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.  Each gun a hand machined example of American ingenuity and creativity. 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.

This time honored tradition of working steel produces distinct and unique patterns of color long sought after by firearms aficionados. The Auto-Ordnance “Case Hardened” Tommy Guns are each a work of art, covered in a beautiful, swirling finish. Beneath the colorful surface is an all steel, 18” barreled, 1927 pattern Thompson, chambered in powerful .45 ACP. The stock, forearm, and grip are Walnut. 

While every Auto-Ordnance Thompson is made to replicate the look of the original guns, they are also equipped with a precisely machined barrel. This guarantees that they may look like an original Tommy Gun, but they will shoot with a level of accuracy the originals could not match.  The Auto-Ordnance “Case Hardened” Thompson gives today’s shooter a chance to own a beautifully finished piece of American military history, and experience legendary shooting performance with every trip to the range!

Each custom firearm is a unique work of art containing hand created content.  As a result, no two firearms are exactly alike, and color may slightly vary between individual pieces.  Final products may not exactly match depictions in advertisements.
All Thompson 1927A-1 rifles and pistols now ship with a squared style bolt handle.
