I know there was a thread on the positioning of the sling swivels on a TSMG. B****r if I can find it, and I even contributed to it... My query is did the TSMG come with a US swivel on the butt, and the SMLE swivel was added to the front grip OR were they shipped without any swivels and both swivels were the SMLE type? Thanks.

Ooh ta. Yes, the first link is the one I tried to find. The top photo shows both US sling swivels., so I may not be far off having the Thompson swivel on the butt and the SMLE swivel on the fore-grip. Thanks.
