As an aside I know of a National Guard Armory where they were M3A1's were in stock till 89.
Bob, you have a very nice colection, throw in a UD 42 and a Resing and about all the bases are covered.

UD42 would be cool but they are pretty scarce. As well as the Hyde 35, and the M2 Hyde (400 made).
The M3 does have a weak sear and rather wimpy spring...but they were not intended to last 60 years with heavy use. The Thompson and BAR (or most of JMB designs) are built to last a millennium
Thompsons have their problems, as any mechanical device can break that's why we all have spare parts!

As much as I would not spend 10K on one today. I'm really pissed about the one I lost out on in the late 80's. Damn small town politics.

Well, I'm off to the range to warm up the ole '21/28...gotta practice for the match on the 14th.
And I need all the practice I can get...well maybe not "need" but "want"!
