There,s some real oddities among that displays, I,ve never seen a Cutts compensator on the muzzle of a Sten before???. That M35 is a nice one but that decal looks very "new"?. I remember reading somewhere that Fleshettes were also packed into air burst shells as well

Hi @Davejb,

I agree that compensator is very odd and it's not from a Thompson, but it looks close in design.

This photo shows the standard issue "Cutts Compensator" used on 1928A1's made by Savage and Auto Ordnance.

Well on the Mills it does say remove before firing, so it can only be for the cup discharger plus the base plate is there as well, so I would think it was a common practise to have these fitted at one time, and perhaps later the idea was scrapped, either way that is a rarity
