Never heard of these. Anyone know what they are?
PhilOhio - you use these in your conversions?

I have bought a lot of UD mags being offered as Thompson mags.

The double 40-round UD 42 mags will not work in a Thompson. The front mag hits the receiver. The mag offset is 3/4" it ALMOST fits but not quite.
As mentioned the single UD mag fits perfectly.
There was a 40-round double inverted .45 Thompson magazine too. There is a photo of it in the magazine chapter of American Thunder II.

There is also a UD42 9mm magazine pictured in American Thunder II, again in the magazine chapter, it is posed next to a 20-round Thompson mag.
There was also a .45 caliber UD42 it was called the High Standard Gun. It preceded the UD42 and was tested by the Ordnance Dept. It faired very well.
The H.S. gun used Thompson mags.
The 9mm UD42 is a sweet piece, fast cyclic rate and VERY accurate in F/A.
The gun is machined steel and heavy. Designed by High Standard, manufactured by Marlin, marketed by United Defense. The entire story is in the USA Submachine Gun Book. There is a color photo of a UD42 on the cover of the book.
