Chicago Typewriters For Sale

If you want one, contact Midwest Distributors. They are in the process of purchasing 27 Thompsons from the St. Louis Police Dept.

The guns will be pricey. The department is getting $22K apiece. The article mentions that some of the guns are rather rare. Also, they've been sitting in an armory for over sixty years.

Antiques, eh?

Alas, not a gangster, nor a collector, nor rich.

"Antiques" in that they were made before the cutoff date for manufacturing machineguns that can be transferred to civilians.

I don't know what the current market is for prewar Thompsons, but I'm guessing that they go for $30K or better.

Wish I had $30k to spare. They aren't very useful, but ooweeee!
