Auto Ordnance introduces two new exciting looks to the company's line of semi-automatic Thompson rifles, historically referred to as the “Chicago Typewriter”.
The Thompson 1927A-1 semi-automatic carbine is now offered in a Titanium Gold finish and also a Polished Chrome. Either of these reproduction semi-auto carbines will make an impression on the shooting range.
These guns are offered in .45 ACP and have a 16.5-inch finned barrel (18 inches with compensator), with a 1:16-inch, right-hand twist. The frame is constructed in steel with either a Titanium Gold finish or a Polished Chrome finish. The gun weighs 13 pounds and has an overall length of 41 inches.
Other features include a pinned in front blade and an open rear adjustable sight. The stock is fixed and is made from luxurious American Walnut and has a vertical foregrip. These two new models each ship with one 50-round drum and one 20-round stick magazine. The magazines too are plated in either polished gold or chrome.
“The uniquely iconic look combined with the history of the ‘Tommy Gun’ have always had an extremely strong appeal among gun owners,” said Frank Harris, VP of Sales and Marketing, Kahr Firearms Group. “We introduced these at SHOT Show this year and people were lining up just to have their picture taken holding one of our new polished finish Thompsons. We really expect the gold and chrome finishes on the Thompson 1927A-1 to be popular with the gun community – especially among collectors.”
Both the Titanium Gold (Model Number T150DTG) and the Polished Chrome (model number T150DCR) carbines are shipped in a protective hard case which features both the distinctive Thompson logo and the words, “Chicago Typewriter”. Should one wish to truly capture the 1920s gangster era, an aftermarket violin case can be ordered for the Gold or Polished Chrome Tommy Gun. For a limited time only, the introductory MSRP is $2,963 for either the Polished Chrome or the Titanium Gold. The cost of the violin case is an additional $221.
