This Thompson retains most of its original bluing and is not a re-weld or parts kit gun. The rear sling mount was moved the top of the stock and the handguard one was moved the left side (used by a police department since the 50’s).The metal does have some patina, scratches and dings present. The wood is solid, but has dents and finish ware. This gun is in excellent mechanical condition and functions flawlessly with 230gr FMJ (American Eagle used). 4 full magazines were fired from each magazine (Yes it was a blast). Email me for video if you would like to see it in operation.
Manufactured by Auto-Ordnance on contract from the United States Government, the Thompson 1928 is one of the signature American weapons of World War II, being deployed in every theater of the war, both in American hands and among numerous Allied units via equipment sharing and Lend-Lease supplies. The 1928 is still very close in overall fit and features to the original Roaring 20s/Great Depression "Chicago Typewriter" of gang warfare fame, retaining a number of options that would be eliminated from later production to lower cost and speed production. A blade front sight is installed on the Cutts compensator, with a Lyman folding ladder rear sight on the receiver. Commercial standard markings are present on the top and sides of the receiver, with the "MODEL OF 1928" marking on the left side of the receiver along with "GEG". The trigger group/frame is marked 56404 with NO. S-32010 marked out indicating that this was an arsenal replacement, with "FULL AUTO"/"SINGLE" selector lever and "FIRE"/"SAFE" safety lever, a grooved pistol grip, and a quick detach buttstock with trapdoor buttplate. Three magazines (2x20 and 1x30) is included. The 30-round and one 20-round magazine are marked “THE SEYMOUR PRODUCTS CO” and THE OTHER 20-round is marked “AUTO ORDNANCE CORP”. The 30 round magazine has a large dent in the front but still feeds 30 rounds flawlessly.
