Thank you...I think ?    something a tad unsettling about reaching Bucket list goal  :-\
Kinda like flying and arriving and they call it a Terminal  ::)
 
Anyway , I don't smoke (ever) don't drink , Wife won't let me chase women and I gave up Sport Car Club of America Racing
decades ago.... so aside my stint on "Miami Vice" TV show not withstanding ...I have no Vices

Except Gunoholic-ism   ;)

I need to find some West Hurley compatible  20 or 30 round stick Mags,  that should keep me occupied a bit

when planets align...do the deal !

There is no mount for a stock.... I imagine it would be drilled & tapped to receive the 2 screws of the A1

Interesting. Obviously I'm not super familiar with those. It actually looks like a lot of fun as-is.

I do have some experience with a few original Model 1921AC Thompsons owned by the agency I used to work for. Because of their antique status, they didn't come out very often, but I got to shoot one. I didn't actually shoot it with the buttstock removed, but I did handle it that way and dreamed of Chicago gangsters...

My take on it...the 27's had a removable stock , by WWII and the A1 the stock was screwed on ( a war time cost concern )
which also deleted the drum Mag mounts in leu of sticks.

AO (West Hurley) produced Model 1927A5 Semi Auto Thompson Pistol (mine)
 ( as does Karr ) a  model that is considered a pistol " 1927A-1, Deluxe Pistol "

Apparently. there is an adaptor to add the butt a to make an SBR
 
I'm just getting into to it as to options...I need some stick mags first ,  I may SBR it at some point , if the current Fed's don't lock it out  ::)

Well Poo.  Acquiring a Chicago Typewriter in the midst of a component shortage is most inopportune.  Just think, you'll have to host "reloading parties" to keep up with the thing   :o ::) 8)

Heh ! yeah but !  ::)

I just traded off the PPS-43 C (I had traded for)  ..the warm fuzzy novelty I felt had worn off ...part of that was feeding it
30 rounds a stick....

The difference here is THIS is something I wanted  since I was kid, it was on my WANT LIST ...
I have lots of  45 ACP already loaded , brass, bullets too.... Powder > Check...primers ?  Ok for while...

Dunno what the current piano players have in store for the next 4-6 years  :-\
