I wonder if someone could tell me if the 1928 finned barrel will work on the m1a1. I love the look of the finned barrel and was thinking about buying one. Thanks

Yes, they are completely interchangeable.

And if you want to shoot one, The Gun Store in Las Vegas has a rental M1A1 with a 28 finned barrel at 50 rounds/$25. Among their other rental guns are a Madsen with supressor, a wooden stock 9mm Uzi, and an MP5A2. May be cheaper rentals than at Knob Creek. Imagine, good, clean fun in Vegas!

Hey SecondAmend, i visited the Gun Store too! do they still have the mp40? i fired that M1A1 of course, it was fun (a little strange looking to me) but fun none the less! At the time that i visited, the Madsen was out for repairs or something like that. The MP5A2 disappointed me, it Jamed twice!

MP40, When I was there in late April they did not have the MP-40 available. I did not ask why. The HK MP5A2 worked great. In fact, the guy admonished me for doing a mag dump ("Just do 5 or 6 round bursts.").
