|Then when the commies got their hands on some of them, they carved the beejeebers out of the grip frames and added a mag adapter for PPSh-41 banana mags, bushed the bolt faces to take the 7.63 x 25 rd., and installed the appropriate (.30 cal.) barrel.|
According to Hill: THOMPSON -- THE AMERICAN LEGEND, that conversion was a Lend-Lease item (or at least there was one very similar to that, since the accompanying photo shows a curved PPSh-41-type magazine) and delivered "in great numbers" to the Chinese.
Would someone know who made the kit and if it changed the parameters (weight, rate of fire especially) in any way? Many thanks!

Time to play "What's that caption?"
My vote is -
* I wish I had a Thompson, but all I could get is this Kahr sledgehammer

This poster in english;
"I'm a war hero and a worker hero"
But translated as a Thompson nut;
"in times of peace they take my Thompson and give me this damn moonie hoe"

|"And they shall beat their Thompsons into mattocks" (with apologies to Isaiah 2.4)|
Close but you must remember that Chinese is read from right to let so it really says "We make Thompsons from mattocks"
