    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    Rear man appears to have something attached the muzzle of his rifle, what is it?

    Yes I know this is the early version - I will have to contact S.A. to see if they will update the training info

    These look like ARVN troops ?

    Bill, Both the M1 and M1A1icon TSMG had a higher cyclic rate of fire more than that of the M1928A1. Even a
    waiver was issued by the War Dept in Dec 1942 concerning the M1 Thompson's cyclic rate which often
    exceeded 800 rpm being closer to 900 rpm

    Hmm, bit rusty. I guess I can take a couple off your hands, though. Save you any disposal fees.

    Other pic in this series also posted, we figured these were ARVN troops on exercise. Looks about right... As for the brine soaked T-Guns, let me go through them for a bit and I'll find something to resurrect. Just some glass beading and woodwork, maybe a new barrel. I've seen some pretty washed out barrels shoot OK for a sub gun. Maybe new springs...

    Regards, Jim
