This M1A1 Thompson has been completely reworked and reactivated by "Marana Arms" which included re-welding the receiver, with “AUTO-ORDNANCE CORPORATION/BRIDGEPORT,CONNECTICUT U.S.A.” on right side. Top of receiver marked “MARANA/ARMS/MFG/NO. 1/MDL. S”. Cutts compensator marked with Auto Ordnance Corporation and Cutts trademark within diamond. Although this gun is marked with "Marana" markings the ATF form 3 indicates both Auto Ordnance and Marana with serial number 201072. Lyman adjustable rear sight affixed to receiver with screws after which the heads were dressed off showing bare metal. One 30-round magazine marked “SW CO.” is included. The M1A1 Thompson was designed to decrease production cost and time required in order to meet high military production demands for World War II. This model Thompson is designed to take only stick magazines. Drum magazines will not fit this model. PROVENANCE: The class III weapons formerly on loan to Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. CONDITION: Overall finish and appearance is extremely fine as refinished. Buffing marks underneath refinish is evident throughout. Wood has also been refinished and there are two small plugs on left side of horizontal forend. Wood has nicks, chips and some handling marks, as well as a heavy coat of glossy finish. One rear sling swivel screw is not present. Bottom of trigger guard marked “NO. 1”, there is also a partially buffed number just forward of the handgrip. Bore is near excellent, shiny and bright. Bolt face is also near excellent. Mechanics are crisp. Magazine retains over 95% of its blued finish and there is a large “V” at front bottom. This would make an outstanding Thompson to take to the range, with a top condition bore, and gun is already refinished so no negative impact on collectors value. 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.
