Much obliged!I see so pretty close yours too then, yes those are the exterior measurements
My replica is pretty much spot on the original Thompson and if fits very well I must say
Here is a manufacture label and the case before converting it
Thanks again, really appriciate it!
Unfortunately, due to legal reasons regarding what can and can't be owned without special permission in the US, the modern reproduction Thompsons are longer than the real ones from the 1920's-1940's. To own one that matches the original specs would mean licensing/background checks/tax stamps as a short barrel rifle (not to mention it's an automatic, meaning another special license and making it super expensive to buy in the first place). Such are the issues with US Federal firearms laws...
