According to the book, those retail in NIB for $425-$375 range. mags are m-3 grease gun mags. Fun to shoot, no collector value what so ever...... Good reenactor gun, just keep it in the truck....

A quick check of the web shows that in the last two years these have sold for in the neighborhood $250-400 with asking prices up to $650. This is, by the way, as much militaria as anything sold by At The Front or other replica makers.

Best answer

Sort of......

the lower is cast and there were two versions, one that has a paddel mag releice and takes a thompson mag and another that has a push button and takes a m-3 mag. Looks like a thompson until you get closer than 15 feet......
