It has been over a year since I first posted the gun. I have caught up on orders and can ship guns in 2-3 weeks. Here is a video... Bob/Phila Ord

Unsolicited endorsement: These are beautifully made and work great. Know it or not, you need one.

 

All of my firearms are kept under lock and key except my Phila. Ord. M1A1 blank gun, which is always out where it can be seen.

   Yes, am working on the M1928A1. However, unlike the M1A1 where we are

making trigger frames, I am not set up at this time to make trigger frames for

M1928A1 so at the beginning it will be a complete upper (except for rear sight -

you can screw on your own - holes threaded and screws supplied) and you

supply the trigger frame and stock assy. The barrel will be finned and have a

compensator, the cocking handle will be a ball knob (sorry not knurled) and

it will take stick or drum magazines.

 

Doing my best...

To much voter fraud for that to happen

Couple of questions. Have you figures what your upper will sell for and if a sight was sent, would you rivit it onto the blank upper? Also what are the blanks selling for?

Blanks are currently 50 cents each, sold in boxes of 200. Looks like Starline brass.

Bob,

 

Great to hear you are working on a M1928A1, would like to be placed on the list for one of the uppers.

 

Questions:

- Price for the 28 upper

- Expected delivery dates

- Accepts standard magazines? No special mags for your blanks?

- Is the bolt going to be a True 28 with Blish lock, or a modified M-1 style. 

 

Good luck with this project.

 

Paul
