    So, the wife and I were watching this really corny scifi movie tonight "Zone Troopers" set in WWII, and saw a rifle/carbine type weapon that I had never seen before.

    They had M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, Thompson M1A1, and this:

    Or at least I think thats what it was.
    Made by Thompson, .30 cal carbine.
    Anyone else seen this movie?
    The character Mittens was using it.

    Something I had not seen before - kinda interesting...

    oh - anyone ever notice in one of the firefight scenes in Tears of the Sun that they have either flipped the film or they have the only LH AK I've ever seen. Kinda interesting when your brain goes - wha, what - an AK that ejects to the left?

    Flipping the film is an old movie trick...it's one of the reasons that the old U-boats (in movies) had numbers like 101 or 808, 818, etc. They could shoot one scene and use it twice...

    I was thinking it looked like a cross-breed of a Tommy-Gun, MG42, and an Stg44... Low and behold, Wiki mentions all three.
