Thompson Auto-Ordnance announced its Case Hardened Thompson is now available and shipping to collectors and Tommy Gun enthusiasts.
The Case Hardened Thompson delivers a .45 ACP design and all steel, 18-inch barrel in a 1927 Thompson configuration. The Thompson pairs a Walnut stock with blue steel and a swirling finish to create an artfully designed Thompson celebrating American creativity, according to Thompson Auto-Ordnance.
“When the original Thompson sub-machine gun was made, its design epitomized an era when firearms were works of art crafted in wood and steel,” the company said in a news release. “Auto-Ordnance has kept that tradition alive with its gorgeous blue steel, hard wood stocked Thompson carbines. Now we are taking the art of the Thompson to a new level with our new ‘Case Hardened’ Tommy Guns.”
Thompson Auto-Ordnance says the Case Hardened Thompson is a perfect complement to the case hardened Auto-Ordnance 1911, announced earlier in 2018. The Case Hardened Thompson ships with a 20-round stick magazine and features a MSRP of $1,797. The latest Thompson model can be nabbed by contacting a local firearms dealer.
