An M1 or M1A1 runs about $4000, and there is one advertised at that price by Vic's Gun Corp. P.O. Box 17, Elsberry, MO, 63343, phone 573-898-3132.

A 1928A1 (military) runs around $6-7000. Try Sam at 956-687-2834. A 1921 goes about $10-12,000. I have not seen a 1927 for sale in years (the original semi-auto version, not the repro) and such rarities as guns for the .45 Thompson cartridge, or the 9mm are in museums.

Also try www.fjvollmer.com, (http://www.fjvollmer.com,) although they don't list any Thompsons at the moment.

Pick up a copy of Shotgun News and contact the dealers who advertise there.
