Usma West Point Museum (firearm Pics)

Recommended Posts

Since everyone here was interested in the photo of the Thompson from West Point, I thought I'd tell you about the photos I took in West Point's museum. I have a long thread of photos at UZI Talk that I add to from time to time. There are several Thompsons in the thread, including General Patton's M1A1, and at least one prototype.


If you'd like to see all of the pics, they're here: http://www.uzitalk.com/forums/showthread.p...hlight=thompson


I'm not much of a photographer, but I'll try to keep adding to this.

Nice pics!


Do you have any more info on the "thompson prototype" in one of the pics? Looks unlike anything I have read about, and looks almost like it is made from a 1911 lower frame...???

The gun in the West Point photo is the "Persuader" the very first belt fed Thompson prototype, patent applied for in December 1919 and is the Great Great Grand Daddy of the the Thompson.

Nice post.
