To explain the angled rail..... Thompson foregrips aren't flat on the bottom.

Any one can make a square pump.. now angle it and match the rail to that angle so the whole thing is paralleled to each other and while your at it drill the mounting holes into the bottom angle.

Maybe off topic, but uh, if you ever get the chance to shoot a Thompson M1A1 DO IT! They are so choice....

Nice mods man, if you're looking for something other than flip-up sights then a good red dot is the way to go, magnification is kind of useless.

Thompsons are awesome to shoot. I couldn't keep more than 3 shots in a row on the paper targets.

Matt, you need to fire from the hip.

I got to run some rounds through a Thompson last April awesome stuff, I love the weight. A couple of the shells bounced off the wall of my shooting cubicle and burnt my hand. It was awesome.

Tacti-cool? No, tacti-awesome!



I might wind up adding a spacer to the T2W to drop it down another half an inch or so. I sight with my left eye, so right now I'm wrapping my chin over the stock's upper pipe to get the picture aligned. This might get tough with my I4's (still need to investigate).

Just wanted to mention that this marker was Paintball Photography's pic of the day today.

I got to unload several 50 round drums into an old school bus.
I still grin every time I think about doing this......................

Figured I'd update this with where the marker wound up. The only thing I'm still trying to sort out is the front sight; the shotgun sight is a little too low. I'm thinking about trying to get something 3d printed or convincing BOS to make his sight pins again...







Spec sheet:
- PPS Super Stocker P429 in matte nickel
- 12" .685 barrel, straight venting
- 15-round springfeed
- PPS 45 frame with Maggot delrin panels
- BigOldSkool pump with integrated rail, Magpul AFG2 mounted
- T2W stock with custom bracket (keeps the shoulder section low and tight)
- RTR Knuckle 12ie holder
- PPS extended feedplug and feed leash
- PPS sight hood, generic shotgun sight
- CCI bucket changer (dust black/gold)
- Brass hardware on the feedplug and springfeed follower
- Brass pump arm retention bolt (has threaded stoppers on both sides to stop the arm from popping off)
