I'm already in enough trouble! Put away a Minimum of $2000.00. Estimate around March/April. Sorry, but this is all the information that I can add right now....I'm sure within the coming weeks/months more info will be shared, either by myself or Damon.

Guys...its killing me too! I want to blurt it out as bad as Devlin but need to maintain confidentiallity...to many spies! ph34r.gif There is nothing concrete as of now anyway. It is a waiting game and we are holding our breath to hear what goes down. When it all goes from concept into reality and we have something concrete to report...will tell all with much enthusiasm. Untill then, we will just have to entertain ourselves by teasing you all with it! nutkick.gif

Patience.

I see … That’s cool, I can live with those answers and I can be patience. I understand Tommygunner’s and Lionhart’s post. April , March or May, that’s a few months away and a few travel stops for me. Knob Creek – NRA show, so, I’ll sit back and wait and see.

I wish both of the best of luck on your project and can’t wait to see and hear about it.

Oh, one more question ( it’s a easy one, I think ) will we hear of this concept going to reality (I hope), will we hear it here first on this forum? And, if you can’t answer it that’s fine too, I understand.

The best thing about it, is that you both seem very excited the idea ( of whatever it is )

Drum roll …… please (man, that’s going to be a long drum roll)

I'm going to catch hell for this, but here it goes. What follows is only a brief description. Specific details cannot be disclosed.

Entirely NEW Semi-Automatic M1928 Thompson Carbine, not produced by Karh. Will feature an Original Height Receiver, unlike the Numrich/Karh Version. Bolt Assembly will consist of using an Original Actuator/Bolt/Recoil Spring/ETC, and will fire from the Closed Bolt position. Since the Receiver will be of the standard size, no need to either use a Modified Mag, or Catch. Trigger Housing will also incorporate Original TSMG Parts. With the exception of a 16" Barrel, this Firearm will appear exactly like the FA. There will be no comparison between the reliability of this new Model, and the Numrich/Karh Guns!

Just a few clues! unsure.gif

Oh yeah...the recievers will be available for purchase and the designs and approval letter will be available to the public. I have agreed to post them on my site for all to use! Can't wait!

TommyGunner, is there any chance of an A5-style "pistol" version? Seems with a few of the guys here saying they miss their A5's, and me being too young before That Damn Ban went into effect (only 14 then), this might be an opportunity.

Merry Christmas, y'all.

I got to thinking about this old post from a couple of months ago. Is this still in the works? Any updates?

YES, it's most defiantly in the works, and oddly enough, not by just one entity either! I guess we'll see who come's out with one faster. From what I hear, one is currently with ATF for examination. These things do take time. I'm sure by years end (Hopefully not that long though) more information will become available. Once I hear more, I'll post it. As of late, haven't gotten to much new info on these New Carbines.

My understanding is that most all of the full auto parts are used on at least one of the designs submitted...like Devlin said.

Phil, as far as I'm aware, out of the 3 designs, one individual has submitted an example to the ATF. Just awaiting word to see if it has met with their approval.

Nedry...sorry I missed your post.

Have not heard anything about a pistol version. I will ask next time around.

Unfortunately, I haven't heard anything new. However, it appears that Bob at PhiOrd from his comments on other threads, is considering producing better quality Semi-Auto Receiver's.

ronterry: Believe it or not, I ENVY you!!!!! I can't get my 1927A1 KAHR to cock or even take it apart to see what's wrong (and it's brand new). At least you can get yours to go BANG once in a while sad.gif
Hmmmm....the magazine writeups I read they said Kahr IMPROVED the quality of the semi-autos. I would hate to see what they were like BEFORE Kahr bought them out.

Depuy,

Welcome to the board! When you say the gun is new...is it factory fresh or a new gun that was purchased through a dealer or distributor that could have been stored for a while and may not have the latest improvments. Just a thought...could the gun have been cocked with the safety on? This could cause it to lock together, unable to cock.

Best,
Damon
