Not one Jam I shot Winchester Value Pack 230 Hardball Exclusively, Fit and finish is not bad but while cleaning it prior to shooting it I cut my fingers twice on machined edges and barked two knuckles due to that little tiny cocking knob... In cleaning it after shooting I noticed a wire edge in the breach area under the ejection port, also soem other sharp edges in that area I broke them with the trusty dremel and touched the bluing up a bit nothing noticable. On the outside the thing is absolutely flawless and I looked it over pretty good. Was pleasantly surprised by the weight. I plan to SBR it soon but I have some other medical stuff that I am going through right now that precluded my wanting to wait that long. After I am finished with this medical stuff then I should have the paperwork back to do the SBR this way I get to enjoy it while I can now...
Then SBR and Enjoy it even more. biggrin.gif

Oh that was just the amount through the Thompson... That target took a few hundred rounds some 357 some 40 S&W and some 9mm out of my AR Carbine... But the bulk of the damage was the Tommy Gun, THe tighter groupings are the Thompson Took me a minute to figure out the sights the notch at the top works out at 25 Yards and the Peep works in closer... Actually both work fairly well up to 25.... I think I am going to use this at my next tactical match and wear WW2 gear ..... Should be cool rapid reload is gonna take some practice!

Thanks! I wish I had not gotten the shadow on there but it turned out pretty well!
I felt like I needed to be wearing Sgt. Saunders uniform when I was shooting it... biggrin.gif
