marty I sold mine last year.it was a great shooter never had a problem with it.
these really like cast loads and I shot a bunch of the 200 gr swc's thru mine.there wasn't a coke can that was safe in texas:D:D.I gave 800.00 otd for mine but I am sure they have gone up in price now.

I got to thinking that I have been gathering .45acp supply's for many years.It might be a good weapon to have since I have a lot of ammo.But only if they functioned reliable.

A friend of mine has a NFA Thompson, w/ a ton of rounds through it, never had a issue that wasn't his fault(improperly sized reload).

They are very very controlable during rapid fire, I've shot NFA Mac11 and the Thompson and it just stays right where you put it...the mac you have to let off just to see the target.

I own 2, an A1 Deluxe and the Tommy pistol. Both are great shooters. I've found they like FMJ 230gr ball ammo best but function well with hard cast ball. To be honest, they aren't something you'd ever take out hunting, they're just for fun shooting at the range. And yes, they are very accurate. I can walk a pop bottle up and over the top of a 14' earthen berm at 50yds with my A1.

I recently traded a VOlunteer Arms Command Mark 3. It's a Tommy Gun Clone made from sheet metal and. Uses grease gun mags. It's a pretty decent shooter for about half the price of the current Tommy Guns. It was a lot of fun to shoot, even for the ladies. Function was 100% with cheap WWB ammo. I really wish I still had it.:(
