Is anyone familiar with the semiauto Thompson (long gun) pre-Kahr rifles? How are they?
I have two S/A Thompsons
1. West Hurley 1927A1 (Gangster gun)
2. Kahr Arms M1 Thompson (side cocker that Tom Hanks had in Saving Private Ryan)
The S/A Thompsons are a lot of fun to shoot, however they are heavy. Don`t get the lightweight models. Kahr Arms quality is supposed to be better now than it was.
With either W/H or K/A you need to find ammo that the gun will like. 230gr Ball is the best but it could vary from brand to brand.
