From myconfinedspace: 1928 Thompson

Thompson SMG.

45 ACP; 750 RPM

This model is made by Auto Ordinance and is the civilian model. Itís also a family heirloom of mine.

1928 model with the original case. The case is a newly made copy of the original with a royal purple interior as opposed to the standard red or blue velvet.

Yes, they are legal to own here in the US. For the time being.

Pricey as anything to shoot though. 45 ACP rounds are currently about $20 a box.

Also took nearly a year to clear all the proper ATF, Sheriff, and other paperwork to take possession. Definitely feels like something from days gone by. Weighs nearly 25 pounds loaded.

I just thought it was cool because it's a family heirloom. All I know about these guns could fill a thimble.

Its about a $15,000 family heirloom that takes a lot of paperwork and dedication to acquire!

And all the variants of the thompson look the same to me, aside from the front grip (flush with barrel or vertical handle).
