Wtb Parts Kit
Posted 28 April 2004 - 12:46 AM
Can anyone help me with a parts kit. I will need every thing except the receiver. will need a new barrel and lower assembly, all the upper parts all of the wood. The receiver has the Lyman sights so dont need those.
This is not a trick question. We can rebuild a full auto Thompson down here, the receiver is already registered and I can obtain the paperwork to import the rest of the parts, usually takes about a week for the "permit to import"

They've got the entire parts set, less the chopped section of the receiver, wood included for $999 plus shipping.
Their phone is 001-908-903-1200. New Jersey (Eastern Daylight Time, same as Washington, DC). They're great people to deal with and have geat parts.
The reference number from their add is XU1929.
Hope this helps.

As they say - do you feel lucky? If so - here is most of what you need.
Note that the high bidder "the mad asparagas" has bid twice, and not yet found the reserve. My guess is this could (should) be had for less than IMAs prices, but it is missing the forend and gripmount (and sight, which you don't need). Strange things do happen on Ebay though. Fun to watch, if nothing else.

Although IMA is definitely a good source, you might consider a European supplier. I would think it would be cheaper for you and better for us, in terms of our limited supplies. This is assuming you don't have the same import restrictions as us. Definitely, do everything by the book! Just a point of consideration, wish you well in your project.

They say the kits are all just like this - the $999. will not get you a lyman rear sight - just the sheet metal folded sight.

We picked up this receiver in a Auction a few years ago for about NZ$140.00 (US$80.00) . Some idiot had stripped the gun and sold the parts. The barrel is a bit "poked" (thats Kiwi for ruined) hence the need for a new barrel.
The receiver is still registered as a "gun" and thus can be rebuilt.
Again, many thanks and we will see you all at Fairfax in August.

I was thinking the same thing. Certainly we have a limited supply and once they leave the country they won't ever be back.
