A.J.THOMAS 45

.........ANYONE KNOW OF ANY WRITTEN WORD ON THE THOMAS .45?

I FOUND A COUPLE OF REFERENCES OF IT IN SOME LATE 1970'S GUN DIGEST AS IT WAS BEING INTRO'D...DESCRIBED AS STRAIGHT BLOWBACK WITH SOME SLICK (READ THAT BLACK MAGIC) ENGINEERING...BUT NO ARTICLES ANYWHERE.

WHAT ABOUT ANY EXPERIENCES WITH ONE.......I'M A PART TIME 'SMITH AND I'VE DIFFICULTY FIGURING HOW IT WORKS...IF IT DOES....
WHATS THE MANUAL OF ARMS ON THIS PISTOL.....TO RUN THE SLIDE, ONE HAS TO RELEASE THE GRIP SAFETY TO WITHDRAW THE SLIDE-STOPS 'DOGS'...SEEMS A LITTLE UNSAFE TO TRY TO CHAMBER A ROUND WITHOUT A GRIP ON THE PISTOL.........I'M GOING TO WAIT.

PLEASE ADVISE

I own one and have a crappy photo of the owners manual.

The rear grip safety locks the slide,really just retards the slide , from opening. It's striker fired. The pull gets progressively heavier until the sear drops and the firing pin moves forward.

I always wanted to get a 4lb FP spring to see how it would work. Since the barrel is pinned in place it could be more accurate than most barrel flapper 45's.

I bought this one from Elite in florida in the 90's. Had it shipped to a store in NYC that used to be a dealer for AJ. He actually had a magazine for it. Gave it to me for $7 because he felt sorry for me :-)

Send me your e.mail I'll send you the manual as jpegs.
