Thompson or M1 Carbine

Article about: Although an M1 Carbine would probably look better, and weigh a lot less on a display, the Thompson is the way I'd go - an M1 Carbine is worth 1/4 the cost of a .45 Tommy gun, IMO.........

    Go for the Tommy gun. After all, Sergeant Saunders really liked carrying his and Audie Murphy as a Corporal & Sergeant--carried one.

    But remember you can't fit a drum to an M1A1 Thompson......

    Id go for a M1 garand for a GI display if possible, but between the 2 at the same price, as Steve said Thompson its worth a LOT more. IMO

    Is there going to be a dummy incorporated in the display? Makes a difference to the weapon you choose.

    The Thompson is a mean looking hard ass gun which wouldn't look right on a department store reject mannequin with pouty lips and a pansy pose.
