the law is a little bit harder and stranger here.
every new main part requires a new permit:barrel,frame,receiver,....
i'm certainly not pulling yuor leg,just asking before I do something I might regret.
by the way,it's almost impossible to find a new barrel for the thompson over here,and if you find one,.....think about 600 bucks(imports taxes,..)

I would think that since the original Thompsons, 21's, 28's, M1's, M1A1's were short barreled that closer ranges would not be affected but the longer the distance the more noticable the accuracy will be. It is a .45 so accuracy at a distance will most likely not be all that tight of a pattern. The best persons to answer this question would be those of us in the USA who did a SBR conversion of their weapons. Just my thoughts.

I do not ask for legal advice,I'm just asking for the opinion from people who have experience with Thompsons.
This is not a legal question and i'm certainly not a terrorist! just looking for some real advice.
since I'm the only one in my club with a 1927 i can't get any advice over here.
what is the matter with being an European? I eat Mc donalds,shoot American firearms (colts,sharps,1911's ,....)and collect American Jukeboxes(will be there in Chicago in 2 weeks for the show)
So will shorten the barrel to 10,5 inch make the gun inaccurate?
thanks and i hope someone will understand and can help me here
BTW I'm even sponsering the NRA

I certainly wish we had someone like PK.
I saw his works and ,well he knows what he's doing.
it would certainly be mush easier for me to get things done.
