  8. Hello All: New Issue ! I have a M1 Thompson with a M1 bolt in it. It is Stamped M1 and a smaller A1 stamped next to it so that anyone can tell the A1 was added.Is this a M1 or a M1a1? I also own a M1a1 thompson with a M1 bolt in it. If I want to swap bolts, is there anything I should be concerned about? Thanks
  9. Hello All: I havent shot enough rounds for scoring purposes but as one who owns both a 1928a1 and a M1a1, I find the 28 with its weight and rate of fire is more controlleable than a m1a1. My Pact Timer is not back from being repaired but I plan to shoot both guns and report back here what the rates of fire are. Even though I havent scored my targets ; the ones that i shot with my 28 are definitely better. I also dont use the peep sight but use the little notch on the top of the sight. I would like to hear from all of you who have shot both the top cockers and side cockers what your take on this is. Thanks
  10. Hello all! David gave me permission to post an ad on this board. I promise I'll make whatever donation is normal for posting an ad.

  11. Thought this would be interesting to share. The Captain Miller Thompson from Steven Spielbergs Saving Private Ryan film will be up for grabs at UKs PropStore auction at the price of what a full auto Tommy will run you. It appears to have been converted from a real Thompson to fire blanks. Lots of photos available on their website. https://bit.ly/2kw8uTK
  12. Hello everyone, I'm interested in acquiring an M1A1 rear sight with the protective sides thats in good condition to match the Thompson its going on. Im fairly new to this board and would happily accept some advise on where to find one or who to speak to. If anyone has a rear sight for sale, please feel free to send me a message. Much appreciated!
  13. I've had a TM1 Thompson Carbine by Khar since 2016 and I only recently sent in a Form 1 to SBR it. The Form 1 is approved, but I still haven't gotten a barrel for it yet or figured out who I want to help with the barrel swap. I just had a quick question as to what barrels are compatible with it or which ones would be the best for an accurate Thompson M1A1 reproduction? I also thought I heard that Khar changed the threads on their barrels so that they will not work with USGI barrels. Is there a difference between a barrel for a semi-auto Thompson vs. a full-auto Thompson? Any help would be appreciated.
  14. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/781938891 Dont Know the Seller Nor the Gun.If its Mechanically sound, 10k is a bargain. Its not Original, Barrel is from a 28, Its been refinished and As TD pointed out to me the Outside of the Ejector looks like its gone. Still Awfully low priced for a Auto Ordnance WW2 Gun.
  15. How many m1/m1a1 owners here prefer the m1a1 bolt over the moving firing pin in the m1 bolt?
  16. I have been trouble shooting my M1 West Hurley for a while. The seller reported the gun was re-finished (parkerized and GI parts) in the 1990s by a smith named Gerald Macdonald of Selma AL. Supposedly ran perfectly, with the “Hurley bugs” worked out. Upon receiving the weapon I found all parts were GI except the barrel, upper, lower frame, and magazine catch. The gun suffers from fail to fire (light or no primer strikes) on occasion. This is worse with certain magazines. Semi mode suffers from these failures more often. Admittedly some of this could be from shooter inexperience with open bolt guns, but it seems to happen enough where I suspect the bolt is getting an abnormal amount of friction some where. I have been slowly replacing parts in an effort to find the problem. The gun came with a GI M1A1 savage bolt. A M1 bolt did not solve the problem. A NOS recoil spring (notably about an inch longer than what was in the gun) did not help. I replaced all the lower parts. The bolt used to get stuck forward in semi mode, a new rocker seemed to have fixed that issue (of note is the old rocker had a lot more “slop” to it – the old one was GI. The new one is more solid so the old must have been worn). I finally picked up a GI mag catch and had it parkerized to match the gun. I replaced the catch (and learned that catch spring is a pain to remove) and found the mags now sit higher in the lower, and the mags will not seat when the gun is assembled. The WH mag catch appears to have some filing around the catch protrusion so I suspect this was hand filed to make the mags seat reliable. Below I have included some recorded dimensions in hopes that someone with more experience could confirm if my GI mag catch is within tolerance. I think the problem might be the mag catch hole location in the WH lower. Last year while trouble shooting at a local shoot, board member “mnshooter” allowed me to try using the M1 complete GI lower from one of his guns. That lower functioned flawlessly with my WH upper (and the mags seated reliably). If anyone has a stripped GI M1 lower I would be interested in purchasing it. Sending to PK is on the radar if I can’t get this going on my own, but I think I am close to the remedy. Here are some pics of related dimensions, taken with a dial caliper (comparing WH to GI catch): http://i1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag143/kb0uxv/lower%20hole_zpsrolfhbl5.jpg http://i1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag143/kb0uxv/LATCHES_zpssdzha1q0.jpg http://i1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag143/kb0uxv/LATCHES3_zpsiawmekao.jpg http://i1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag143/kb0uxv/LATCHES2_zpsnbj5yevl.jpg
