Photos you've probably seen before. This is my WH M1 TSMG, after its trip to PK. I bought the gun NIB, but it experienced a failure of some kind about every three rounds. PK completely sorted the gun out, and completed the original milling operations originally omitted.

 

PK also refinished the receiver and frame, and added a milled grip mount and rear sight rivets of his own manufacture. The other parts are from an original USGI M1 parts kit in unissued condition. Most small parts are still in their original Dulite (blued) finish. The gun has the "bright" bolt, milled swivels, and plain, paddle style pivot and safety of the original M1s.

 

I took the photos using my old Sony Mavica digital still camera, an MVC-FD 85.

Good looking gun. I've been patiently waiting for a little more than 3 years for PK to tell me my number is up.
