    The m2 is a undeserving forgotten Weapon , original Thompson replacement with contract for 164,000 to start . 400 where built when the cheaper m3 came along and cancelled m2 .
    Aberdeen proving grounds rated it best ever smg .
    Only two or three survive .
    So I built one semi of course
    No dimensioned blue prints so each part reverse engineered and blue print created

    Nice work!

    Looks like DMLS for the lower receiver and the section of the upper with the ejection port, yes?
