The gun is an M1 registered receiver built by Philidelphia Ord. I've seen the dummy receivers Bob built and they are pretty good. I know he made some prior to the 86 law but how do they compare to other " Thompson Replicas" as Art fliegy would put it? Would the price be comparable to the westys or pearl guns.
Thanks for any info.
Frank

Sorry amafrank my bad..... I thought it might be the same one that was just discussed but I guess it is an M1A1 made from a semi bolt not from a registered frame...... blink.gif Some of steens verbage confuZed me a bit when he was talking about the reciever on his prospective gun.....

At least I can figure out when I'm wrong unike some on this board. soapbox.gif

Sorry Z3 if I offended. That was not my intent. I hadn't heard anything previously on these.....

I can tell you that this one is not a converted semi....it is a receiver registered by Bob Bowers? at Philidelphia ordnance prior to the 1986 ban on MG manufacture. I know he was a class 2 and I've seen his registered MP40 tubes but never a thompson. Just trying to figure out what the price range should be on this one....
Thanks guys.
Frank
