Rowan County, in Salisbury, NC is selling a 1928 Colt .45 Caliber Thompson Sub-Machine Gun. The gun was donated to Rowan County by the United States Navy in 1966.

The gun is in excellent condition, including the wood which appears to be original. Comes with everything pictured, including the three stick magazines. This is a highly sought after double stamp model where the year model was updated for use during World War 2. Marked as a Model of 1928 (stamped over original date), No. 3694, U.S. Navy.

"The Model 1928 was the first type widely used by military forces, with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps as major buyers through the 1930s. The original Model 1928s were Model 1921s with weight added to the actuator, which slowed down the cyclic rate of fire, a USA Navy requirement. On these guns, the model number '1921' on the receiver was updated by stamping an '8' over the last '1'. The Navy Model 1928 has several names among collectors: the 'Colt Overstamp', 'The 1921 Overstamp', '28 Navy', or just '28N'."

NOTE: As this is a machine gun, all necessary licences must be held by the purchaser in order to take possession of this firearm.
