Zamm,that's a real nice Tommy you got there.Did Mr. Dan do your stock set or did P.K. do that to? What color tint did you use, if you don't mind me asking. Because Dan will be doing me a set of some fancy wood soon.
I will have to talk to P.K. soon about getting a acuator knob like the one you got on it.
And the list go's on and on.

One more thing is. Is it a big deal to put a 1928a1 or a M1 lower reciever on it ? Or sould I say what's all in volved with the process of adapting one to a 1927 A1 unsure.gif I've tried the search option but could come up with much.I've built a Fn Fal from scratch,so I learned quite a bit from that.

Elbow,

Thanks for the compliments. Most folks have seen this gun, and many like it.
The grandaddy of them all is "Project X", Lionhart's amazing semi.

The wood is all surplus, refinished according to the FAQ at top of list.
But, I've been thinking of a nice set from Dan, more Colt like...

There are pro's and con's on the frame choices. The 28' frames need a shim or something,
the semi being made a bit shorter in height to satisfy the BATF, ( that's why you must destroy
Mag's by enlongating the catch hole). With the original frame, you can swap out the mag catch and
drill out the pivot for the "selector". Must add a buttstock adaptor, and all that...Again, all in FAQ.

Ronmann,
Perhaps in the future I'll be able to get a few new shots.

Best, Zamm

I suppose "X" was quite an inspiration! smile.gif

Say Zamm, since your pulling out your Photo Albums, you have a shot of your Wife holding your Thompson? A side view showing all the Curves/Angles would be great!

Lionhart My Man,
You have just inadvertently given rise to a grand idea!
Being an artist of sorts, I'm thinking of a limited edition print,
a photogravure, hand inked and pulled copper etching.
Trying to get permission right now to photograph the Colt at the NY city
police museum. I think a real dramatic, high contrast, angled photo...
Could be something we might all want framed on the wall....
I'll get back to you on that wife photo smile.gif

Well, I hope this satifies all involved!
Again, it's an Oldie ( even "pre-PK") but has the required angles and curves! wink.gif

Elbow,
Thanks, they are fun.

PK,
If it would have sped things up, I would have smile.gif

Mike, She's got one hell of a fast trigger finger wink.gif
and, It was lunch, 98 degrees and the "Doc" had on some very short shorts, poor guy took one in the eye though!

Phil, I think she's ambi-something, and all kind of other things! laugh.gif

Time for some new photo shoots! rolleyes.gif

And who's the guy still eating!?
I'm awaiting for warmer weather also, I have a couple of models to model with my guns. I may see a Thompson calender in the works.

What an interesting idea Mike! There have been several photos posted that would make up a very interesting Tommy calendar indeed. Work on that, will you?

But color.  We want color.

ah no way man, b&w is the way to go, or even that antique way, the one with the yellow and black. that would be " da shizzle".

Devlin,

"Project X" was surely an inspiration for my gun. wink.gif

It proved to me that a 27A1 can look very good. cool.gif

Who is the proud owner of "X" now? If it's not you, I am sure that he (or maye she?) raoms this board.

It is a beautiful gun.

Zamm - your 27A1 looks great also. I love the fact that your family and friends share in your love for the Tommy. If I am correct, I have seen two or three photos that daughter and friends have taken with the gun.

Mike,
The guy still eating is me ( although a bit younger !). Made to finnish the lunch with two dead buddies!

Norm,
Thanks, you are correct, they love to pose with it. It's part of the house, part of the "aura" of this kooky place!
And it's helped by teaching my daughters the proper handling and respect of a firearm because of it being about the house, (wich here in Metro-NY, not many people get a chance to do, you know, someone picks up a gun and "boom", how did that happen?).

But again, If it were not for this list, Delvin's wacked-out project with PK and so on, it would never be what it was.

Man, we sure do have a lot of good looking semi's out there now between PK, Damon at Tommygunner, and all the ingenuity folks have in making something better.

Time for a new thread!
Zamm
