Manufactured in the 1970s/1980s as part of the "A" suffix serial range, the Auto-Ordnance 1928 Thompson is virtually a perfect reproduction of the original vintage "Roaring Twenties" Tommy Gun. One of the signature weapons of the Prohibition Era, the Thompson was one of the great "heavy metal" submachine guns, operating semi or full automatic on an open bolt, fully machined with fine hardwood furniture; the later sheet metal guns may have had them beat for cost effectiveness but not for style. Folding ladder peep rear sight, with the signature Thompson-marked Cutts Compensator and cooling fins on the barrel, a set of contoured pistol grips, and a quick-detach buttstock. The trigger group is fitted with a set of selector and safety switches, and the receiver has the Auto-Ordnance patent info on the right and the model markings on the left. The magazine slot is configured for drum magazines and stick magazines. Internals are very close to the 1928 pattern, with an aftermarket oiler. A hand-numbered matching shipping box is included, along with a Type C 100-round drum magazine. Provenance: The Al Walker Collection
