    I wanted one. That's the only justification I can give for buying this. But, with 50 rounds of 230gr. 45 ACP, it should make for one heck of a house clearing gun.









    Model 1927A1/T150D. Came with the hard case, 1-50 round drum and 1-30 round stick magazine. I'm going to have to start lifting weights, though. Empty weight is listed as 13#. I weighed it with a fully loaded 50 round drum magazines and it tips the scales right at 17#. Really makes you appreciate an AR carbine at about 7#. Trigger's terrible, sights are worse and pulling the bolt back is an experience all to itself, but it's a Thompson. Nothing more to say so go ahead and have at me for wasting money on something like this while I drool all over it and try to wipe the smile off my face.


    BTW, if anyone is aware of any forums dedicated to these critters, I'd appreciate a link. The only one I've found so far is here.

    That is great!! You'll get no negative waves from me on that purchase.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Pretty, I want one.

    Hey, it's lighter than a M-249 SAW, and still cooler in my book.

    That's awesome.

    And on a side note: Did you shoot that with a Chroma background?

    Yeah they are some heavy little guns.

    Mine is a bit lighter I beleive as I have the copy of the military version.

    Considering the design and original purpose the sights are not too shabby, but at least with mine, the gun is more accurate than the sights allow for.

    As for the bolt. http://www.tommygunshop.com/cgi-bin/parts.asp Item number four will provide a great help to you in that department.

    Also, some do not like to feed aluminum cased rounds (Blazer?) and hollowpoints.

    Great gun!

    $1216.00 total and he delivered it to my house. Can't beat that.

    No, just masked it out -- quickly. That's why some of the edges are a little rough. Next time I have my studio lights and backdrop set up, I'm going to re-shoot all of my firearms on a chroma backdrop, but for a quick shot it was too much trouble to set up.

    Can you tell me what item you're talking about? Each time I try to go to the link you posted, it parses back to
    Please select item and doesn't point to a specific item. If you're talking about this, I've already spied it but 80 bucks for 30.00 worth of parts seems a bit excessive. But, I may break down anyway.

    It is an extended bolt handle. Helps you get a far better grip on the action, instead of one or two fingers.

    O.K., that's why I couldn't find it. The extended handle is only for the TM1 (side bolt handle) guns. Mine is a T1 (top bolt handle). The extended bolt handle for the TM1 would totally block the view of the front sight on a T1. Mine uses this bolt handle which has a large U shaped groove through the center of it so that the front sight can still be seen.
