I bought two partial 28 kits and both bolts were Savage,one knurled,one plain...function was perfect...looked good too,FWIW.out.

Savage, Savage/Stevens, AOC and Remington all made WWII GI actuators. Your chances of getting a Savage made one are probably in your favor, since they seemed to make most of them. Maybe you'll get lucky and get one of the other manufacturers, which aren't as common.

All GI parts from new to almost new guns.

actuator that looked to have been used very little.

I purchased 2 kits from IMA and I was not lucky enough to lotto a knurled actuator. Would anyone be willing to trade me a knurled for a smooth + CASH or possible other Thompson 28 parts?

Also, I have a question, will the '28 actuator knob and paddle safty work on the '27A1? Thanks.

The paddle safety is the same/interchangable but the actuator is absolutely 100% different and non-interchangable with the semi version. My suggestion for your cocking handle in this case is to order a spare or use your original and have PK turn it into a representation of the 28 style. There are photos of this modification somewhere in the board and PK's contact info is in the FAQs. Try search to see if the photos are still avail.
Hope that helps, Brent
