As recently requested, photos of my Deactivated Thompson M1928A1. This model of Thompson was widely used by the British Army in WW2 and were some of the first weapons to be sent to Britain by the U.S under the Lend Lease agreement in the early part of the war.
This particular gun was a part of the many shipments of arms to the former Soviet Union in WW2 and was kept in storage by them, until quite recently.
It has the basic Lyman 'battle sight' and unfinned barrel. the 50 round drum magazine is a reproduction, as real ones cost almost as much as a complete gun! I have managed to find a correct Kerr sling, which were supplied with the Thompson Sub Machine Carbine.
Enjoy!

A very nice "Tommy" you have there Dave!

I will see if I have any pictures of mine floating around, if not. I'll get on with taking a few. I think mine has a ladder site at the rear, and also came by way of Russia.

Apologies for missing this thread by the way, it just passed me by!

All the best,

Chris
