Serialization for Thompson / Center firearms is problematic. We apologize because we did not record the serial numbers off all the muzzleloaders we sold over the past forty some odd years. We further apologize that we will not be able to take questions or date guns for everyone, we don't have time for that, and our Mr. Sullivan simply cannot forward and reply. We do welcome new and reliable information on Thompson Center serialization.
Here are simply notes we have taken from our A&D Firearms records since 1969. The used specimens we have marked, but a fairly good rule of thumb is that they were usually 1 to 3 years old. GGS is George's Gun Shop, a distributor in Louisville that we did business with from the 1950s until Mr. Hoferkamp's retirement in the late 1990s. EB is Ellett Brothers. Mid-South is Mid South Shooters Supply in New Market, TN. SGI was Shiloh Guns, a Mississippi Distributor. OSHI and Dayton GH were Ohio distributors.

We Buy, Sell, or Trade. Always have.
Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
