M1 Thompson Hardcase
Posted 17 May 2005 - 06:06 PM
A few collectors have expressed interest in a custom hardcase for these guns. I'm considering building an Alabama style case to accomodate the M1 type guns with the buttstock attached. The case would have similar hardware to Police case ie. metal corner protectors, draw bolt latches, lock and vinyl or leather outer covering. The interior would be cotton velvet like the police case. Pricing would be about the same as current Police case price of $539.
If there is interest in this type of case let me know.

I might be interested in just such a case for my WH M1.

Are you thinking of a FBI style case that you could use for the M1?

It's a good idea. I'll measure the FBI style case and see what needs to be done.
The M1 series Thompsons present a couple of problems for the FBI type case. The actuater knob is on the side and requires a cut-out in the divider. It also requires that the gun be placed in the box with the muzzle at the right end so the actuator cut-out is in the divider and not the outer wall of the box. The rear sights will dig into the bottom of the case in time and will require a block of some kind to keep this from happening.
It could be done.
Thanks for your thoughts,
