Location: Little Rock, AR

We have for sale a fully transferable Savage-made Auto Ordnance M1 Thompson 45 ACP SMG manufactured in Bridgeport, CT.

S/N:  139958 (receiver only).  Trigger frame has no S/N.

Both the receiver and trigger frame were manufactured by Savage as noted by the "S" stamp near the magwell on the receiver, the FJA stamp on the receiver, the encircled GEG acceptance stamps on both the receiver and the trigger frame, and the "FULL AUTO" being on two lines on the trigger frame.  It has the beveled trap door on the stock indicating it is early production.  It has the protected rear sight which first appeared on the Savage M1s in the high 137000 range.  It has a floating firing pin and a non-riveted grip mount, also correct for the M1 models.  We believe this to be manufactured in the late 1942 to early 1943 time frame.  This Thompson is in excellent condition -- please see all the full resolution photos in the link below.  It is clean and has been well cared for.

Also included is one 50 round drum magazine and (17) 30 round stick magazines for a total of (18) magazines.  I have test fired it with both the drum magazine and several of the stick magazines and it functions 100% with both.  All but a couple of the stick magazines are Seymour.

The gun has NOT been modified in any way to accept the drum mag.  The drum mag was modified to work with the gun.

Is just the drum modified to work with an M1 (picture 17) or is the receiver modified in any way?  I assume the former but want to be sure the receiver has not been altered.  Thanks

Hi Robert.  The receiver is not modified in any way to accommodate the drum.  It appears to me that the drum was modified to function on the M1.  I've not seen another one like it in my research so I'm not sure who/what company made the mods and if it's a commercially available product.  I have test fired it with this gun and it works as it should.

Thanks Brennan.  Nice pictures, and a nice looking gun.  I've seen/heard of a few other drums modified to fit a M1 or M1A1; it looks like someone did a good job with it if it runs well as you indicate.

GREAT GUN AND A GREAT FIND! when seeking THOMPSON VARIATIONS, its NOT ALWAYS the MONEY.  ALMOST ALL OF THESE WERE CONVERTED TO THE M1A1 and hand stamped A1. this was my hardest to pin down of them ALL. and ORIGINAL FINISH ON TOP OF IT ALL. (sigh)
