Nfa 1928 Tsmg In .22lr - Pro's / Cons
Posted 17 August 2003 - 09:02 AM
Also there is a 50 round drum for this available locally for this gun. Any comments on the .22 LR drums? Sorry for the newbie ? but I figured this was the place for this ?
All comments would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Also, did the West Hurley .22 only take stick magazines (though I may be thinking of the original .22 calibre semi auto versions that took a banana style magazine)? If you say you have a .22 cal drum, I am sure I am wrong. The only .22 cal full auto I've ever seen had some sort of weird stick magazine adapter in place where the drum would go. Does it look like these?
How much? I bet the rate of fire is outlandish!
Just a few thoughts.
Originally, I said I thought you could convert a .22 FA to .45. Looks like I was wrong about the receiver being convertable (thanks, PK--see post below). That explains why my receiver was steel and everyone thought it should/would have been made of aluminum. Learn something new everyday!

If you are looking for a .22 that is the most fun to shoot and plink with, consider the original belt fed Tippman mini Browning half scale versions of the .30 and .50 machine guns. They operate exactly the same as the full size Browning's and are a blast to shoot. Take your pick of full auto or semi.

Drums and "banana" were availble and required the adapter shown in the photos.

If they can not be converted to .45 then I would not recommend it.
For the most part, I would guess the drums and mags are very very rare and not enough available to keep the item running.
There are plenty of cheap 30 round mags available for the Thompson.
Not sure of the price of the .22 Thompson but figure you could get a .45 Thompson for a few dollars more, but if it is really the full auto .22 your after and not a Thompson then go for the American 180.

These are beautifully made, and caliber conversions are accomplished in the time it takes to field strip and reassemble the gun. The .22 configured Uzi weighs about half what it does in 9mm. Vector ran out of Uzis a few months back, but many dealers still have them.
