King Arms Thompson

Postby Iceman » Wed Feb 20, 2019 3:55 pm

Hi,

Found a M1928 one for sale for 100€, supposedly they’re good? This one has the full auto not working, never heard of auto missing, it’s usually the semi.

Mods, didn’t find any threads that are not a million years old, sorry.
Why do you always carry that umbrella?
-Bad memory. Never could remember the password. Knew no Jerry would carry one. Had to prove I was an Englishman, you see.

Found the culprit. This part seems to be broken. Anyone got a name for this or a pic how it's supposed to look like?

Cheers. That’s what it is. Problem was it only shot semi-auto.

To get a new part, if it’s not possible to make one or repair your one, look on “abz airsoft repair” in the USA.
I have bought from there before, not cheap but normally get good results.
