Auto-Ordnance had a modernized variant of their classic Thompson SMG design on hand at the NRA Annual Meeting.
Billed as the Tactical Tommy Gun, the .45ACP-caliber carbine is semi-auto and uses a 16.5-inch barrel and adjustable M4-style buttstock and pistol grip to blend AR-15 stylings with the old Chicago Typewriter. The aluminum forearm includes numerous Magpul M-Lok slots for all of those accessories you always wanted to hang on a Thompson but shouldn’t. Unlike traditional Tommy guns that cock on the top, the new model is a side-cocker.
The Tactical Tommy Gun ships with a 50-round drum and one 20-round stick mag. The bad part is that the MSRP is $2,299.
