I’m not in the parts business, but when i can’t get what I need I’m forced to make it.  About 10 years ago milled grip mounts dried up and I produced a batch, then the Russian cache was discovered and we have been in Thompson parts heaven for a while, but that’s coming to an end and it’s no surprise that milled grip mounts are no longer readily available, so I’ve produced another lot.


These are made to the 1920’s prints from the correct carbon steel and properly hardened.  They are suitable for live fire applications and not just display purposes, being as good as or better than the GI parts to which we have become accustomed.


Price is $67.40 plus $10 for priority mail shipping.  1st class is available upon request at a slightly reduced rate.


Cash, check or money order to:

If you have a West Hurley submachine gun with the late style riveted grip mount, I suggest you purchase one of PKs reproduction grip mounts as insurance for a future potential need. Original GI milled grip mounts are very difficult to find. I have one spare and have been offered obscene money for it. This product and price from PK is outstanding!

If you are going to post photos, you could have wiped the grease off so the uniform finish was truly represented.

You could have been polite in your response but instead you were rude and condescending so here we are.

I would like to buy one of your grip mounts if still available. Also do you sell the urethane buffers for a 28 Navy, if so could that be added to the grip mount order?

 

Thanks

I STILL HAVE TWO FROM YOUR FIRST RUN.  I GOT THEM FOR  " JUST IN CASE ".  I COULDN'T TELL THEM APART FROM THE ONE ON MY TOMMY. GUYS, I HAVE GOT TO TELL YOU THAT " PK " KNOWS HIS STUFF.  YOU WON'T BE SORRY YOU GOT THESE FROM HIM.

 

SORRY ABOUT THE LARGE PRINT BUT I AM GETTING OLD AND CAN'T SEE THE SMALL PRINT SOMETIMES.

 

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT " 4TH "

cbmott;  I had no intention to be either rude nor condescending, just factual.  I'm truly sorry i did not more clearly present my thoughts.  Tact is not known to be one of my finer attributes.  :-(

I didn't find it rude or condescending, it made me smile...before I read any other posts...knowing the high level of pride and quality Paul puts into his work, that is exactly what I would expect.

 

The work you did for me PK all those years ago still makes it my best of show in the safe.

 

cbmott...relax, it's going to be okay.

Motorcar, the comment wasn’t directed at you so it doesn’t really matter what you think. It’s done, chalked up as a misunderstanding before you chimed in. Now on with the show.

Then you shouldn't have posted what you did for all to see, it could have been done privately then the misunderstanding cleared up privately. Your are correct, it's done.

The grip mount in impeccable thank you. I would also like to purchase a urethane buffer if available. What would be the shipped price?

 

Thanks again
