Thompson - 210612-1

This 1921AC Colt Thompson was shipped to the Kruse & Bahlmann Hardware Company in Cincinnati, Ohio in November 23, 1925. It seems to have disappeared between then and when it was seized in Tarrant County Texas in 1960. The weapon finish is in the very high percentage range, almost mint, however it has been re-barreled somewhere down the line. Fortunately, it was re-barreled with a factory Colt Thompson barrel. Still the fact that it has been re-barreled distracts somewhat from its value and that is reflected in the price. A FOIA request will probably fill in a lot of the blanks pertaining to the history of this weapon.
