  1. Which Thompson for 1st machine gun?

  2. I've seen 2 nice examples sell in the last 12 months. You just have to keep looking. R/s, Hiller......................
  3. Owning M2HB

    I've owned an m2 for 20+ years. I can shoot it where I live on the back 40. I used to shoot it alot and have always enjoyed shooting it. I reload my own ammo and bought all my reloading stuff back in the day. And I bought LOTS of reloading supplies. Powder/primers/projo's. Less than a buck a round for me so cost is not an issue. I haven't shot the m2 in a few years now. Last few times I did shoot it my back would be sore for some days afterwards. The wieght of my mount/gun/ammo just puts to much strain on my back. I'm alot older now than when I first got the machine gun. So if you're thinking about getting one make sure your back is good because it is a bit of a job hauling all that stuff around. Here's Judy getting some trigger time. R/s, Hiller........................................

    Form four? How does it function? Mags? R/s, Hiller..................................
  10. I’ve reloaded 30-06 for the M1 Garand and know to be careful with certain powders as the op rod Can easily be damaged with improper Bullet weight/powder combinations. I’ve never heard anything about the m1918a2 bar. Does the bar have a weakness to some powder/Bullet combo’s? So far the machine gun has eaten everything I’ve loaded for it using imr4320 and h380 behind 147gr fmj’s. I’ve loaded a few with h450 54gr under a 147gr fmj. This recipe functions the weapon fine but sounds a bit odd. Round makes more of a crack as opposed to to the normal deeper sounding thud the gun usually makes. Primers look a bit flattened but still some rounding on the edges with no cratering. Am I using way to slow of a powder? I don’t want to damage the weapon or myself. My old speed manual lists h450 for 30-06 and gives data showing 58gr to 63gr with a 150gr fmj. My load is way under these figures so I think it’s safe. However I wanted to ask here to see if maybe I’m missing something. Better to be safe than sorry. R/s,Hiller....::::::
  11. Form4 transfer times

    form 4 8-28-20 submit 11-10-20 approval R/s, Hiller.............................
  12. Recently got my form 4 appoved for a m1918a2 royal typewriter bar. The weapon is in pieces, completely stripped apart. I've never put one together. I have built m14's, garands, m1 carbines, 1903a3's. ect. I've got multiple barrel/action wrenches. headspace guages, BAR books, ect... So I feel confident I can build this one. I thought I'd check here on the possibility some one here might have some experience with the BAR and offer their wisdom. Thanx, R/s, Hiller......................
  13. Transferale/PRE 86 New prices and some new guns

    Thompson pics please. R/s, Hiller........................
  14. ATF harassment

    I have people say to me often "I'd never own a full auto machine gun, the atf is always coming to your house and checking up on you and searching your house and blah,blah, blah....." I can't imagine this to be true as I've never heard of full auto owner's complaining nor have I experienced atf harassment but thought I'd ask other full auto owners. Thoughts??

  15. New 1928a1 owner

    Can someone point me in the right direction for info on maintenance, care and feeding of my new baby. Also if there are any really stupid things that New Thompson owners do that should be avoided, I’d like to know about them so I don’t do it. R/s, Hiller....................
