    image.jpg Up for sale and/or trade is this Thompson Contender. This is a second series of the first generation, as noted by the safety on the hammer and the cougar engraving on the side plate. Currently wearing a "Super 14" .44 magnum barrel with a Williams peep sight. The "super" designation denotes a heavier barrel. Is also currently sporting the hand saving "Competitor" grip. image.jpg

    Included in the package is a .45 Colt barrel that has a scope base attached. Of course the base and peep will swap to the respective barrels if you desire. There is a stubby fore grip for the shorter .45 barrel. image.jpg

    There is an additional two grips in the package, one a Pachmayr Decelerator, the other the "Cougar"medalioned thumb rest grip.

    The 102xxx serial dates this to 1978 manufacture

    From my research, each of these is priced as follows:
    Williams Peep $50
    Frame $300
    Barrels $225 ea ($200 to $250+ in some cases)
    Pachmayr grip $35
    Competitor grip $40
    Cougar grip $40
    Scope mount $10

    Which totals, like you don't already know, to $925 by my findings.

    Now, I don't like to pay retail, and my dear friends, neither do you, so I'm open to be reasonable.

    Let's call it $850 for cash price nazi's. I love to negotiate, but keep in mind I am by no means hurting to give up this sweet pistola.

    I thrive on trades as well. Rather than telling you what I'm looking for, it's easier to rule out what I have no use for, which is as follows:

    Anything in .40 cal, or odd calibers for that matter.
    Antique guns of any kind, why would I want it if I can't shoot it?
    Stupid, overpriced .22's
    Stupid, tactical .22's, if such it can be called
    Glocks, not cause they aren't great, but because I can't shoot reloads in them unless I invest enough money in them to just go buy a good gun.
    "Hunting" rifles, I have no use for a rifle to hunt game with, have what I need already.
    Most shotguns, again, have what I need/want already

    If I've completely shot down all your hopes and dreams of a trade by my ridiculous don't want list, feel free to still offer it. Worst I can say is pound sand. But you'd have to be pretty douchey to get that out of me. Most likely it'd be a, "what else ya got friend?"

    Ben, I appreciate the offer but I don't have much use for a other LC revolver. As tempting as it is, I think I'll have to pass my friend.
