last summer my 15 year old son came to spend this school year with me. he had lived in indiana with his mother for 10 years before that.
the kid likes to shoot. and build stuff. a couple of summers ago we built him a motorcycle. sort of a little chopper mini bike.
so i thought he would probably like an ar. i got all the parts so they would be here when he got here. he built his from an 80% lower. he liked that. then he wanted to build a 1911. ok. so i have a couple. why not? he liked that too.
now he wants to build a thompson.
does anyone know anything about building thompsons? i have found the parts kits and 80% receivers, but haven't been able to find out what has to be done to it to make it work.
equipment isn't a problem. we have a machine shop just out the door. mill. lathe. etc.
any assistance would be appreciated.
