Remington Arms Company has donated 85 firearms and works of art from its private collection to the new NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops flagship store in Springfield, Mo. The items include original oil paintings used in classic Remington ads, early models of Remington firearms, prototypes and experimental firearms, Milestone guns such as the 10 millionth Model 870 and the first R15 rifle and more.

“We would not be able to present the history of the American sporting arm without help from America’s oldest gunmaker,” said NRA National Firearms Museum Director Jim Supica. “The items from the Remington Factory Collection exemplify both the NRA and Bass Pro ideals of freedom and conservation.”

Joined by nearly 1,000 additional firearms, Remington’s artifacts help the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum trace the evolution of hunting and sporting guns with one of the finest firearms collections ever assembled.

Rifleman Q&A: U.S. Model Of 1928 Thompson Variants

I was reading an auction catalog, and a reference was made to an American military Thompson submachine gun. It stated it was a “1928 Colt Navy overstamp, not a Savage.” The catalog made that verbiage seem important. What’s the significance of the “overstamp,” and were there other military 1928 Thompsons besides the Navy guns?
