The silence speaks volumes.
I bought a peice of crap didn't I?

The 22’s are a lot of fun to shoot, I have considered one on several occasions just because of that.
Like them all, there can be functional problems, but I never worried about that because I can fix ‘um.
A bigger concern was magazines. Now that the ban has lapsed, I hope more of the Italian ‘banana’ mags will be imported or made, they seem to be the best. It might be interesting to convert some of the 50 rd Ruger mags.
Bottom line; if it works, enjoy it. If it doesn’t, get it fixed and then enjoy it.

I may just do the range report. I have looked all over the web and there really is not much written about this gun. Not even general take down information. I will post more on this after I do some testing. It shoots flawlessly with CCI mini mags but it seems that everything I own in 22 functions well with mini mags. I have some other 22 ammo I can try and see if any problems develop. I was just afraid I bought a peice of crap and You guys were too kind to tell Me.

One thing to watch for is leading in the compensator. It builds up pretty fast in my gun.

| Ah ha! Found it. It's not very good but it's all I got.|
That is identical to mine except all I have is the stick type mags.
I do want to try and put a military type forearm on it and see if the guys at the machine shop in town can put the compensator over the barrel to kind of fool the eye into making the barrel look shorter. I will still keep the vertical grip for when I am in the mood for it. I just like the looks of the stick mags as they look more like the G.I. gun. (I like the military Thompsons) Id like to buy some more stick mags if anyone knows where they can be found. GPC is sold out of them. I thought this would satisfy My Thompson urge but I may have to buy a 45 semi next spring as this seems to just increase the desire for another one rather than satisfy it.

Beware of the Thompson itch. Just when you think you've scratched enough, it itchs somemore.
