        THOMPSON BARRELS

Thompson barrels have a unique chamber design. Standard .45 ACP chambering reamers cannot be used. The U.S. Army specified heat treated 4150 ordnance steel. Quality commercial barrels are usually made of the lesser grade 4140 steel which is not suitable for machine guns. Even worse are barrels made from 1137 screw machine steel. Making a new Thompson barrel to the original specifications is not commercially viable based on the quantity that can be sold. So, the only way to produce new finned barrels that meet the original specifications at a reasonable price is to fin and compensator thread new surplus WW2 U.S. Army M1 barrels.  That is what I do. I go the extra mile and grind the compensator threads. Grinding produces threads far superior to lathe-cut threads.

Unfortunately, since the Government has prohibited the importation of barrels with parts kits, people have started to manufacture Thompson barrels. The ones I have seen have oversize receiver threads with too narrow thread grooves and, it has been reported to me, that the headspace is incorrect. If you buy a parts kit that comes with a barrel that does not have a front sight PINNED to it, it is probably an aftermarket barrel. Ask who made the barrel and what are the numbers (There is more than one drawing for each model of barrel.) of the drawings that were used to manufacture the barrel. "Even though we advertise that our barrels are made to the original drawings and specifications, we don’t actually have the drawings and specifications but we do have a like new barrel that we copied." is not an acceptable response. Reverse engineering never produces correct parts. I doubt they even understand the headspace requirement of a Thompson barrel. The most expensive barrel you can buy is the one that does not work.
