Your Opinion On My New Tommy (member From Italy)
Posted 02 March 2005 - 06:56 AM
finally I have my Tommy. It's a M1A1 by Auto Ordnance. I can read the following markings: THOMPSON SUBMACHINE GUN - CALIBER .45 M1A1 NO.599196 on the left side of the upper receiver. AUTO ORDNANCE CORPORATION - BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT, U.S.A. on the right side. U.S. PROPERTY behind the rear sight and the Thompson logo in front of it. It has a MR mark (???) on the butt stock (left side near the sling swivel). It was modified to samiauto keeping the full auto selector to accomplish the italian laws on military guns. The barrel should be brand new with a Cutts compensator-like to have a longer barrel (short barrels are not legal for military guns). The magazine has a CO mark (???) but it was cut to ten rounds to be legal (but I'm going to buy a 20 rounds one). Metal parts were refinished according the original finish (unfortunatelly!) but the stock is fully original in excellent conditions.
What do you think of it? Have you additional useful info for my Tommy? Thanks and SEMPER FIDELIS!
