I know these questions keep coming up. This guy has been selling a lot of small things, like his 1921 actuator kits and brushes. He says they are OK to bring into the US. His reason is something like they are replacement / repair parts, and they were not originally on a gun. So he says it is OK....

Now this guy is selling "bigger" parts. Look:

My guess is this would be touble to bring into the US.

Any comments??

Sure wished this stuff could come over, but as mentioned many times here, Thompson parts are restricted from importation. What really irks me is that some of that foreign stuff appear to have very unique markings and history. I remember when I first began looking at Thompsons seriously, it would have been so easy to bid innocently on something like this. How does the saying go-- God protects the babes and fools? Yep, there's a lot of good stuff sitting overseas and Ebay provides a tempting door for the unwary.
