Length of pull can be adjusted! The stick mags run better than the drums do! It's calling your name!

If you pass on the Thompson Replica, you will never forgive yourself.  You will forever say "I could have had a Thompson" if I had only.  If you have the folding green in your sock drawer, or sufficient available limit on the Plastic Fantastic ............. GET THE THOMPSON <};~)

Never seen a picture of a Paratrooper or a Tanker with a Drum onna Thompson.  Sticks Rule.  Plus, I have personally had the experience of carrying a Thompson in anger.  A long time ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away.                       BUY.     THE.     THOMPSON.

Okay, the 1927 will accept drums as well as stick mags. Plus it has the finned barrel. And the Howell spring pack makes it so much smoother...

And don't believe anyone that tells you you have to shoot jacketed only. I was told you can't shoot cast bullets or you will lead the compensator. BS
PS also works great with Black MZ loaded at about 23 to 25gs and an unlubed cast bullet.

Oh by all means get the thing!

Remember, nobody lives forever, and the 1927 will outlast you by a long shot.
And if you get tired of lugging the beast around,  the way things are going, you can easily sell it for more than you paid!

I understand that! I lucked into my first one and had a trade gun ready to go, so it worked out. Good luck on the hunt!

Me too.
One day a friend told me that the LGS had one they had just taken in. I went in to see it, put a down payment on it and went home to get the trading stock.


I found out years later that the boss had been pi$$3d that the guy behind the counter had taken it in as he didn't figure they would ever be able to sell it. I bought it the same day.
