Tommy Guns

Any of you all own one or have any experience with em?I like to get one someday if they came down on price.I hear the drum mag can be troublesome.I don,t think I could own one w/out the drum mag,they are too cool.Plus they come with a violin case.I held one in GM this weekend.I didn,texpect them to be so heavy.

They will never come down in price. If you buy one consider it an investment because it will go up in price.

If you like a drum buy a drum. A pain to reload but fun to shoot.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Re: Tommy Guns

goog ole boy

I thought you were talking about a full auto Thompson.

There are still legal full auto Thompsons around. I'd hate to guess at the price but the last one I saw was $20,000 and that was a few years ago.

How much did they want for the semiauto you saw at Gander Mt?

Re: Tommy Guns

the one thing i don't like about the new semi-auto thompsons is the barrel length. the ones i saw are way too long for that type of gun.

a vintage, full auto thompson will go in the 10's of thousands and require a class III.

Re: Tommy Guns

The Bonnie and Clyde one went for 40k I think.If you can afford one make sure you can afford a good machinist/gunsmith too.I'd bet most are worn bad and in need of new unavailable parts.The license to own a full auto will set you back a few hundred a year.I have seen stupid people post on youtube with full auto conversions.When I say stupid you can see thier face.Converting to full auto isn't legal without the license either.It basically means you own a full auto weapon.If you think its heavy now wait until its loaded full of 45acp in a drum.
