    I have a lead on a nice decommissioned transferable Tommy gun. Any thoughts on its value? I don't know much about them or how to tell a good one from a bad one.

    Is it a deactivated war trophy (DEWAT?)

    Those can be reactivated by sending in the form 1 and paying the $200 tax. If it has all or mostly original USGI parts it'd be worth more than the West Hurley copies which are currently sitting around $18-20k on various NFA ad boards.

    Condition & method of dewating makes a big difference in price. Provenance could run the price up further if tied to the right person or battle. Registered dewats are become harder to find. I would ask to see what else he may have in his possession.

    Start? Ha! Maybe start my MG collection.

    It's offered at $21k. I thought that was a smoking deal based on other MG prices I know more about. Now I'm not so sure.
