Here's a link to an Ebay item. My question is, weren't all the Thompsons used in "Windtalkers" all 1928's, not M1A1's??? This same guy has an FBP dummy he's calling an MP40 "used in Band of Brothers"...

Thanks,

Ron

I don't remember seeing even ONE M1 or M1A1 in Windtalkers, and I've seen the movie several times. Heck, even the pictures the guy included in his auction don't show an M1 or M1A1 being used. dry.gif

Looks like a standard M1A1 dummy made from a parts kit to me.

Amen to all replies, fellas. Thanks. It's also interesting to punch up "vintage" on the Ebay search line. You get like 1.5 million listings. Oy...
