Pk's New Tsmg Barrels
Posted 27 October 2005 - 01:31 AM
Turned out the old barrel chamber was badly worn, causing the light FP strikes, which the new barrel solved.
The barrel is a new production barrel by PK, (not Numrich), turned to match the finned original barrel profile exactly.
The nice, beautiful, clean shiny bore is impressive and indescribably better that the bore on the new paperweight sitting on my desk! The park job on the new barrel matched the receiver so close, that unless you knew the barrel was a replacement, you wouldn't know it.

I wonder if PK can modify the barrel with the thick flat fins to be thin and rounded.

Keep up the good work Paul.

I am very busy otherwise and have not been able to put the required effort into getting these ready for release, but I hope that by the first of the year they will be in stock in all standard configurations, and special orders easily accommodated.
Thanks for the interest.
PS Jim; they shoot great!

Accurate? i never thought of putting a TSMG on paper, as the shear number of bullets make up for the inherent inaccuracy of a rattlegun.
It has to be better than the ringed one that came off.

I got bored at 25 - 50 and 100 yards, started to shoot a 3/4" steel plate at 125 yards, you shoot wait a second and hear the Ting!
You just might be surprised at how accurate the Thompson really is.

Selector lever.... Set to semi...
What a novel concept!
Actually, other than an M-16, i just use trigger finger fire control and single/double tap and leave it in the FA mode on a slow firing gun like a '28 or Sten, or grease gun.
