There are also four 30 round magazines included with this lot. The M1 Thompson with its side cocking bolt and Cutts compensator was the first step in making an easier to produce Thompson for military use as opposed to the more costly and time consuming earlier Thompson models. The M1 Thompson saw widespread use during World War II. Overall appearance and finish is simply outstanding. Extremely fine gray Parkerized finish with some of the machining marks visible under the finish. Markings are absolutely crisp and clean, indicating this is original finish. Wood is also very fine with a couple of small dings and a small chip at the right side base of the handgrip. Mechanics are crisp; bore is very fine, shiny and bright. Magazines in very fine condition, all are marked "U S Cartridge" with some slight flakes of corrosion from storage.
