    This gun is really old and there are alot of things I could have made better, like the stock connection and ram, but I guess its pretty good looking. I might make a newer version soon though.

    But now that I look at it there are many things I could improve.

    ones a WWI version with the charging handle on top and WWII is with on the side, the forward grip & drum mag are attachments, they can have a normal wooden block or handle.

    THe thompson never existed during WWI, the thompson was in developement during WWI and first came into production in 1921. You also cant attatch a forward grip to a WWII era Thompson.

    No. I was trying to explain to you that they are manufactured with or without a vertical grip, and you cannot attatch one to it later on, therefore it is not an attatchment.
