Love the look of these, Makes me think back to the film "Kelly's Heroes"
Those things climb up on you if you use a long burst.
A nice weapon. They are legal to own in the USA without a class 3 license as an antique. IF you can Find one.
British used one. I would say, looking at the sling swivels.
Early examples of the Thompson M1928 were supplied to British forces from the leftover stock from the original production run in the 1920s-'Gangster style' with the 50 round drums and pistol grip forestocks-early experience with it showed the rounds rattled too loudly in the drum mag for night patrols-were also heavy and expensive to make so the box mags became standard issue-there's also a well known photo of Winston Churchill handling one looking like a 'hood' with his pin stripe suit, bowler hat and cigar!http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/...9376846538.jpg
the vertical grip is for sale on ebay now, is there a reason you sell it? as its original to the gun, unless someone is using your images from this post for the listing
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
These "Tommyguns" have ALWAYS made me drool. They are extremely decorative.
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
