Three weeks ago I bought a Thompson 1928A1 from a dealer in Lyon France. This was ex russian mil surplus which had been lend leased in ww2 by Uncle Sam. It's in good condition but has obviously seen quite a bit of service .
It was made in Bridgeport and is No. 440976. Can anyone help find its military history whilst it was in U.S. service please? Incidentally there are still some left, have a look at www.espfrance.com. the semi auto conversion is easily reversed on these and in fact I didn't have to as tolerance in one of the parts meant it still worked full auto when I switched it over,- turned a few heads down at the range.;
