Thompson Auto-Ordnance just gave its popular Thompson M1 a facelift with the WWII-themed Tanker Thompson.

Chambered in .45 ACP, the Thompson M1 is a semi-auto replica of the famous American submachine gun from World War II. However, the special-edition model has some added flair.

Tanker Thompson Origins

Auto-Ordnance literally created the new Thompsons around the phrase “Built like a tank.”

The manufacturer designed the series of WWII commemorative guns to honor the memory of the brave American soldiers who faced the enemy in steel chariots like the M4 Sherman Tank.

“Nearly 50,000 Shermans were produced during World War II, seeing action primarily in Europe against Nazi Germany. Just like the Thompson, these Shermans were a vital part of the war effort,” Auto-Ordnance said in a release. “Though the crews that took them into harm’s way were often outgunned by German tanks, they took the fight to the enemy and achieved victory despite the odds.”

Tanker Thompson Features

Auto-Ordnance Cerakoted each Tanker Thompson in Army O.D. Green.

The manufacturer also engraved the white star of the Sherman Tank just in front of the magwell, while a “U.S.” logo appears on the buttstock.

Like every Thompson, the gun is all steel with high-grade walnut furniture. The barrel is 16-inches.

The firearm features a walnut-fixed stock and a vertical foregrip. It comes with 30-round and 20-round stick magazines, a Kerr sling and a mag pouch.

MSRP is $1,749.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
