It's a Commando Mark 45. semi auto

Looks like it's in great shape. I will put my hands on it today

I basically know nothing about it. I'd like to find out all that I can and this forum has given me alot of great info in the past.

What's the history, the value?

And for the first time ever, the seller gave me some awesome photos.

Not high quality. If you are enamored with the look of the Thompson SMG and want a heavy, underpowered rifle that resembles one then have it. Seems to me some of these (maybe this one) were shut down by ATF because they were too easy to convert to full auto.

I dumped one a while back for something like 400 bucks - happily. I don't know how much of an indicator that is as I was underinvested in it and it was before any buying madness.

This auction was for the Mark 3 that takes the less expensive Greasegun mags. The OPs pics show a Mark 45 that uses the Thompson mags.

Here's links to the Mark 45 and similar PPCs. Enjoy.

The Apache is very close to the Mark 3 and was made out west.

The Fox Carbine is an entirely different animal and strangely interesting in its own right.
