Want to buy an original Full Auto Thompson? Here is your chance

Wish I had the 40k to grab one. :drool:


The St. Louis Police Department is upgrading their hardware by selling off some historic and collectible submachine guns. Twenty Seven iconic Thompsons bought newly 100 years ago for $125 will be sold to Midwest Distributors in Kentucky for $22K each. Being that they are properly registered NFA items, Midwest will in turn sell the rifles to private collectors via the ATF Form 3/Form 4 transfer process.

For those who would consider a semi automatic version, Grabagun has a semi automatic Thompson with a 30 round stick and 50 round drum, Comes complete with a violin case :drool:

Price actually seems reasonableat under $1500

It would certainly make a great Fathers Day gift. I wouldn't mind.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

The ATF's taking their sweet time approving NFA transfers; it'd probably be more like Valentine's Day 2019.
