Well, I finally have a pic of my own that shows off Paul's great work. Took this pic in Nebraska this last weekend at Operation Landslide:

Beautiful Thompson and a nice photo. Would you care to post any of the details as to what you had done? I can see something unusual in the muzzle and assume that the gun is set up for blank fire. Best regards!

Is that you holding the M1 ? You're a dead ringer for Damian Lewis,
the actor who played Maj. Richard D. Winters in 'Band of Brothers".
Congrats-very authentic kit.

And Nice Work, PK !

For God's sake man don't fire that gun! You have something stuck in the barrel! Clean it out first. laugh.gif

Yes, sorry, the details are as follows: TM-1 SBR w/ BFA, Mod GI Mag Catch, and PK checked for overall functionality. Just the basics. I still plan to have the bolt-hold open mod, and change the rear sight to the "L" sight, but that will be after my 1927a1/1928 project.

Thanks all,
Jaron
