ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Up for auction is a fully transferable Auto Ordnance West Hurley Thompson US Model 1928 Sub Machine Gun. The machine gun is in GREAT condition. This is an excellent example of a post-war, commercial Model 1928A1 Thompson Submachine Gun manufactured by the Auto-Ordnance Corporation of West Hurley, New York, c. 1980. The West Hurley Thompson Submachine Guns were newly manufactured machine guns capable of automatic or semi-automatic fire. They feature new production receivers and trigger frames that may have some WWII era surplus parts. This gun duplicates the pre-war military version of the Colt/Auto-Ordnance Model 1928 Navy Over-Stamp Thompson that was purchased in small numbers by the Navy, Marine Corps, and Army. The gun has a blue finish with straight grain American walnut stock, forearm, and pistol grip. The gun has many of the features found on pre-war Colt and wartime Auto-Ordnance and Savage Model 1928/1928A1 Thompson Submachine guns including a Cutts type compensator, finned barrel, bolt actuator mounted in the top of the receiver; adjustable, folding leaf, rear sight; and detachable buttstock. The receiver is notched to accept 50 or 100 round drum magazines. The stock and forearm have military sling swivels. The gun utilizes a number of WWII or post-WWII components that were not utilized on the Colt/Auto-Ordnance Model 1928 Thompsons; these parts include: (1)un-checkered/re-shaped bolt actuator (2) Model 1917 Enfield folding leaf rear sight (3) simplified M1/M1A1 pivot pin and safety and late style stock with cross-bolt reinforcement. The markings on this gun are different from pre-war or WWII Colt/Auto-Ordnance/Savage Model 1928 and Model 1928A1 Thompsons. The Auto-Ordnance “bullet” trademark is roll-stamped on the top of the receiver in front of the rear sight. The left side of the receiver is roll-stamped in two lines with “U.S. MODEL 1928/N0. 704A” followed by “THOMPSON SUBMACHINE GUN/CALIBER .45 M1”. The right side of the receiver is roll-stamped in two blocks “U.S. PATENT” over the six-line patent numbers and “AUTO-ORDNANCE CORPORATION/WEST HURLEY, NEW YORK, U.S.A.” The trigger frame is not serial numbered. The gun ships with a hard case, and two 30 round stick mags.
