I believe all Thompson MG's are C&R now.  

I think the ATF even classified the newer West Hurley marked Thompson's as C&R because somebody petitioned ed them too.  The grounds was something about how rare they are.

pretty sure that ruling was big news about 10-12 years ago, but confirm before you buy.  I am just going off memory from a discussion on Subguns 10 years ago.

Ken is right- I just checked the C&R list.  They originally made the WH commemoratives and the M1 models C&R, as they really were rare, but excluded the 1928s.  Then someone asked again and they added them later.

Obviously, the original Colt Thompsons and the WW II production are old enough to qualify.

WH and USGI guns are clearly all C&R, but I do not believe all Thompsons would be.  I'm reasonably sure there are a few off brands (e.g. Pearl) that would not qualify, but they are such a tiny percentage of the pool.

What's the significance of them being declared C&R?

Well, if you hold a C&R FFL (which costs $10 and is good for 3 years), you can buy C&R NFA items direct from anyone, anywhere in the country, via a single Form 4: No need to go through an in-your-state FFL, no need to pay a second $200 transfer tax, no x2 wait time for a second NFA transfer.

In addition, a C&R holder does not need to file a 5320.20 to move C&R NFA items interstate. You can just take it with you whenever you want.

For $10, seems worth it I guess.  Still, if I were buying another MG, I'd probably just buy in-state.  Gives me a chance to inspect it, etc. before committing to it.
