Specifically how it mounts and where.

Thanks

Sorry, no pic but there is nothing really to see except a small hole in the magazine latch with a metal thing in it.
You drill a hole in the rear grip under where the magazine latch checkered part is....where you push on the latch with your thumb.
The hole in the grip should line up with the hole in the magazine latch (you may need to add a hole to your latch if it does not have one).
Into the hole you press fit or thread in one of these self contained spring plungers:

The tip of the plunger goes into the hole in the latch, which locks the latch shut.
Push the plunger tip in with a bullet tip or other tool to release the latch.

And there is nothing internally that will interfere with the BB? Is this similar to the lanworld BB? As a former propmaster here in Hollywood this has been a back shelf project of mine for years. A live firing Thompson was the last piece of the puzzle.

Sorry for the big pic but it gives an idea as why im asking about how it mounts. The outer shrouds cover most of the Thompson.

The issue with Plunger type mag locks for the Thompson, is thay can be held open and a magazine installed. Thus creating an AW. The only way to hold our unit "Open" would be with a tool, thus you would be safe.

The plunger style can be defeated, and is thus not as safe as the Bullet Button TM.

I'll get you a picture asap.

In regards to the M41A pulse rifle...
I take it you haven't seen this yet. (http://www.max-11.com/TopSecret.html)

Thanks for the vid link. Im going for as close to screen accuracy as possible, thus the Thompson. I already have the Spas 12, Rem 870 parts, plus all the custom machined components to put it all together. This month a company finally released the aluminum shrouds. Now its a question if the BB will interfere.

It's going to look funky with a 16" barrel Thompson and a 18" barrel 870.

A deactivated 870 is inside the Spas cage. Yea, a 18 barrel would look horrible.
