Son of a gun, my new 1927-A1 Deluxe is one heavy piece of equipment. Need to check on getting this thing SBR-ed and see if it helps the weight issue. Other than being heavy, it is one heck of a thumper. Met a guy at the range today and he just kept saying how sweet of a hog gun it would be. Loaded him a 30 rd stick and turned him loose with it. He never said a thing about the weight, just smiled wide and thanked me for the opportunity to shoot one.

What is that? I'm not familiar with any U.S. military firearm bearing that designation.

Is it a variant of the old Thompson submachinegun?

It's a bit heavy to consider it for hunting. Going SBR well help but the receiver is the bulk of the weight. I've got the paper work filled out to SBR mine but I always find something else to spend that tax money on.

They are a fantastic range toy and would be good for HD with a short barrel.

Madcratebuilder, how is the fit and finish of your rear pistol grip at the trigger guard? Mine has two exposed sharp edges of the trigger guard at the grip. Just wondering if this is common.

My rear grip is a hair proud on the sides and flush at the rear and front area of the trigger guard.

I can see that would be uncomfortable with the edges of the trigger guard exposed. E-mail Auto-Ordnance and see if they well send you another grip to try. Egunparts may have grips listed.

Mad, fixing to go to their website to see what they say. Thank you for the mind kick.

People are surprised at how heavy a Thompson gun is, whether an original full auto or a semi.

In the movies and TV you see skinny actors and women actresses waving one around like it weighs nothing. That's because those guns are made of rubber or plastic and in fact, weigh nothing.

The real guns are made of solid milled steel and American walnut. The receiver and trigger group are massive steel blocks.

Makes me wonder how small Bonnie Parker really was? Safe to say she was not a weak woman.
