Glad to know you are happy with the parts that you received.
The deal my Mail Order Supervisor worked with FedEx is pretty nice.
Most orders get shipped 2nd day with no additional shipping cost to the customer.
The mail order people have set the goal to get orders shipped out next day.
It makes the first day of the week VERY busy!

I wish we had something on the web site you wanted to trade for the MP-44 magazines!

Hi Richard - I cannot PM you - but you need to reverse the pictures of Thompson ejectors on your website.
The 1928 is the long one. (has to go through the receiver at an angle)
The M1 is the short one. (comes in through the flat side)

Need to swap out this ejector - what's amusing is that quite a few thousand dollars worth of gun revolves around a $9 part, lol.

Thank you for letting me know.
I have corrected both the listings.
Curious that we have sold over 30 of each part and apparently not one of these was returned!

I have PM's disabled on every forum where I am a member because I missed CS problems that were PM'd to me.

I acquired a Thompson M1 or M1A1 bolt just by chance. I need to see which one it is, but I have not seen them for sale and do not know the value. I've only dealt with 1928A1 parts. Anyone know what the M1 and M1A1 bolts sell for? It's stripped, I think, but NOS.

Rollin, The M1A1 bolt has 2 parts...the bolt and the extractor. The M1 bolt has the bolt body, extractor, firing pin, firing pin spring, hammer and hammer pin for a total of 6 parts.
Here's an example of just the M1A1 Bolt face. http://cdn2.armslist.com/sites/armslist/uploads/posts/2012/01/23/283885_02_thompson_sub_machine_gun_bolts_640.jpg

And these are the parts that make up the original M1 style ...other than the bolt body itself.

I hope life is treating you well my friend...life gets stranger every day.

Thanks, my friend. All is good here, generally speaking. But yes, life is getting interesting at times. I even had a guy ask me about a Dual Feed build. (It's still all your fault!) ;)

I appreciate the info. I had the general knowledge about the fixed firing pin in the bolt face on the M1A1, I just needed to get the bolt out and look. But now I have the full picture on the complete assemblies and that helps. What I have is an NOS M1A1 bolt, which I have no expectation of needing. I have a running 1928A1 postie on a Savage kit. Given the price of TSMG kits these days, I have no intentions of doing an M1/M1A1 build. It seems the 1928 series parts are far more common and less expensive. So, I'll figure out what the bolt is worth and maybe put it up for sale someday.

Thanks again, and hope all is well in your neck of the woods!

Indeed, BFF, you are well invested there! My postie 1928A1 is, as I think you know, built on a Doug Richardson Ultimax receiver blank. I put a vertical fore end on it because it is better for shooting and, well, it looks more cool, lol. While I also installed the Lyman sight, in practice I can see why they went to something simpler. It's really overkill I think, though it adds value and is does look good.

Yes, I thought I had made the mistake, so I posted the issue with photos on the Machinegunboards Thompson forum and was informed about the reversed images on your site.

It's all good, we'll get it resolved, otherwise it was awesome service and I'm very happy.
