Just finished my latest progect, a Thompson SMG, plans were from Grizzly Tools with a couple of modifications. I added the front grip and the flash supressor. I also created the look of screws using wooden plugs and cut a slot in the plug. The Drum magazine i hold in place with magnets. The bolt I used a piece of oak and knurled it with my metal lathe.
Thanks for looking.

Looks like something my son would be into making. I will have to make sure he sees it. Great job!

Be careful where you appear with it. Replica firearms have to have a red tip at the muzzle so they won’t be mistaken by a cop for a real firearm. I’d hate to hear you got shot by the law. Great job BTW.

Very cool Ray and very nicely done too. I still remember the one I used during WWII. Here is a pic of me and my Tommy gun with my first grownup girl friend in 1943/44. Quite a dish huh? I think it was the gun that impressed her.

Hi JamWhi, nope no shooting dowel pins, however I am thinking of restocking my Traditions inline muzzle loader with a similuar stock and using the drum as a speed loader.
