    you probably need a class 3 stamp from the feds. Just like silencers/suppressors.

    You will NEVER get a Class 3 license AND a permit for New Jersy (assuming you need one for this weapon). The BATF is part of the Treasury Dept. and the outgoing Sectretary of the Treasury, Bill Simon couldn't. So he made his residence elsewhere and placed his company, dealing in Pacific rim companies elsewhere, denying New Jersy million of dollars in tax revenue.

    Now Mr Simon and his collection of automatic weapons was certainly no threat to anyone in the Garden State but the powers that be made their point and New Jersey suffered a revenuie loss and well as the loss of jobs Mr. Simons' company would have brought.

    Semi-auto you should be fine.

    They sell them all over the place in that config.

    Don't know about the magazine and your state may have limits.

    The thompson is legal in N.J., but the barrel has to be a certain length. The magazine has to be welded, so it can not be able to load more then ten rounds.An it has to be semi auto.The barrel length is much longer then the original length.

    Hank, I don't think the 10 round limit applies anymore, but you're right about the barrel length. I believe the drum magazine is still legal as long as the gun is strictly semi-auto, but I don't profess to be an expert on this gun.

    Glad to hear Mr. Simon re-located his company from an anti-gun state. Wish more gun related and other companies would do the same. Why furnish revenue to a state or local government that is working against our Second Amendment rights anyway?...Bill

    Don.....Is the "1927 Carbine" in question one manufactured by Colt or a modern reproduction with a 16" barrel manufactured by Numrich or Kahr?

    If I remember correctly, there are two different 1927 Thompsons. The recent one, with the abnormally-long barrel, is the 1927A1, and it is definitely a semi-auto weapon only.

    There was an original 1927, however, marketed as a semi-auto, which differed from the selective-fire versions only in some minor internal parts and which is readily converted to selective-fire. Its barrel is short enough to bring the NFA into play by itself, though, so its convertability is less significant.

    Suffice it to say that if you're asking about an original 1927, fugeddaboutit.

    The first, and REAL Model 1927's could be converted to full auto by using parts from the 1921's. The latest versions just used that number because it sounded neat.

    Check out the address above. All kind of models from the first 1919.

    I don't know about NJ. and the modern 1927A1.

    But I'm pretty sure you ain't NEVER going to have one of these in that state. LOL



    Sexy little thing isn't it?

    Or this one. See, there ARE other firearms out there besides our trap guns.

    To the libs, there is NO difference.
