Even though the English language is the most widely spoken language in the world (Yes, I was surprised as well), it is a screwy one indeed. So many words have multiple meanings, which may confuse those new to the language. Not only that, but several words may be pronounced the same, but have both a different spelling and a different meaning. Good thing I mastered the language a long time ago.
Take bread and bred for example. Bread is a type of food while bred is the past tense of the verb breed, meaning "to produce offspring." They are not even remotely similar, yet they sound exactly the same when spoken.
Other words are spelled and pronounced exactly the same but hold multiple meanings, like the word "screw." Now, there are some meanings of the word that are not appropriate for discussion on this website, but that will not stop me from mentioning several of its other connotations. Many people may not know that a screw can be a type of propeller. It can also be used to refer to a prison guard. The meaning we most often associate with it, however, is that of the simple machine that converts rotational motion into linear motion by way of its helical grooves, more commonly known as threads. And that is exactly the meaning we are interested in today because Keepshooting.com now carries the Thompson buttstock screw, which is most definitely not a prison guard for the Thompson submachine gun.
The Thompson buttstock screw is a newly-manufactured flathead screw designed to mount a sling swivel onto the buttstock of a Thompson submachine gun. It has been manufactured to the original specifications and is an excellent spare part to keep on hand – just in case.
The Thompson is a firearm for which spare parts may often be hard to come by – especially smaller, arguably more insignificant parts like screws and washers. Pick up the Thompson buttstock screw today for the low price of $4.95.
Thompson Buttstock Screw
As noted, the Thompson buttstock screw is a small flathead screw designed to mount a sling swivel onto the buttstock of the rifle. Typically, you would find this screw and the sling swivel on a Thompson M1928A1, a World War II variant that not only included a provision for a sling but added a horizontal handguard. This reproduction screw, milled from steel, was manufactured to the original specifications and features a matte black finish.
Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, including smaller parts such as screws. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes necessary immediately.
It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of replacement parts for the Thompson submachine gun. Several parts are now readily available on our website at an affordable price. If you have any need for spare parts, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.
Perhaps your Thompson submachine gun does not have any sling swivels on it. This screw would be an excellent choice to mount one, should you find one. And, as noted, it never hurts to have spare parts on hand. Grab a Thompson buttstock screw today for $4.95 while you still can.
