I had an awesome idea for some AR handguards... so I need pics from all different angles of the forward grip of a tommy gun.

If anyone could hook me up I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Sorry. I have the M1 Thompson SMG, not a 1928.

Make a post over at www.machinegunbooks.com under the Thompson machine gun page. There are a lot of orginal Colt/Thompson owners, and they will love to help you out.

Or another idea check out SARCO or Numrich Gun Parts. And buy a Thompson forward grip. The grips are pretty cheap $25 to 35 bucks.

Keep us posted on your new idea for handguards.

This is an actual NFA registered working firearm.

I'd like to see someone come up with a 1/2 size M-16A1 that chambers .17 HMR.

The handguards and foregrip are both branchwood from mesquite. Finish is watco's danish oil, then a 5 to 1 mixture of miniwax colonial maple and miniwax red oak.

Waddya think?

Not my kinda thing. But the workmanship looks really good.

I wonder how that wooden forend will hold up when the barrel gets hot. Will it start smoking like an AK?
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 11:54:27 AM EDT
Holy shit, thats nice.

A little, but only after bumping off three 30 rounders and a 20 rounder back to back.

At least it smells like bbq!

WOW!! I wasn't expecting workmanship of that quality...I'm impressed
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 11:58:07 AM EDT
20% less evil!

I kinda like it.

Great work.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 12:00:10 PM EDT
that's absolutely beautiful. I've always wanted a wood finished AR. that just inspired me more.

did you do all the wood work yourself?
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 12:00:23 PM EDT
Looks great, but how does it group?

It would only look right if the wood was ebony.

Keep black rifles black.

(although I REALLY like the looks of the yellow (DeWalt) one I saw in a photo)

Thanks! Yep. You can probably do a search of my posts in the biy forum for a few threads with more pics.


Groups... well they all hit a paper plate at 80 yards, anyways. Thats from the standing position, not on a rest.

Actually, I've thought about doing an ebony set, but at 80 dollars/ board foot, I think I'd better practice with mesquite a few more times first.

I would kill to see the look on Pat Rogers' face if that showed up in one of his classes.

Nice workmanship though.

ETA: to avoid any hard fellings.

Some incredible craftsmanship, but I don't see anything that suggests that these actually fire live ammunition.

1Andy2, that is a great example of craftsmanship.

Well done.

After attending several of his class, he will ignore the existance, and give a lecture of butchered weapon and useless accessory for real operators.

When the item fails, the story will never end, and the story will be remembered and pass on to the next class, forum, and might show up in SWAT magazine, but the student name remains unknown.

This may come as a shock, but I didn't build it to aid in handling whilst cutting down hordes of infidels or godless communists.

I made it (1) for my own personal enjoyment. (2) As a learning experience. (3) For aesthetics.
(4) For uniqueness.

oh, and (5) for showing off on arfcom.

Eh, I think I'm going to start a rumor now that mesquite can stop most rifle rounds if the bullet strikes the end grain. Reason being that the fibers slow the bullet down without shattering the wood...

Dude that is very unique...and IMO, very cool looking.... you have a TommAR gun.

I can appreciate the wanting a unique gun...I'm not uber-tactical, don't use my ARs for my job, and it's nice to have something others don't. The AR platform has too much customizability. Maybe that's why so many people paint their ARs instead of adding things to them.
I say great job!

put a mag in it, would like to see that.

I'd buy some!!!

That looks "questionable". If you were a Computer Guy, in Oregon, they might take that from you and give you a receipt so they can check it out back at the station......
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 1:40:28 PM EDT
I saw a variant of this idea. The AR15 was a flat top with a BUIS and a flip up front site, along with the Thompson type grips.

It looked a lot like the Thompson. You needed to take a second look to realize it wasn't.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 1:46:57 PM EDT
Very nice work!
Cool to see something "different" on an AR
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 1:56:30 PM EDT
That is really beautiful work. You did a great job on this. I would love to see those parts on a nickel plated AR! (like that one in the chameleon weapons pictures)

Really really nice work! Enjoy
