Hi,
I've just been looking through the posts for the Thompson trying to find some info on sling swivels. I notice there are loads of posts about Denix woodwork colour & other modifications members have done, so there must be loads of poeple who have found some to go on their Denix guns.The one I have has not got the front hand grip.
The only post I can see is where someone has used Enfield ones - is this still the only option or has anyone started to do repro ones & what other if any alternatives is there to the originals which I should imagine are few & far between,
Thanks in advance - Colyn

You can certainly buy original Thompson or Lee Enfield sling swivels.

They are easily found at shows or on the web.

Thanks for the replys so far - If anyone has a spare set that they want to sell that would be great
I have found some in the USA not sure if they will send to the UK (http://northridgeinc.com/store/index.cfm/c202/i1052 )
but I'll hang fire in case there's some available from forum members - Cheers Colyn
