board for a couple years now. Ordered a 27a1 and it's at PK's now.
Looking at all the pictures of what PK does to the guns is bad enough..
But, I have never held a thompson...
So, my friend and I are browsing the isles, and there is a 1927A1 on
a hard case. Point it out to her, explaining that I have one of those
that I have never even seen sitting out in Colorado. Looked at it
a minute, and thought, what they hell, why not hold it. Asked if I could
look it over, and that was when I screwed up.
Yes, I actually held it. I swear I heard a trumpet or two sound off
from the far corners of the hall. A light seemed to come down and focus on
me and a big ole shit eating grin appeared. Now this is a 27A1, not a FA..
god only knows what would have happened to me if I had picked up a real 1928a1.
I think I have been infected. Somebody at the BATF needs to hustle that SBR
Came home and held one of my Garand's but that did not help. Told my wife
what happened and was told "its a long drive to Colorado!"
Lotta help that was.
Its gonna be a long, long time till that gun gets here from PK's.
On a side note, the wood was really nice on this gun. Both the front grip
and pistol grip were nicely contoured.

Yes, you have been biten by the Generals bug!
Man, I can't even imagine holding a FA Thompson, but when you get yours from PK, it's sooooo nice and close.
Man, mines been back for a week and a half and I keep running downstairs opening up the case, putting the stock on, looking at it, Man, it's quite an illness. I believe the correct term is Obssesion!
Well, I know what your in store for, it's worth the wait!

About the only thing left to do would be mill my frame and add a Lyman site. From there the next step would be to take the full plunge into a FA.
Sure I'd love a Colt, but I'd settle for a AO 28.
LOL, I need a new profession.
My 27 is vacationing in CO as well, and the list of mods. keeps getting longer.

There is a scourge of guns- take them away from Hillary, Teddy, Barbara and Chucky’s body guards and the scourge will be lessened.
