Lead bullets and the Cutts compenstor
« on: January 12, 2012, 08:11:58 AM »
How much of a problem would lead slugs be when fired through the Cutts comensator?

I ask this because of the ranges where jacked slugs are not allowed.

Thanks

It isn't.

The bullet doesn't actually touch the compensator. I shoot a few jacketed bullets through mine, but I mostly shoot all lead.

Thanks.

This is good to know as I'm getting ready to add a 1927a1 to my colelction and see if there is enough interest in this area.

Thanks again.

Mine has never seen anything but lead and there is no sign of lead buildup anywhere.

I've shot lead in mine and have never had any build up on the compensator.

Thanks for the additional information.  I'm working on starting a Club here in Indiana and have a range in mind that should be perfect for hosting the Capers.  The do not allow FMJ but do  allow full auto.

I'll be ordering my Thompson 1927a1 soon, the T1B50D.

i own a 1928 a-1. mine is a real tommy gun. when i got it, the guy who owned it had shot a lot of lead ammo threw it on full auto. i had some lead build up on the compensator vents. i removed it and was suprised to find it was loaded with lead on the inside. it took some really heavy cleaning with a brass brush to clean it out. since then i have only used jacketed 45 acp and have had no build up of lead. i don't know what kind of lead he used. soft or hard. nor  do i know how well he cleaned his gun after use.  kurt250
