    Default 2nd Post and another question/problem

    New to Thompsons and am still having feeding issues. Cleaning the piece this morning and noticed the bolt looks odd to me.





    I'd expect the head of the bolt to be round, not with a "dent". Seems I saw post on a similar issue somewhere but I can't find it.


    I like the rifle but not too happy with the way it performs so far.

    My experience with Thompsons has been limited to shooting them, so I'd be of little help with your issue, but I think I found the posts that you were looking for:

    It reads to me that a new bolt from Kahr fixed that member's issue.

    It sure looks like some "quality" issues are there. Bolt in link looks like it was "Hammer" forged.

    Posted this issue on the machine gun forum also. Kahr responded to an e-mail asking to have the bolt returned to them for replacement. Hoping this corrects failure to feed issues but I'm not sure the bolt it the problem. Going to order a 20 round stick mag from WhataCountry and see if that helps.
