Hi TSMG Board,

Just wanted to thank all of you for your input and advice re: the purchase of a TSMG "shooter". Well the day has finally come and my approved form 4 has arrived at my Class 3 dealer. I'll be picking up the little honey tonight and bringing her home.
Needless to say I'm very pleased. I already know the gun runs flawlessly, but now that I get to take possession of the gun I feel a sense of relief.
The Thompson Board is a truly great resource.

Anyway, Thanks Again,

Johnny

1930's Rust,

I've taken the gun out for a few runs. It functions flawlessly. I've put a WH L Drum through it, a N.Y. N.Y. L Drum thru it, and many XX an XXX mags through it without a problem. I also purchased a '21 kit from PK, and the gun functioned perfectly.
I appreciate your help, and I thank you for the info you have compiled on this message board. The TSMG Board has been a great resource for me during my search for a TSMG.

21 smoker,

Thanks for the reply.
I'm very happy with the gun and how it functions.
I can't believe how long it took to process the Form 4, but the wait has made tonight all the more special. I'm very happy.
Have a Good Weekend and Shoot your TSMG.

Thanks everyone. It was about a 16 week wait, but well worth it.
I'm very pleased with the gun, and I'll try to post pics.

Enjoy your TSMGs,
Johnny
