Thompson - 260614-1

This is a super nice early 1921A Colt Thompson still retaining a very high percentage of its original finish. Alignment mark on the barrel is perfect, all internal components are original and overall finish is excellent+ with the exception of the two spots on the right and left hand of the sides on the receiver. This damaged was probably caused by storing the weapon in a rack by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Department. I have detailed it as much as possible in the attached jpeg's. The stock and grips are beautiful and all original. Included in the package is an original hard case, 4 patent dated box magazines, and an original "L" (50 round) drum. Note that only one hard case was manufactured for every 15 weapons produced and almost all have been destroyed over time. A substantial amount of the price of the weapon package is driven by the hard case, L drum and original magazines.

The weapon has a very interesting history. It was originally purchased by two gold miners in Alaska to protect their gold claim. At some point they gave up mining and moved to Clearwater, Florida. They later donated it to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Department.
