Yes! there even is a drum greaser thanks to Mearle "the drum doctor"
I got some nice stuff at the SAR show and met some great friends again and met a whole lot more new friends.
Got a lovely unissued Seymour drum in the original box from Mike plus a pouch and a 5 cell 20 round mag webbing.
Three other drums including another nice Seymour from Gordon and a Colt 1928 and a nice Bridgeport. Also a British issue mag box which holds 10 x 20 rd mags,plus lots of amazing goodies such as mags, parts, webbing books etc ..but the two most amazing items were an original 1923 manual for the Colt 1921 and ....wait for it...
a 2ft x 3ft colour print of Whistler's Mother and her 1921AC (see page 388 of "Thompson: The American Legend") which is now framed and mounted and hangs above the fireplace in the den.
And a PS for Arthur,
There are now ranges where you can legally fire "C" class weapons here now and there is a growing public interest in such organised shoots etc, especially Black powder for some odd reason although black powder does not go so well in the 21A.

bring your own ammo, it is very expensive here.
My wife and I are planning to see you all at Fairfax Va., in August so keep your powder dry.
