This is a strange one here folks! I wonder was this done during the war or was this someones post war play around the garage with spare parts and let's see what we can make with a hack saw!

It's scary!

I tried to post this the other day, but i couldn't get the link to work.
I think it's a very strange alteration.

I like the way the seller says the forearm is "modified". More like "massacred". That is about the dumbest thing I've seen in a long time...creepy too.

Not one, but two, parts of my favorite firearms where involved in this "accident"..The horror..

(No Thompsons where actually harmed in the making of this flim) The horizontal forearm isn't too rare and can be found for cheap..But the MP40 lower grip frame that's another matter...Anyways, a sad use for great parts!!

Strange item.

I do like how the guy states his disclaimer in the auction description:
