If you'd like to see all of the pics, they're here: http://www.uzitalk.c...hlight=thompson
I'm not much of a photographer, but I'll try to keep adding to this.

Do you have any more info on the "thompson prototype" in one of the pics? Looks unlike anything I have read about, and looks almost like it is made from a 1911 lower frame...???

The gun in the West Point photo is the "Persuader" the very first belt fed Thompson prototype, patent applied for in December 1919 and is the Great Great Grand Daddy of the the Thompson.
Nice to see it in Colour.
