Fine refinished Auto Ordinance Bridgeport M1 Thompson with small “S” proof on bottom of matching lower receiver indicating Savage manufacture. Includes one 30 round Seymore magazine and original Kerr sling. Gun has typical right and left receiver markings with fixed peep sight, smooth unfinned barrel, and non-detachable buttstock. The M1 model Thompson machine gun was produced for only a short time before the less costly and less time consuming transition to the M1A1 with a fixed firing pin bolt. “GEC” and “FJA” inspector proofs still visible on left side of receiver with typical manufacturer’s address markings. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent grey green arsenal refinish over scattered light pitting on top if receiver, with a couple of small spots of somewhat more noticeable pitting right at the ejector port. Lettering is crisp and clear. Wood is in exceptionally fine condition and no doubt were arsenal replacements. This gun looks just phenomenal. Mechanics are crisp. Bore near excellent, shiny and bright, probably also a vintage arsenal replacement. Bolt face near excellent. This is just a tremendous opportunity for the dedicated Thompson collector. A scarce model to find, especially in this condition! THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4 AS CURIO AND RELIC ELIGIBLE. JWK 2020-05-043
