I finally got my Broadhead Armory registered full auto conversion firing pin (model M1927) today!

After an incorrect fingerprint card, wrong serial number written on the form 4, and one "lost" application; they finally got it all straightened out.

It took about 8 months.

Norm,

Having the wrong serial number on the form will definitely foul the works up. I bought a gun with serial number SN XXXX and my dealer put only XXXX on the form without the SN. What a zoo.

Fred,

You should have seen the look on my face when I called NFA to check the status. They asked me for the SN of weapon. I gave them the number (that I read off of the copy of the form 4). After about ten seconds, the lady replied, "I'm sorry, that serial number is not on the registry." ohmy.gif sad.gif mad.gif

Kevin,

It will still be a while. I have to send it off to be assembled into a gun. When it's done, I'll give you a yell!

OK, my M1927 firing pin with a big bag-o-parts is on it's way to PK. biggrin.gif

I can't wait until this gun is done! wink.gif

Thanks Walter, but to be honest; it is not a gun yet- It is just a pile of parts with a registered firing pin.

I have every confidence that PK will hammer it into beautiful weapon. wink.gif

This gun will actually have a special significance to machinegunbooks.com. Almost every part of the gun will be made from members of this board. ohmy.gif

The only parts not made, refurbished, or retrofitted by members at this time are the stick magazines, small internal parts, and Lyman rear sight.

Even the reciever of the gun was made by a board member ohmy.gif (REMEMBER: Though it will be a full-auto with the registered firinig pin, it is built on a 27A1 receiver, NOT a 28 receiver.)

I plan to let people know that my Thompson SMG (variant) is the result of the knowledge of people right here!

Also, I plan to give a full list of credits to everyone who has had a part in making this "spruce-goose" get off the ground. This project has been almost two years in the making!

I will let you know when the gun is finished.
