I just purchased hundreds of WWII Thompson parts. Can anyone identify the barrel at the bottom of the picture? The barrel thread if different than the rest.Attached File  tb.jpg   60.96K   72 downloadsAttached File  tb1.jpg   53.49K   61 downloads

It looks like a Reising Model 50 barrel missing its compensator and front sight. It has been awhile since I had a loose one off a receiver.

It appears to be from a Reising model 50

The thread into the receiver should be 7/8-18

The thread into the compensator should be 7/8-24

Looks like its a transition barrel... blued and has a compensator but only has 14-fins.
