According to the thesaurus in MS Word a "tyro" is a novice.

Auto-Ordnance had the ROF way up there with the prototypes prior to actual build of the guns and kept notching it down in the ads as they got closer. Remember the Colt Thompson were not even produced until March of 1921, we are talking a December 1920 article. I have other articles with lower ROF but still higher then the final production models.

Thanks for the cool article, Sig.

I think I'll use that vice shown in the upper left if I ever want to change the barrel on my M1 Thompson.

Anybody notice that the TSMG pictured is a 1919 with no sight and no stock!
Gotta give Auto-Ord an A+ for effort for trying, I mean that is a freaking prototype they actually let loose IN the City of NY!
