TechSmith MFG. is really on a roll. They’re releasing new brace adapters for pistols faster than some obscure and amusing analogy I can’t come up with right now. Our resident analogist, Foghorn, is as missing as .308 is from Jeremy’s ammo stash, so click here if you still love .308.
Anyway, TechSmith’s newest creation is a brace adapter for the 10.5-inch barreled Auto Ordnance Thompson pistol and allows you to add a Tailhook MOD1 pistol brace. The new adapter is shipping now and will cost $125.
As you might be able to tell form the image above, the adapter is 3D-printed. Some of you may be turned off by 3D-printed parts, but I’ve used a variety of them and not one of them has ever failed me, even in well beyond normal use.
No word on the adaptor’s weight yet, but does it really matter? Tommy guns weigh almost as much as the pressure put on me to come up with pithy analogies, so the TechSmith adapter will be an afterthought.
Mounting the adapter requires drilling and tapping the receiver. That could turn off some potential buyers, but that’s a lot easier (and faster) than dealing with a Form 1.
I’m sure there are purists out there who would never brace a Tommy gun. I’m not one of them. If they’re such sticklers, they won’t buy a Thompson pistol in the first place. I like the idea and would brace a Tommy pistol without so much as a second thought.
I have a TechSmith MFG adapter on my B&T TP9 and like it so much it’s the reason I’ve kept the gun. I was looking at a Thompson rifle the other day thought that it’s just too big and heavy. A Thompson pistol, though, with a brace would be hard to resist.
Check it out here. Order before the end of the month and TechSmith will ship it for free.
