Brownells, Auto Ordnance and SilencerCo team up for the SilencerCo Summit Tommy Gun package, offering collectors a customized version of the 1930’s Chicago Typwriter.

The package pairs an Auto Ordnance Thompson SBR in .45 ACP with a SilencerCo Omega 45k suppressor, 50-round drum mag and 20-round stick mag. Additionally, the Brownells exclusive kit comes with two different foregrips and a violin case for a retro yet discrete means of carry.

Boasting an 11-inch barrel, the Tommy Gun measures 32-inches in overall length. Tipping scales at 10-pounds, the Thompson is configurable. Brownells says the design allows collectors to swap accessories to create either a 1928A-1 or WWII M1A look. For an even more compact style, the buttstock can be completely removed to reduce size.

Brownells said the package is made even sweeter with the SilencerCo can, pairing the historic firearm with a little modern flare.

“With the SilencerCo Tommy Gun Summit you get two things that go together naturally: the iconic ‘Tommy’ gun, famed in movies and Depression Era history, and a sound suppressor,” Brownells said in a statement. “Built around Auto Ordnance’s civilian-legal, semi-auto reproduction of the legendary Thompson Model 1928 .45 ACP submachine gun, this short-barreled rifle comes with a fully machined steel receiver and genuine American walnut furniture, just like the original.”

The entire package comes with a hefty price tag of $3,800; but the costs don’t stop there. Due to the short-barreled and suppressed nature of the Chicago Typewriter, consumers will need to drop extra coin on tax stamps and paperwork to be BATFE compliant.
