  3. I am going to bring this back to the top for the Thompson enthusiasts that are new to Sturmgewehr.com. The above link for Amazon.com is still active with some great pricing options. I can also personalize a copy and ship to your front door. Send me a message via this forum.

You will find a documented history of the Thompson gun in Great Britain that is much more complete and different from previously published sources.

I have included the link below and encourage everyone to take a look. https://www.amazon.com/Great-Britain-Tommy-Gun-Story/dp/1502977818/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1481688977&sr=8-1&keywords=great+britain+-+the+tommy+gun+story Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all.
