A Brazilian Guy Need A Help!
Posted 02 September 2003 - 11:52 PM
Well, my name is Wagner, and i live in Brasil. So, i have 19 years old, and, for that i CANT have my own thompsom m1
But, i can buy a replica you can say; no, i cant, the federal laws here in brazil deny ANY importation of guns replicas, air soft guns or something like...
Ok, i have decided to make my own replica... Using a "wooden peg, spigot, lathe" (i dont find the correct word in the dictionary) in aluminium, or steel and wood,but for that, i need some measures, and pics that show details hard to find on internet... Like te measure of the receiver, or the Buttstock.... How i could make a good frame?
My plans is to make a non-fireable replica, single, but beautyfull....
I will try to search here in the forums for more informations, but, who can help me,please!send esquematics, pics, measures for me!!!
Thanks for all!!!! and sorry my bad english, please !!!

I don't have what you need , but I'm sure if you look around on the different "guns for sale" sites like "GunBroker.com", etc. you'll find the prints for sale. I've seen them before.
I'm sure some of our board members has them , but if they send them to you, don't know!!.. Remember, they had to track them down at one time too!!!..
Good luck & keep us informed on your progress.

but i dont want the blueprints or something like... only some measures, to my replica be "good scaled"...
I will try to buy a thompsom m1 cd-rom, but for me,it will be veeeery expensive (dollar is 3xtime more expensive here in Brasil)
In this cd i will find all measures of each part?
P.S: if someone here have the blueprints (thompsom M1),can you scan some parts and send on my mail? I will be gratefull and will put your name on my holydays cards list!
