Pimp your Thompson

And I thought fitting a SA-80 sling was non-obvious - got myself a repro WWII Kerr Nobuckl canvas sling off eBay for the Thompson. Had to stare at two photos and a page from a US Army manual to figure out how to fit it. Thank God for Google.

Just slightly worried - between the Thompson and the AK-47 (got a canvas/leather sling for that too!), my AEG collection's taking a turn towards the retro... Even more worrying, have indeed ordered a VC/NVA cotton AK chest mag rig! Shame it won't arrive in time for this weekend's trip to Ultimate :-( Still, the AK mags I bought off a chap on Airsoft Community arrived as I was leaving this morning :-)

Which reminds me: still no sign of the Mauser stock/holster. Time to give Keith another prod...

Oh well, off to meet pinkdormouse for a drink. By 'Eck, do I need one...

And a jolly good evening it was too. Thanks for that.

Having just started reading Harry's Game, does the AK47 sling allow one to conceal said weapon under a mac?

Hey, likewise!

OK, caveats:
Not read Harry's Game (really should!) and it's been a long time since I saw it on TV.
My AK-47 is a full stock model (see below)
My sling is a conventional 2-point one (it might be possible to do more with modern, exotic 1 or 3 point slings but I believe Harry's Game predates those)

But...
Assuming it's a folding stock model, then, yes, it is probably possible to sling it over one shoulder and conceal it under a coat (butt of a full stock version would be sticking up out back!). But it'd have to be a pretty baggy one. Shades of Highlander!

Hmm... that wasn't the icon I meant to use...
