Thompson 30 + 1 45ACP Semi-Automatic w/Blue Steel Barrel & A
[TM1]
$963.00
by Joe T Date Added: Saturday 19 January, 2013
Bought the gun as a collector piece and to fire at the range. Overall fit and finish were very good. This gun is solid and very heavy.

Went to range to fire the gun. Loaded mag with 230g ball and inserted the clip, racked the bolt and went to put the safety to fire. Safety lever would not budge. Come to find out that chambering a round with the safety on will lock up or damage the gun, making it inoperable. It is now at a gunsmith waiting to be fixed. I could not field strip it so I am hoping he can get this working.

Overall I am not happy with the gun, as I would think a gun used in WW2 would be a little more foolproof. It's my fault for assuming that and for not reading the part of the manual warning not to do this. I've owned and shot dozens of guns and have never run across something like this causing such a failure. My FNAR I bought with the Thompson is flawless and can be chambered with or without the safety on just like every other gun I've ever shot or owned.

Would not recommend and I am wondering just how fragile this piece is.
