Replica Thompson / 'Tommy Gun' Submachine Gun by Denix
Replica Thompson ‘Tommy Gun’ Submachine Gun by Denix
The famous Thompson Submachine Gun was designed by John Thompson in 1918 making its mark in popular imagination in use with both Gangsters and Law Enforcers during the Prohibition era.
In World War 2 the ‘Tommy Gun’ as it was often known, was popular with soldiers as a relatively compact automatic weapon with a hard hitting .45 round.
Sometimes seen with the forward pistol grip and large drum magazine, and also later versions with stick magazines only and a straight timber foregrip. During WW2 at least 1.5 million Thompson SMG’s were made and used widely by Allied Forces.
These weapons were famously used by the British Army and Commonwealth Forces, including the Australian Army in North Africa, Western Europe and in the Pacific. They are also famously associated with the US Army in WW2 including many famous Airborne and special units.
