Response to Re: The Thompson part deux

i see this a lot today... Tanker Garand, Tanker 98K... modern terms for usually modern fabrications. The Thompson's butt stock was removable with a push button release so, for vehicle use, you could remove the stock to make it more compact. But there was not a specific "tanker" nomenclature and the guns were no different than any other. I think the problem with this gun is that it is grossly underscale. I own a model 1921 and its large and very heavy. Fully loaded its about 20 something lbs. I'm not sure the model gun with the figure is proportioned that well either. There probably should be a bit more barrel protruding in front of the fore grip.
