This would be the mark of the importer that reimported the gun from overseas years ago. Lots of Thompsons were brought back years ago and the importers were required to mark the gun in some fashion.
The company was probably based in Sacramento, CA. I think this topic came up once quite awhile ago on the old list.

If by "fixed bolt" you mean the firing pin is machined into the bolt face, this woudl be the M1A1 model
