Kind of hard to carry, let alone conceal.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

As a fairly recent initiate into the Cult of the 1911, I don’t think I have seniority to excommunicate other members who might purchase a monstrosity such as this. But to me, this item is heretical bordering on blasphemous.
Do you believe in unlikelihoods?

You should know better to ask for permission....especially since some of us can reap the benefits of you owning one.
...and you should probably buy two as it looks like it would take a while to reload. :smart:

Yes. We'll let you keep it in your possession, but all your guns and equipment belong to all of us, like in all socialist gun clubs!

I believe back in the 1950s, you could buy GI surplus 1911 drum mags through the mail. Or was that Luger...or both?

Would make a great addition to a Marlin Camp Carbine. Otherwise...

Or you could just figure out how to attach the drum of your Thompson to your 1911.
