Were the buffer tube/pilot/disc combinations made for the 1921 Thompson all pretty much the same or were there variations during production? What type of finish did the original parts have? I can't seem to find much on this subject. TIA.

PS Thanks for the pics Roger.

from the Big Picture point of view,

cut and thrust-wise.

I would love to add something of value here, but I have no knowledge of buffers in the Full-auto models.

Perhaps if we can get the folks who have 1921 Colts to send pictures of there buffer pilots parts in we could start collecting a small picture report of these things. I know John Jr gonna love this-adlake
