Has anyone made one? Has anyone thought about making one? Seems like it could be a possible Auto Ordinance project or something. I know this might sound incredibly sacrilegious but I've always wondered why someone doesn't slap some tacticool polymer on a Thompson .45 and make it modern ninja practical carbine. Think about it... it's a great platform... mags are available, people are always looking for a nice .45 acp carbine. Replace the wood furniture with a quad rail, Magpul grip, and a 6-position AR type stock, and you have at least a decent (if not ugly) carbine. The only downsides I can think of is that it'll make the Thompson purists go nuts, and it'll still probably be very heavy. Ok, it'll also still be comparatively expensive. But I bet it would be a great gun. Thoughts? Flame on?
