I think I finally found one. I found it at IMA-USA. They had it listed as a M1 Thompson jump bag but I think it’s actually for the Reising. The description said that it was for a M1 Thompson with the stock removed. I think that is inaccurate since when the Para-Marines were really a thing I don’t think the Marines had many M1 Thompson’s and it says that the stock had to be removed from the Thompson to fit. Assuming that with the stock removed, a M1928A1 and M1 are relatively close in length (minus the Cutts of course) I think the bag is too short for a Thompson to fit. The Reising however, fits perfectly. I’ve been looking for one of these bags for close to six years.

it pays to be persistant,  lots of folks do not have the focus 

 

they post a want ad and when it goes un-answered they disappear,   my persistant wants are on a post it on the monitor  so i do not forget to check

 

good job & nice original find
