West Hurley 1928 Semi Question
Posted 30 April 2004 - 12:21 AM
I'm new here and just got a 1970's West Hurley S/A. I'm pretty handy with rifles as far as dismantling and building. When I look at the Thompson lower I am confused how it operates. Is there a diagram that shows the parts close up and maybe step by step instructions how to chnge some small lower parts. Some of my lower parts are WORN out! Looking for any help at all....

Gunparts should be able to assist with replacement parts. There are some parts that are differant between the AO and the Kahr 27's. One example is the bolt and firing pin.
When I purchased my Kahr it came with manuals for both models.

I would think that the older style bolt/firing pin might hold up better.

Hmmmmmmmm, another mystery perhaps addressed!
When I bought my West Hurley 27-mid 70's, I was allways curious about why the bolt was pitted
on a "new" gun directly from the factory. I just thought that perhaps it was cast and these were the telltale air bells
prevelant in cheap work or something. But it allways had the look and feel of a part that was not new...
PK, is that an M1 bolt in my Westy? That would be nice, to go along with my half Lyman sight!
P.S. I have to agree, the starting post of this thread sure looks like a fishing trip.

are the full auto lowers different - i think i remember someone on here saying u can use lowers from FA parts kits on the west hurley and kahr semi autos

The FA lowers can be adapted to the SA guns, but they are not interchangeable outright. Little in the actual fire control system is the same between the SA and FA guns.
