New Sa Thompson Owner

Complete newbie to Thompsons.
I'm from Wisconsin and have my first SA West Hurley Thompson on the way. The serial number of this gun is less than 300. My FFL should have it Friday from the UPS man w/ 11 30rnd magazines.
What can anyone tell me about this gun?
Here is a pic from the seller:

That is a clean looking M1.
Serial number indicates it's from the first year they produced the M1 semi at West Hurley, 1985.
Should work just fine. This board is a great center for info, lot's of knowledgable
folks here allways willing to lend a hand.
One of the members was producing an extended horizontal foregrip to fit the semi's extended barrel.
If you do a search, there is a photo. The effect was quite nice, giving more of a balance to the gun.
Aside from that, if it shoots good your home free. Otherwise our resident Thompson wizard smith,
PK will make it run like a clock.
