$1.00

The Thompson submachine gun (also known as the “Tommy Gun”, “Chicago Typewriter”, “Chicago Piano”, or “Trench Broom”) is a blowback-operated, air-cooled, magazine-fed selective-fire submachine gun, invented by the United States Army Brigadier general John T. Thompson in 1918. It was originally designed to break the stalemate of trench warfare of World War I, but was not finished until after the war ended.

The Thompson saw early use by the United States Marine Corps during the Banana Wars, the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Irish Republican Army, the Republic of China, and the FBI (following the Kansas City Massacre).

The Thompson became notorious during the Prohibition era, used as a signature weapon of various organized crime syndicates in the United States in the 1920s. It was a common sight in the media at the time, and was used by both law enforcement officers and criminals.

The Thompson was widely adopted by the U.S. military during World War II, and was used extensively by the Allied troops during the war. More than 1.5 million military Thompson submachine guns were produced during World War II.

It is the first weapon to be labeled and marketed as a “submachine gun”.
