Fabulous high condition West Hurley manufactured Model 1928 Thompson with 1 30 round “U.S. Cartridge Co” magazine. These Thompsons produced in West Hurley, New York were the last to be manufactured and sold for private ownership prior to the Firearm Owner’s Protection Act being passed by Congress in 1986. The early West Hurley produced guns utilized Savage produced parts which were remaining on hand from World War II military contracts. As these parts were used up new parts were then made to complete the guns. One can see the progression over time with a general correlation to the guns' serial numbers. This gun has all the features which make the Thompson so immediately recognizable and iconic. Bullet logo Cutts compensator at the muzzle and detachable buttstock. This model will also accept drum magazines as well as the traditional stick magazines. Electronic NFA registry indicates “AUTO ORDNANCE” as the manufacturer.
