M6 Ingram bolts - 2 types ?
Posted 03 September 2017 - 12:30 AM
In specific early or late gun. I think early or commercial guns had selector for full and semi ? Later or military guns had 2 stage trigger - short pull for semi and long pull for auto. Would like any info concerning bolts.

Early guns had the same fire control system as later examples in my experience.
The two phase, single trigger fire control design is the most elegant and simple selectfire system ever manufactured, in my opinion.

Is it normal to have the serial number scribed on the bolt? Or was this something a PD would have done to keep a bolt W a gun
Mine has the bolt serial numbered

of the bolts I have one is numbered to the gun electro-penciled on the bottom rear , the others are not numbered at all. Unlikely PD's would have done that. That means it was disassembled for cleaning, and that means it was fired AND cleaned. Rare for a PD to have done either with these guns.

i knew i read it somewhere on line about the electropencil serial #'s....curious if yours is a later serial # or early? mine is in the 13xx range
just makes the gun more of a handmade garage gun...they couldnt even stamp the serial # in their nicely...funny

low 1300's. Lot's of guns have parts electro-penciled since this is normally done at assembly after everything has been test fit and fired. Mosin's, Enfields, etc. Stamping requires fixturing and substantial time to do unless it's on a rolling production line with indexable stamping dies. These guns were very low production with few survivors due to unlucky market timing.......like many other firearms, never commercially successful.

i think they were the perfect prison gun...simple, light, small....and can do everything a Thompson can do other than being slightly worse at crushing skulls......toss it in the corner of your guard tower
the safety that just rolls around and doesnt stay in place i think is its biggest flaw....if i were a policeman carrying one i would keep the bolt closed when walking around with it...
