There are purportedly, supposedly, just maybe, six Johnson M1941s here in Sitka - assuming they haven't been snapped up and sold off to collectors in the lower 48. They were among the arms, along with many arsenal refurbed M1917s, supplied to Sitka's contingent of the Alaska Territorial Guard very early in WW2. Supposedly they surfaced at a yard or garage sale (Sitka gun show) several decades back. I know a fellow who actually handled one of them but decided against buying it because it didn't have matching numbers (his words). ARGH!
