As of 12/29/12, if your Thompson topic only applies to semi-automatic examples made by Auto-Ordnance in West Hurley, New York, or Kahr Arms in Worcester, MA, you should post in this forum. If your post has relevance to full auto Thompsons, it should be posted in the main Thompson forum. Semi-auto posts prior to 12/29/12 will remain in the main Thompson forum.
This forum is provided as a resource for collector associations associated with the Thompson Submachine Gun to post information about joining their organizations, as well as certain static content, such as newsletters, etc.
This forum is intended to complement the Thompson SMG Forum. Many who are interested in the TSMG also have an interest in other, early 20th Century firearms, cars, and the spectacular history of crime and law enforcement in the 1920’s and 1930’s to which they were associated. So, if you want to discuss Dillinger Thompsons, go to the TSMG forum, but if you want to discuss the finer historical points of Dillinger the outlaw, you should post here.
We have many experts who frequent this website. This forum is intended for posting questions about firearms and firearm related items that may be unknown to the poster, for which they would like to seek the advice of advanced knowledge firearm collectors.
Discussion of general firearm & Class III firearm manuals and related books. Do you have a book review, or questions about what manuals or books exist for a firearm? Post your reviews and questions here.
Firearms and photography are two lifelong interests that resulted in the creation of this forum. The forum will focus on firearm photographic techniques and equipment, and posting of favorite firearm photos, such as still lifes with the firearm accessories and related, vintage items.
Since 2008, the Thompson Submachine Gun board at the top of this website has led the way on identification and awareness of reproduction accessories. This new forum is intended as a place to discuss, vet, debate, and document any firearm or accessory that is possibly fake, reproduction, or whatever term is preferred. It should be noted that some legitimate reproduction items exist, and it is the position of this website that they should be marked appropriately.
