Here is my second attempt at posting pics of my homemade tommy gun. I made it out of plywood and it took two weekends, one for stain and paint, which was hard. it is a spyder imagine on the inside. It also has a homemade airthrough stock. please leave reviews if u want.

very very cool. I like that. I think that is sick looking. Props.
If you can't hack it, then I suggest you pack it!

It is a little rough around the edges, but for homemade that is a damn nice mod job, don't forget the front and rear iron sights! Also really digging the air-through stock.

^^^Agree completely. Especially about the air-though stock.
What kind of barrel is on there?

Thanks guys. I am not gonna put sights because it would bve useless with the hopper and stuff.. ;)
yeah, its a little rough, the plywood doesnt take a router well and i wasnt about to make the stock solid.
The barrel is just some cheap one with a homemade buzzle break to make it longer. It is suposed to look like an m4 style break....

The stock is hollow with an extra ten inches of macro line so if it leaks at the magazine, i just cut off a little and pull more from the stock. works great for quick fixes every so often. better than having to re macro the whole gun. check out my 30 and fifty cals i got more pics coming of them.

Looks good. Pictures are a little off. If you have, disregard following: Thompsons need a deep, shiny walnut colored stock. Wood stain, then clear varnish.

I just used a darker color stain. i got plenty of walnut laying around, but it is so much easier to work with plywood and i use the walnut to make amazing picture frames and little trick boxes. i like to do woodworking :o I also didnt want to make it shiny, just so the light wont reflex off of it as easy in the woods. There is no varnish because i already have scratched it up so i didnt want to waste my time. lol thanks you all!!

FirstTarget is right about the stock. Its not as much about having to be shiny....not high gloss anyway....But s slight glimmer would be fine and won't reflect enough light to give you away...even in 100% sunshine. The thing about the walnut is the appearance. What you have is pretty neat. I'm not trying to be overly critical...But it LOOKS like plywood! It has the wrong grain pattern, etc. So it looks a bit...off....for a Thompson, or any other gun.

The other concern I would have is that plywood does NOT hold up well when exposed to the elements. It also can start to split, etc. The wear and tear of running around, bouncing off the ground/walls and just general roughhousing is why hardwood is used in making gun stocks and handles in the first place. It can withstand all of the punishment. I'm not sure how the plywood will hold up.

If you DID do the stock from walnut, you could make it in sections the same way you did with the plywood. Sure, it will take more work because it is a harder material, and will require more care and patience, but it will also yield more satisfying results....and the guys will pee their pants and drool like a nerd seeing boobs.

Overall, I love your project! Unique approach, good execution. Looks good. If you do consider making a hardwood version, you've also gained invaluable experience.

Very good job for a homemade project. As pretaining to the wood hardware color, Everyone is right, it needs to be a deep walnut color.

Here is a pic of my real Thompson and 98C Thompson:

For whatever reason the parts on my 98C (which are real Thompson Parts) didnt come stained dark enough. When I do my 3rd revision to that marker I will be staining the parts.

And yes, I know my real Thompson looks funny with that 16 inch barrel. I will be starting the process of getting the license to own a "Short Barreled Rifle" which is what it will be considered once I get the actual 10.5 in. barrel.
