Thanks for the welcome Damon. It's new, ordered from a dealer that ordered it from a wholesaler. Is there any way of me fixing it if someone cocked it with the safety on? Or was it permanently damaged? I can't even take it apart. When I try and take it apart it only seperates about an inch and is still under spring tension. It just slams back together again.
Is there a serial number sequence where they made improvements on the gun?

Dep,

You can try holding the cocking knob all the way back and working the trigger to try to get the sear to release. If not you may have to just send it in. This is a VERY common problem and is not unheard of for a new gun to be lock up like this if the dealer or some customer who fondled it was not familiar with the gun cocked it with the safety on. I am not saying this is what happened...just not unheard of. Yet another reason to get a factory fresh gun...dosen't have these problems. My natural instinct is to leave the safety on untill I am ready to shoot but you have to go against your better judgement with the semi Thompson's. After getting it apart you will have to inspect the firing pin and sear for damage and replace/fit if necessary. Like I said this is a common problem.

Sorry but I am not aware of a production date or serial number where the improvements were implemented. Is the cocking knob rounded or the cheese grater type? We are working this on two posts...lets keep it to the other for neat housekeeping sake. Hope this helps.

Hi,

I am new here and have been spending a lot of time reading old post. I am in the market for a semi-auto and just wanted to see if there was an update on this.....it looks to have been around a year since an update.

Thanks

Eric
