I'm fairly new to the subgun collecting world. I already own an MP40 and purchased a couple of FBP bolts to run a fixed firing pin system in the gun. They work perfectly as long as I'm running hot ammo.
Now, at long last, I'm shopping for a Thompson. I'm leaning towards a 1928A1 model but wondering if I can run the M1A1 fix firing pin in a 1928A1 receiver?
I've purchased Iannamico's "American Thunder" book and as usual, was an excellent read and a great starting point for my Thompson education. But still don't know if I can run the fixed firing pin in a 1928A1. I'm waiting on the delivery of "the Ulitimate Thompson Book" by Tracie Hill. And of course, reading this form may be the best education as I find questions I haven't even thought about asking.
In any event, if someone owns a Thompson and has tried to do this and you care to share your experiences, it would be greatly appreciated.
Any other thoughts or advise for a Thompson newbie are always welcome.
