Thompson M1 sub-machine gun manufactured by Savage Arms.
This M1 has original matching serial numbers on both the upper and lower receivers.
This is an unusual variant in that is has been fitted with the Lyman adjustable rear sight that was found on early 1928A1 Thompsons (and predecessor models).
The M1 and later M1A1 Thompsons were not issued fitted with the Lyman adjustable sight.
Therefore at some point this Thompson has likely had to be repaired and has had the adjustable sight fitted. It looks like a professional replacement of the sight, but I do not know who did it. There are no arsenal refurbishment marks on the M1.
The M1 looks to have almost all its original finish and is in near new condition, and the barrel is bright and shiny. There is a little bit of finish wear near the rear sight - I presume as a result of the replacement of the sight?
This M1 came from storage in eastern Europe and was complete with the adjustable sight when it was exported from the dealer in Europe.
This is a very unusual variation of the Thompson M1.
It will be supplied with a 20 round mag.
Usual permit to procure required.
Shipping (if required) will be sorted with successful purchaser.
