Thompson Submachine Gun History
The wars of the twentieth century, especially those of the second half, are generally referred to as the Banana Wars. It is also known as the Banana Wars. The term Banana Wars is a reference to the fact that the countries engaged in the war were predominantly banana republics. The term came from the fact that the fruit, bananas, were the only export from these countries in large quantities, and therefore became their principal source of income and their only exportable commodity.
The Malayan Emergency was the first full-scale conventional war fought by British forces in Southeast Asia following the outbreak of the Second World War. The Korean War began when North Korea invaded South Korea and China entered the war on the side of the South. The Vietnam War, also known as the American War, lasted from the start of the First Indochina War in 1945 to the fall of Saigon to the communists in
The Indonesia–Malaysia confrontation, known also as the Confrontation, was a border conflict that took place between Indonesia and Malaysia since 1958
The Iraqi War of 1990–91 was the military phase of the Gulf War of 1991, during which Iraq invaded Kuwait.
The M1911A1 pistol is the most famous of the American submachine guns. It was originally adopted in 1911 and is commonly called the “Tommygun” because it was used during World War I by the US Army’s Signal Corps. However, it was more widely known for its use by criminals after it was reissued to the general public in the early 1960s.
Thompson machineguns were a popular choice for military snipers. But, they didn’t see widespread use in the Banana Wars, the Irish Republican Army, the Republic of China, or the FBI (following the Kansas City Massacre). The Thompson saw early use by the United States Marine Corps during the Banana Wars, the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Irish Republican Army, and the Republic of China.
Blish’s invention allowed the soldier to safely fire a new type of rifle, as he no longer had to pull back on the stock and manually load and fire the weapon. Thompson used a spring-powered action similar to that of a typical revolver. This design is known as the Thompson machine gun. Sentence: The Blish Lock was the first practical method of repeating rifle that could be reloaded in under a minute without a special tool, while remaining safe and accurate at firing.
While it was patented in 1915, it was not put into production until 1916. Rewrite: The Blish Lock became a great success for its ability to easily reload the weapon within seconds without a lot of time or effort. The first Blish Lock rifle had a 1/4-turn bolt for each round, but the next model (which used the same basic design) had a one-quarter turn bolt that reloaded six rounds per minute. The Blish Lock was eventually adopted by the U.S. Army in 1917 for use on light machine guns and trench mortars.
Ryan and a number of associates formed the Auto-Ordnance Company in 1916 in order to pursue further development of the Auto-Ordnance rifle. The Thompson was primarily developed by the Toledo Arms Company in Cleveland, Ohio. The principal designers of the Auto-Ordnance Model 21 were Theodore H. Eickhoff, Oscar V. Payne, and George E. Goll. By 1917, the limits of the Blish Lock were discovered, and, rather than the firearm working as a locked breech, the weapon was instead designed to function as a friction-delayed blowback action. The weapon was manufactured at the Auto-Ordnance Company in Bridgeport, Connecticut and is still produced there today.
It has come to light that the current weapon is a bit lacking in both firepower and ease of use. In the present day, most people have a variety of guns available to them that would work just as well as the original Thompson. For instance, the 9mm Glock handgun is a very popular caliber for home defense due to its size, power and versatility. The Colt 45 is an even more powerful.45 caliber handgun that works like the Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver. Many consider the Beretta M9 to be the best combat pistol of all.
The project was titled “Annihilator I.” Most of the design issues had been resolved by 1918, however, the war ended two days before prototypes could be shipped to Europe. At an Auto-Ordnance board meeting in 1919, in order to discuss the marketing of the “Annihilator,” the weapon was officially renamed the “Thompson Submachine Gun.” While other weapons had been developed shortly prior with similar objectives in mind, the Thompson was the first weapon to be labeled and marketed as a “submachine gun.” Thompson intended for the weapon to provide a high volume of automatic, man-portable fire for use in trench warfare–a role for which the Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) had been determined ill-suited.
Thompson was originally produced in 1921. It was a popular submachine gun that later went into service with several militaries including the U.S. Army and United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force. Because of its high cost and the fact that it was not as effective as other machine guns, it only saw limited use. It later saw its reputation greatly increase following World War II when it became available to the public at low cost.
Thompson Submachine Guns have been used by the US military for more than a century. In fact, the first military Thompsons were sold to the United States Postal Inspection Service so that they could protect the mail from a spate of robberies.
Thompson Submachine guns were used during the Nicaraguan Banana Wars as a point-defense weapon against ambushes by Nicaraguan guerrilla forces. This led to the creation of four-man fire teams which had as much firepower as a nine-man rifle squad.
Federal sales were then followed by sales to police departments in the US, as well as to various international armies and constabulary forces; chiefly in Central and South America.
World War II
In 1938, the Thompson Submachine Gun was adopted by the U.S. military and was used during World War II. There were two types of Thompson submachine gun: The M1928A1, which had provisions for both box and drum magazines, utilized the Cutts muzzle brake, had cooling fins on the barrel, and employed a delayed blowback action with the charging handle on the top of the receiver.
The M1 was designed in 1954 and introduced in 1955, the M1A1 was a variant of the M1 rifle. The main difference between the two rifles is the M1A1 had a full-length dust cover over the chamber and barrel and was chambered for.30 caliber short.
In a recent survey, over 1.5 million submachine guns were produced during World War II, which is a huge number. It is almost a scary number!
The Thompson could not be reloaded while fully loaded and cocked. This is the reason for the drum magazine, which was invented to overcome the problems with the Thompson.
The drum magazine also attached and detached by sliding sideways, which made magazine changes slow and cumbersome. They also created difficulty when clearing a cartridge malfunction (“jam”). Loading an empty drum with cartridges was a difficult and involved process in which the 50 rounds would be inserted and then the magazine wound up until a minimum of 9 to 11 loud “clicks” were heard before seating the magazine into the weapon.
In contrast, the XX Magazine 20-Round (also known as the XXL) is a box magazine that is designed to hold twenty rounds of ammunition in a small package. It’s light, reliable and holds enough ammo for several days of shooting. It has a quick change design, making it fast and easy to load and unload rounds.
In this instance, the term “reloadable” is used to mean “capable of being reloaded”.
Forty rounds in the extended clip was used against a steel target plate with a drop from 30 feet. The other three magazines were fired at a 12 x 12-inch sheet of plywood with a drop from fifteen feet. When the extended magazine was shot, it would eject two 20-round magazines which had been welded together.
Thompson submachine guns were used in World War II as a personal sidearm for scouts, non-commissioned officers (corporal, sergeant, and higher), and patrol leaders, as well as commissioned officers, tank crewmen, and soldiers performing raids on German positions. In the European theater, the gun was widely utilized in British and Canadian commando units, as well as in the U.S.
Military police are often assigned to guard the barracks, which makes sense because they know the ins and outs of barracks living. Paratroopers, Rangers, and other special forces members are often issued Thompsons for use on patrol or in their own close quarters.
A variation of the American Thompson submachine gun, the Kulsprutepistol m/40 (Swedish: Kulspruta 44. served in the Swedish Army during the 1940s. It was the first modern Swedish service submachine gun. The Soviet Union received the Thompson, which could not be procured in sufficient quantities, but was never used in great numbers.
The Thompson was developed in 1935 by Canadian army captain J.A.D. “Tom” Thompson, who saw an opportunity to improve upon the M1917 Enfield rifle. It was a breech-loading, magazine-fed, selective fire weapon that could be fired fully automatically or semi-automatically with a simple cocking movement. The Thompson, along with the Bren and Sten, were the most widely used submachine guns in the British military during World War Two.
When the Australians and New Zealanders in the South Pacific went to war against the Japanese in 1942 and 1943, they didn’t have very many rifles. In fact, there wasn’t even enough Thompson submachine guns to equip their entire infantry forces. Instead, they used the Tommy, which was an old-fashioned rifle that was often referred to as the “tin can”. As it turned out, the British and Americans were also having a tough time of things at the time. So, when the Kiwis and Aussies began to run low on ammo for their Thompsons, they had some British Stens come over to assist.
After World War II
Thompson Sub-Machine Guns were first used in World War II. It was developed by the American Thompson Products company in conjunction with the British Army. Following the war, Thompsons were issued to members of Israel’s elite Unit 101, upon the formation of that unit in 1953.
In Greece, the Thompson submachine gun is a self-loading, selective fire, fully automatic, magazine fed, machine pistol, based on the Browning Hi-Power. It was developed by John T. Thompson (not to be confused with Thomas Thompson who made the “Trench Mortar”). In service with the Hellenic Army and Hellenic Gendarmerie, the Thompson was issued as a standard weapon from the start of the Greek Civil War until the end of the Greco-Turkish War of Independence in
After World War II, the Thompson was replaced by the FN MAG.
The opposing Communist fighters of the Democratic Army of Greece were also using Thompson submachine guns, either captured from government forces or inherited from ELAS. ELAS was the strongest of the resistance forces during the period of Greek Resistance against the Germans and Italians and were supplied with arms from both the British and the United States.
The Thompson submachine gun was used by the Greek army, the Dutch Army and the Indonesian Army. It is a heavy-caliber military machine gun of World War II design.
Thompsons are collector’s items. Fewer than 40 pre-production prototypes existed. The Colt Patent Fire Arms Manufacturing Company in Hartford, Connecticut was contracted by the Auto-Ordnance Corporation to make 15,000 Thompsons in 1920.
An original Colt Model 1921 A or AC, Model 1927 A or AC, Model 1928 Navy A or AC, properly registered in working condition with original components can easily fetch from US$20,000 to $30,000 depending on condition and accessories.
By WWII, approximately 1.7 million Thompson submachine guns were produced by two US arms companies, Autocannon Corporation and Savage Arms. The M1A1 version of the SMG was the most common weapon used by the US during the war, while the M1 version became a favorite of the Germans.
On January 21, 2012, a Model 1921A, was purchased at auction in Kansas City for $130,000. This rare pistol was believed to have been owned by Bonnie and Clyde, but without documentation proving the provenance of this piece, it has no value.
