A Perfect Pair!

We have two sets of wood in the 1921 standard shape, Iowa black walnut, crotch grain. Birchwood casey true oil finish. No stain of any type. Buttplates I acquired. Damon provided the stock slide assemblies. Tom will have to tell the rest. He was ducking hurricanes during the process.

The bottom gun is Colt 21ac,the `New York Daily News` thompson,with PK`s 21 internals,Damon`s slide that really tightens up the old girl....and in case you haven`t noticed,both have received Dan Block`s finest American homegrown wood!
I can`t thank all of you enough that helped with this project,the function of both of these Thompsons is as good as they look,I`m one proud papa.
We, in the NFA community are very fortunate to have such Craftsmen to rely on.
Thanks again guys!...

Those are sure purty!
Man, 21, you have one of the Daily News Thompsons!
I've allways wondered why they had them. Anyone know?

I used a similar woodset from Dan on my Richardson display gun.

Ya gotta live here to understand the distinctions of our local papers:
Post - Conservative
Daily News - moderate
Times - Liberal
Wallstreet Journal - Op-Ed page super conservative, bulk of the paper - moderate
Newsday - depends on the day
AM New York - who the hell knows, but it's free!!
And thus it goes...
