    one of the guys on a non-gun forum came up with this box at a garage sale - looks like a Thopmson stock as well as some very interesting stuff - if interested drop me a note - Please no tire kickers - tom

    I just found one for 30 bucks - I was thinking that it might be worth more than that - anyway the other stuff is pretty interesting - tom

    What else is in the box? It looks like WWII era stuff.

    There are tons of brand new, original Thompson buttstocks out there. At the recent Chantilly, Va., gun show, there was a guy with a box of maybe 50 new, unissued M1928A1 stocks (the early ones without the reinforcing crossbolt), and he was trying to sell them 3 for $10, and not getting many takers. I picked up one with the crossbolt at the Aberdeen, Md., jeep rally for $3 (it had obviously never been on a gun).

    So the wood is cheap. The hardware to go on it is expensive -- a set of buttplate, swivel, mounting bracket, screws, etc., goes for about $60 in used condition.

    The photo shows the bare wood of the less-desirable M1 model. It would be interesting to see what else is in the box.
