I appreciate all of the info and I agree that the price guides are just that "a guide". The Blue Book has them @$2,875.00 40 o/o and $3,950.00 for 70 o/o. The owner is asking $3,000.00 gun only and he calls it Vg to Exc. Have any of you ever seen an original holster with the PC embossed? Better yet do you know of one for sale? Thanks Ron for the Philippine Constabulary info and David I had no idea Thompson the inspector was related the Tommy Gun designer. Glad to find this site and I hope I can contribute in the future.
