    went to the gun store the other day and was looking at some rifles and picked up a brand new 1927 Model Thompson Semi auto Carbine .45acp

    i asked the guy behind the desk and said some new company makes them now under the name thompson. it had the thompson stamp and everything just basically a 2006 version of the 1927 Semi auto carbine

    anyways the price is $1200.00 im sure i could get him to come down a little on the price if i was truly interested. but ive searched gun broker and the internet and havent been able to find any!

    so is 1200 way to much or is a decent price?? its NIB never been fired. with a 30rd (i think) stick mag and the forearm is the pistol grip style (which would defently go because i love the look of the straight forearm style lol)

    I believe they are being made by auto ordinance. Which is owned by, or owns Kahr. I understand quality is very good, I've played with a few at SGC here in Az. Price sounds about right if you could talk him down a few bucks anyway.

    My shooting club has a Class III wall. Right next to it they have a few Thompsons. In the Class III section a few months ago they had a Mil Spec Thompson. That was so sweet! If ever, it becomes legal to own a short barreled firearm again (i.e. without all the atf nonsense) that's second on my list ...But that's another story entirely.

    xd45gaper-

    I don't own one personally but there are a bunch of people here at this link:

    http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/index.php?act=SF&f=3

    that own them, or have experience with them. The boards main focus is with the full auto Thompsons but there are always discussions about the Kahr going on over there.

    Be warned, the Kahr does not have a favorable reputation. The general feeling is they need a lot of tweaking out of the box. But if you go there and do a little searching you will probably find the answers you are looking for.

    Good luck! Thompsons are fun.

    thanks ill check that sight out, its defently only a semi auto but ill search it for usefull info, as for the tweaking, i dont plan on shooting it a whole lot it seems the only time i would use it would be for target practice, general shooting, showing off to the buddys and home defense (imagine a robber seeing that!) lol

    You will see new ones in Shotgun News for around $800 from time to time when one of the big stores has a sale, I believe there were some for that price right after Christmas.
