Thanks ! That is some good advice but I am really sold that a Thompson is my next NFA acquisition. I would like to clarify what I think is correct. Please advise if I am mixed up. I am trying to learn all I can. I guess I need to get "the book" !
Is this summary correct ? I am confused about the Model of 1928 verses Model of 1928A1. Did the 1928 retain the vertical foregrip ? How does it differ from the Model of 1921AC ?
Model of 1921 - original Colt Thompson
Model of 1921AC - added Cutts compensator
Model of 1927 - semi-auto version - super rare
Model of 1928 - Not sure - ????
Model of 1928A1 - produced for Navy - ROF reduced, vertical forgrip replaced with horizontal foregrip - 8 overstamped 1
1938 Model of 1928A1 officially released
1939 - Savage contract singed - S prefix -
War Time - Lyman sights deleted, checkering deleted, barrel fins deleted,
1942 - M1 standardized - Blish Block eliminated, cocking knob moved to side, permanent stock, stick mags only, Cutts deleted
1941 - Bridgeport factory on line - AO prefix
1942 - M1A1 released - firing pin and hammer deleted - replaced with fixed firing pin
Thanks for any info !!
