A sit down with a Navy overstamp Thompson submachine gun (VIDEO)

The good folks down at the VSO Gun Channel were able to evaluate a classic select-fire Chicago Typewriter dating to the Prohibition era.

Thanks to Steve, a recently retired Navy Veteran and Tommy gun expert/collector, they got to spend quality time with an M1921 Colt Thompson– the classic first model changed in 1928 to meet Navy specs– and got both a history lesson and some trigger time.

See if you can tell the difference between the 1921 and 1928 rate of fire and check out how much of a nightmare the drum mag was.
