As for the Soviet Thompsons, I have seen a couple of them and I sure wouldn't want to try to shoot one, tie-wrapped or otherwise. The chamber is drilled and blind pinned, and the barrel has a 1/8 inch wide saw cut from the chamber to the compensator. The upper receiver is cut (albeit saw cut), into three sections with about 1/8 to 1/4 inch gap between each section.
As previously noted, the demilled bolt and de-eared mag could be replaced, but believe me when I say, in their present state of preservation, "THEY WON'T SHOOT".
By the way, they were inspected and approved by US Customs and delivered by the USPS.

On another subject, is everyone aware of the campaing Bob Adams is waging to get another amnesty period. If not, may I suggest you take a look at his web-site then email your Congressman and Senators.

Your reply to my original post sparked my interest so I did some more investigating. I managed to obtain the following additional info on the Soviet Thompsons which I believe will be of interest to you. A person who owns one was kind enough to retrieve the original shipping container from his garage so I could examine it carefully. He saved the package in case anything like this ever came up. Almost everything on it is written in Russian but there is one interesting rubber stamp on the brown wrapping paper in red ink, which reads, "Postmaster: This parcel has been licensed pursuant to the requirements set forth in the Gun Control Act and released by US Customs, New York". The owner said the package, which had been opened and the interior almost totally destroyed, was delivered by a US Postal Carrier and that his wife witnessed the delivery. I assure you the testimony of these two is reliable.
