The Thompson is still in Dennis Todd's hands. I left him a message today asking what the status was.

And I was talking to Howard about the 1919...

That's a beautiful BM59!
You going to use the Cobray for competition?
Congratulations.

Unfortunately, there aren't any local subgun competitions, though I've been thinking about starting one up. I'll get the usual mods to make the M11 more useful and see where it goes.

Asmodeous....

Hows the flame and percussion of that little fire breather ?


Edited to say: I just realized I should be more specific as you have two "little fire breathers" in the pictures ! I mean the '16 with the 7 1/2"(?) upper.

Percussion is noticible; flash isn't too bad. Biggest surprise is that it runs flawlessly with the upper (a 7.5" Model 1 pistol upper).

Well, I bought a few guns; total cost would have probably bought a new Corvette.

This was part of the original batch, too.



And given what Reisings have been advertised for lately, I picked up another one over the weekend, minty, with a 3 digit serial number (The pictured one has a 6 digit serial), for just a little more than I paid for the first one.
