver nose indicating the barrel was replaced.  It has the later style, protected, triangular ear rear sight, and a fixed firing pin M1A1 bolt.  Its buttstock has a reinforcing crossbolt, characteristic of the period of manufacture.  The left side of the receiver has a faintly stamped Ordnance wheel marking, as well as an "FJA" inspector stamp, indicating it was inspected under the supervision of Army Inspector of Ordnance Frank J. Atwood of the Rochester Ordnance District during WWII.  Such an inspector stamp is the easiest way to quickly identify a Savage M1 or M1A1, since they were not marked with “S” prefixes like the earlier M1928A1 models, and are extremely similar to the M1’s manufactured by Auto-Ordnance in Bridgeport, CT.  It also features the Auto-Ordnance acceptance stamp of "GEG" for George E. Goll.  The "GEG" stamp appears twice; once on the receiver nose, and once above the magazine well.  George E. Goll was the longest serving employee of Auto-Ordnance, beginning as General Thompson's chauffeur, and he ended up becoming the President of the Auto-Ordnance Division of Maguire Industries during WWII.  The weapon comes with a 30-round magazine.  This is a very nice M1A1 Thompson that any collector would be proud to own and shoot.

The punch mark on the receiver does not mean the barrel has been replaced. In fact, because of the direction of the P proof mark and the punch mark on the P, I would bet that it is an original barrel. It does look like the rear sight was removed and reattached. The rivets do not look like Savage factory rivets in that they are not flat enough (unless the picture just doesn't provide an accurate enough image of them. Nice looking gun. I have one in similar condition in the 774K range.
