Hey Tom,

Enjoy your semi auto Thompson. I purchased one from one of the board members a little less than a year ago and I had it re-done with a full auto frame for the bolt hold open and detachable buttstock, comp. mounted over the bbl for a total of 16.5" and a few other things that have been discussed in many other threads. (E-mail with any questions)

Have fun,

mine has a bolt hold open, and the finned barrel is 17 3/4" from reciever to end of the comp, unfortunatly i think the detatchable stock is a nogo in n.j.

Dan Block can make a fixed stock that resembles the '28 buttstock. It's much better looking than the funky one that comes on the semi's.

Still need a hold open lever put in still.
