I expect to have the M1928/A1 blank guns ready by the middle of September.
To order I need your name, address, phone, etc. and the configuration of gun you
want. When i am ready to ship I will contact you and we can complete the order. I have
some of you already on my list but it can't hurt to double check. You can send me a
PM or email me at Philaord@aol.com or call 215-576-0259.
The gun is identical to an original gun except that it is an ATF approved non-firearm which
feeds, fires, and ejects brass crimp blanks semi and full auto like an original gun. The M1A1
model of the blank gun has been posted and discussed here previously.
I am offering M1928/A1 upper receiver assemblies for those that have a complete parts set which
they can use to finish the gun, and also complete guns.
The receiver assemblies have blanchard ground surfaces and are assembled with finned barrels
with compensators, grip mount, and complete bolt and buffer assembly. The receivers have the
patent number block, are marked Philadelphia Ordnance on the right side. The left side has
generic markings. The compensators are unmarked.
The receivers are drilled and tapped for rear sight screws so you can fit your own sight.
Like the M1A1 the M1928/A1 uses .45 caliber brass crimp blanks which are 50 cents
each and are packed in 200 rd. boxes.
Here are the configurations available:
Stripped barreled receiver assembly no rear sight. - $1995
(to complete this assembly you need forend and screw, ejector, rear sight (screws are provided)
frame latch and spring, trigger frame and buttstock assy.
Complete barreled receiver assembly with repro fixed L sight - $2125
(this includes all of the small parts listed above with a repro stamped L sight fitted - to finish
you need trigger frame and buttstock assy.)
Complete barreled receiver assembly with repro adjustable rear sight - $2275
(same as above but with the rear sight as found on the semi auto)
Complete barreled receiver assembly with original Lyman 55B rear sight - $2475
(same as above but with Lyman 55B sight)
Complete guns assembled original trig frame and buttstock in VG-EXC condition
M1928A1 with fixed L rear sight - $3300
M1928A1 with repro adjustable rear sight - $3450

Guns come with either a 20 or 30 rd. mag.

Prices are subject to change as original Thompson parts are fading fast.
