This is an excellent example of a M1927A1 Thompson semi-automatic as manufactured by the Auto-Ordnance Corp. in West Hurley, NY.

It has the standard Auto-Ordnance markings on both sides of the receiver with the left side marked "MODEL OF 1927A1". It has the correct style fixed front sight and folding adjustable rear sight, vertical walnut forearm, pistol grip and detachable buttstock. It comes with one 50 round "L" type drum magazines and a black plastic "Thompson" marked storage/carrying case.
