Well, since I'm spending money on this gun like a freakin' madman, does anyone have any idea where I can get an original or repop Cover, Thompson Sub-Machine Gun Cal .45, No. D50268 (gun w/box mag attached), as shown on page 195 in Frank's first book?
Thanks,
Rob

I bought two reproductions from Pacific Canvas and Leather and was very happy. Can't find a link to them but I believe their email is:pacord2@msn.com Price was right too !!

I have one of both versions, the one shown on page 195 and the one shown on 196..... the differences are very subtle..... btaim I'm working on a gun right now that is coming with an original case so I'll have a extra that will probably be on the market. Don't lknow the condition or but I will probably sell it right to a board sponsor....

Chuck,
I tried the email address to Pacific, but it kicked back as a bad address. Do you have another one, or a website?

Rob,

Can't seem to find my brochure but their number is 760-868-3856. This is Pacific Time so call during normal hours for them. Don't make the mistake I did and call earlier...you will wake somebody up. Even so they were very helpful. Good Luck
