Anyone have one of these? Looking for a new 'fun' gun and what could be more fun?
Any thoughts on:
Quality of the product?
Reliability?



Thanks for any info.

I have one and it's really fun. Didn't like the stock so I cut it off and put a GPC adapter on it to use the detachable 1928 stock...much better. Quality is ok, had to touch up some of the blue from scratches caused by the box. Gobbles ammo from sticks and drums, had to fix a ten round drum to make it work, and my original 50 round drums work fine also. Good luck!

Is this the newly manufactured Thompson SMG? I know Auto-Ordnance (Kahr) bought out Thompson a while back.

I too am interested in the QUALITY of these, as I know the original Thompsons were quite a reliable gun. Nothing like a .45acp smg!

How much do these cost?

These are the semi-auto versions and go for about $700-750.

I had one. Neat at first, but got old quick.

Mine was reliable with good ammo.

Not real good accuracy, but that's not what it as ment for.

Completely different animal that a real Tommy.

Registering one as an SBR and putting a SMG barrel on it might be a neat idea, though, if possible.

Try the NFA ad board over at www.subguns.com. Mags aren't that bad, but expect to may more for the drums than you did the gun.
