Smooth late actuator, unknurled paddle safety and rocker piviot but is it me or the picture; it looks like you have an early milled ejector ? kinda curious if it's a smooth or finned barrel. I'm envious of you.

it is an early milled ejector, with Serial #25688 it should be. it would have come with a finned barrel, but this gun is a rewat and the barrel had stylite (sp??) in it, so it was replaced. the barrel is 13 3/4" long, so it came from a WH 1927 pistol gun or whatever gun had a 13 3/4" barrel on it.
i wish i had the original barrel, so i could see more of the British marks on it. the rec. has the broad arrow on it. if it didn't have the broad arrow, i think it would have been a commercial, but not with UK gov't markings on it. pre-lend lease gun.

yes the stellite was put in the barrel to render it a Dewat. from the sounds of it, the bastard doing the dewatting back in the day, really wanted to make it a dewat, it was no light dewat in the barrel. good thing they only touched the barrel with that crap.
correct Phil, i've never heard of stellite lined Thompson barrels either. i have heard of M-60 barrels lined with stellite, but thats a different beast.

Great-looking gun! I own S-245XX, they can't have been too far apart in the production line. Is the finish on the receiver the original one?
