Hi all! Well, last evening I received my long awaited Police Case from Greg Fox. I have to say, the wait was worth it! This has to be the finest reproduction Case I've ever seen. Top quality! Weighs in at about 13lbs. I had this built for my Project "X" Gun, so the Case Length was extended to 3 5/8". To accommodate the extra inches, two more provisions were added for XX Magazines. A Gordon 1921 Style Cleaning Rod can be seen in the last two Pics. Overall, a beautiful Case, that is way too nice to use!

Yep, that's why I need the new wood...it keeps getting chipped up when that damn MG42 bangs into it when I go around corners. Most of the time I stack the 1919A4 and Bren on top and that will stop them from rolling around. But the Bren has been in the shop and the 1919A4 I left up at the cabin.

I purchased a fox case last year. You have good reason to be happy. After purchasing several other cases thru the years, without question his cases are outstanding.
Great Photos..
ONLY one Thompson? sad!

How many Thompsons can one really carry?? Hmmm. Greg Fox is from Florida. The Cases are around $630.00 Though this one being Custom, was a little more. He can be contacted through email at: AFox919853@aol.com Took around a month or so to receive. Not bad!
