Auto Ordnance Thompson M1 SBR'ed semi auto receiver built on a full auto frame. Modified semi-auto internals include sear block and new-build pawl (BHO catch) for clearance of the FA rocker. GI trigger and modified disconnector that reduced trigger creep substantially. Wood by Dan Block and the barrel by Paul Krogh.

Wow, that is awesome looking gun.
What color stain is on the stock? I would love to finish my FAL L1A1 wood furniture in that shade!
Congrats,

I believe the stain Dan used on this wood is:

AIR ART AVIATION Formula XIII - light brown with red overtone
It can be purchased at Brownells

Looks good! I just sent in a Form 1 to do the same to my M1.

Your Thompson looks awesome. Did you do the frame modifications or did you have it sent to someone else?

Makes me wish I had more money to start another project.

With the exception of the wood and barrel, I did all the modifications myself. I am presently working on a 1927 to do similar type modifications to make it look like a 1928A1. I'm nearly done with those. My big problem is getting a Form 1 with finger print and citizenship cards for the SBR. ( I started a topic there under Class III about this)

I took the M1 to the range last Saturday as I hadn't fired it since last year and before the modification. I ran 100 rds through it as fast as I could pull the trigger. It ran flawlessly. It turned alot of heads and I left with a big smile.
