IMO semi versions of smgs with 16+ bbl look ridiculous.
I have the new Auto Ordnance Tommy. Great gun no problems
Unless you are going to spend $25-30k on an original (good luck) definitely get a newer Auto-Ordnance version. The version from West Hurley, NY made during the 70's SUCK!!
Magazines need to be modified slightly to fit.
Get the steel receiver one. Heard alloy ones wear out quick in comparison to steel ones (had a buddy have his reciever replaced twice due to abnormal wear of alloy).
I got the military one (M1), and the manual indicates that it doesn't accept drum magazines. In any case the pre-ban drums are very expensive and the MA versions of the drums only hold 10 rounds.
I was under the impression that the pistol versions are not set up to accept a stock.
For many of us, having the 16" barrel ruins the visual appeal. The Tommy Gun was designed with a 10.5" barrel. That's one of the reasons that I haven't ended up with one yet. The wife knows that as soon as I've got one, I'm going to SBR it!
