Today I went to a Gun Show in Gonzales, LA where I found a collector with a TP-70 beautifully engraved.
The slide on this gun said "Norton TP-70" and under it, very small font, "Americanarms" (one word). He said that all TP-70s were imported.
Also this gun would lock open with the empty magazine in place, but mine would not. He said that maybe the locking spring is missing.
So now I am hunting for this spring. I would appreciate it very much if somebody knows where one is for sale and tells me.
The collector was asking $1,300.00 for his gun and would'nt trade his for mine, can you believe it?
