Authentic automatic machine pistol Thompson M1! A mythical weapon of the second world war

The automatic machine pistol is a model M1 and not an MIA1, it is 3 times more rare! for critical collectors

Identification of the weapon:
Brand: Thompson
Model: Thompson M1
Calibre: 45 ACP


Thompson M1 was used throughout the second world war, which explains the signs of manipulation, to me considering the age and what it has been through, the condition is exemplary.

N °of certificate: 000184652
Serial No.: 4915

In 1942, to meet the constraints of the war, the M1 is put into production. The weapon is simplified, it is now operated directly by the recoil, only for straight chargers of 20 or 30 shots. Total production in 1942/43: 285,480 pieces


It will be followed later in the year for an even simpler version called M1A1 with the firing pin built into the cylinder head. It was produced between 1942 and 1944 in 539,143 copies.

I put very specific photographs.

European certificate of neutralisation according to the new standards.

The package is sent by registered Post NL with insurance at the price of the transaction.
