I have a co-worker who's looking for mags for a Thompson SMG. Are there any to avoid, for reasons such as the new semi-auto mags don't work in original guns, or just crap manufacturers?

Saw a fair number on Gunbroker - anyone out there selling them in quantity? Right now he's just looking for a couple.

Thanks

Functionally they are all the same with the exception of the modern Kahr arms manufactured ones for their semi autos. Those will not work in SMG

The patent date mags are twenty rounders that command a premium like $90 each in good shape. Like all original Thompson mags they are preban but most free staters won't send them to Mass. There were so many surplus mags no one ever bothered to make them after the war.

I haven't seen them at Sarco or the like recently. I have some new in cosmoline/grease cardboard wrap never used and am willing to sell a few of them to anyone interested.
