The Denix Replica M1928 Thompson

I recently received one of the Denix (of Spain) replica's namely the M1928 Thompson SMG (as shown above with some Burma Campaign kit, for effect). For the price (which is low in comparison to a dated deac) I was very happy with it, after a little 'weathering', the addition of some sling swivels and a sling (its not a Thompson sling, I know) the overall look and feel is very good, ideal for public shows and events.
The weapon can't be stripped down but does cock and 'fire' the wood furniture is also of a good quality and finish. Denix also produce the M1A1 Thompson, Garand, Lee Enfield SMLE and there's talk of an MP40 in production! I've requested a Sten MkV but not heard anything yet, watch this space.
