I have one and love how soft is shoots. The trigger is shit, agree and will replace mine for an apex at some point, I also want a match barrel with compensator for 3gun. As to advantages over glock... it's called ergonomics... the glock is a solid gun but is like grabbing a 2x4, not my thing...
The 500 is no jake in the recoil department when shooting the heaviest loads, but it's not that bad. The grip is really well designed, which matters so much - had some fancy wood grips on Smith 629 (44 Mag) that made shooting that pretty awful, but it was no problem at all with the stock Pachmyrs. It does have a lot of energy, but he is shooting those melons from like five feet away....
There's a bunch of them on ebay. Be careful to make sure you get one that fits what barrel you have (factory or the 920 "bull pup" one). Those I think are Revolution stocks but just to an ebay search for 10/22 stock and see all the various ones that come up. Can grab these for between $150 and $190 depending on model.
Yah, in the bottom pic I have the 30rd stick. The sticks are the most reliable, but simply dumping a 50rd drum is incredible fun!
There are two common 'styles' of TSMG, the Model of 1928 as above, and the M1 style. The M1 has the actuator on the side rather than the top, and only has the horizontal foregrip. It was the 'simplfied' version created to meet demand during WWII, when the Model of 1928 style could not be produced fast enough. The M1 does not take a drum, while the 1928 takes either. While the gun itself is surprisingly heavy, with a full 50 rd drum it is really heavy, and with a full 100rd drum its ridiculous.
Thompsons are remarkably accurate, even with the 10" barrel on the Class III Thompsons, and are remarkably controllable in burst fire, unlike some fully automatic subguns. The modern replicas might be more accurate, as they have significantly longer barrels.
But aren't you in NJ or NY?
