Description:

Manufactured c. 1980-1981, this is a variant of the Thompson 1928A1 Submachine Gun scaled down and adapted to run on the 22 Long Rifle cartridge. The core operating mechanism is open bolt blowback, just like the classic model, though many major components are made with aluminum instead of steel to keep the weight down. In handling and appearance it is a faithful re-imagining, with a fixed blade front sight on the Cutts-style compensator, fluted barrel, and a peep rear sight concealed by the protective wings. Markings are traditional in layout, with appropriate changes for model and caliber. Fitted with grooved pistol grips and a quick detach stock. A magazine well adapter block fits into the drum rails, with one compatible stick magazine provided. Provenance: The Al Walker Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 97% plus original black anodized finish, showing some light edge wear and handling marks overall. The wood is also excellent. Mechanically excellent. NOTE: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), fully transferable Class 3, which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
