Auto-Ordnance 1928 Thompson .45acp Transferable Sub Machine Gun w/ GI Part Upgrades


Status: In Stock / Please Call to Purchase

This Chester County Armory listing is for an excellent condition and professionally upgraded, West Hurley, NY factory Auto-Ordnance 1928 Thompson .45acp transferable sub machine gun.

Completely upgraded with the more reliable and better performing GI parts, and then professionally refinished to original specifications, this Auto-Ordnance Corp. 1928 Thompson .45acp sub machine gun is an excellent NFA transferable machine gun for the investment collector who desires to fire his machine guns. With the gunsmith upgrades completed, this West Hurley model will make an excellent “shooter version” with every bit of the functionality and reliability, but not the significantly higher associated cost of a Savage or Bridgeport 1928 Thompson.

Structurally and mechanically, this 1928 Thompson is in excellent overall condition, after having been professionally upgraded with GI parts and fully tuned by renowned gunsmith Mike Friend of Firing Line in Wynedotte, OK.  The bolt top shows some minor surface malformations, but has since been cleaned and refinished to prevent any further degradation. The receiver metalwork is all strong and solid, with no cracks, dents, dings, etc. The barrel remains clear and shiny with good rifling. The recently refinished exterior cosmetic finish is beautiful, with nice, shiny bluing on the sides and barrel and a complimentary matte finish on the top of the receiver, just like the original 1928 production model. There are some small wear marks on the top of the receiver due to the movement of the actuator, but this spectacular model has no other handling marks of note in the metalwork. The original wooden furniture notes only minor handling marks and indentations, as well, but all are functionally solid with no cracks or concerns.

Purchase of this transferable machine gun will also include an Auto-Ordnance 100rd “Magazine Type C” drum (serial no. 0290), as well as an original Seymour Products Co. marked 30rd box magazine and an original Seymour Products Co. marked 20rd box magazine.

This NFA transferable machine gun is currently on a Form 3 for easy eForm transfer. The NFA current paperwork lists “Form 2 Registration” as the manufacturer and “1928” as the model.
