Default value of 1920's tommy gun?

I've recently come into some money, and I've decided I want to get a real tommy gun, not a reproduction. I'm talking about a genuine antique one. (with the drum clip) I wanted one for a while now, so how much do you think a working one will cost me? A link to somewhere I can find one would be even better. Thanks!

Gunbroker, welcome to the forum. Can you go by the introductions thread and tell us a little about yourself?

Very very expensive if you can even find an original one. Good luck.

like I said, money is virtually not an issue. I guess finding one will be the problem.

Look at Impact Guns Online Store


Since you were so accommodating in our simple request, I thought I would help anyway.

Lots of them out there for sale. Do a little Googlin'. You should be able
to find a decent shooter in the 10,000-14,000 range, a NICE one for around
20K. Highest priced one I found was a Colt--asking price 56,000.

If you can find one of the Originals you better have deep pockets. then you'll be strip searched. by the U S Gumbment. three months to a year to aquire a permit. Thats if they find you are sane enough to own one. $200 a year for the permit. Where the Sub goes so does the paper work and permit. you cannot seperate the two at any time. If you're caught with the gun an no papers they take your sub and you go to jail. If your lucky the price will start at $7,ooo if you're lucky. Now Back To Introductions. Wills in da swamp in La. ONE SHOT KILL!!!!!!!!Have a Nice Day
