gijive Posted May 6, 2005 Report Share Posted May 6, 2005 Check out this unusual Hollywood (or at least I think it is Hollywood prop job) Thompson from an old gangster movie with old-time character actor Wallace Beery. You'd probably have to be born before 1960 to remember him. http://www.machinegunbooks.com/forums/invboard1_1_2/upload/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif Anyway, I wonder what the heck the contraption is over the top of the barrel. Too bad the picture is cropped and you can't see the end of the barrel. I am going to research this film and see if I can view it to see if the gun appears in the movie or if this was just a prop for a publicity shot. Anybody have any information on this addition or know what it is? I've never seen anything like it. http://members.aol.com/gijive/BeeryThompson.jpg A close up of the device sticking out of the actuator slot. http://members.aol.com/gijive/BeeryThompson1.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
