Thompson - 960814-5

Original Colt Thompson Model 1921/28 Navy Overstamp, SN# 1360 in excellent condition. One of the very few transferable “Navy” weapons with such a low serial number. At this point in the serial number range, the bulk of the 1921 Colt Thompson’s were model “A” weapons.

This weapon was shipped to the Oshkosh Washington Police Department in July of 1929. Looks to have been shipped there by the Art Burnside Sporting Goods Company N. 2208 Dakota St., Spokane Washington. This weapon has the late type fire / select and safety marking. Not typical of a weapon with such an early serial number. It also has a very rare factory horizontal forearm and offset sling swivels. To my knowledge, there are only a handful of Colt Thompson’s that left the factory with horizontal forearms. This weapon is featured in the Rimfire Production video, “The Thompson Submachine Gun”, circa 1992. It also found on page 102 of “Thompson: the American Legend”, by Tracie Hill. Circa 1996. It is a high percentage finish weapon with all original parts.
