A new book on the Thompson submachine gun by Tom Davis, Jr. 

A Thompson Compendium is a series of in-depth stories about several specific variations of the Thompson gun and accessories. It also includes the accurate story of Potomac Arms in Alexandria, Virginia and reveals serial numbers of over 400 Thompson submachine guns sold at that renowned gun store. As you read the book you will find the following information:

  • The First Savage Thompson - several chapters on the earliest Savage guns

  • Savage Commercial Thompsons - never seen before information

  • Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests specifically for a potential Savage Commercial Thompson

  • The Bridgeport Commercials - eighty 1928ACs are pictured and reviewed

  • The NAC Thompson guns - an in-depth review

  • Potomac Arms - the story and serial number information for over 400 Thompson submachine guns

  • Spare Part Kit update - two new variations and more information on the Herigstad kits.

  • A French Colt returns home

  • How to identify Colt wood

 

The book is filled with numerous color photographs and expansive captions that will teach the Thompson enthusiasts the many important features of the different Thompson variations. While geared toward the beginner or new enthusiast, current Thompson owners and advanced collectors will find a lot of valuable and heretofore unknown and unpublished information.

 

 In addition, dealers that do not specialize in the Thompson guns will be better able to accurately describe the Thompson guns they have for sale. And correctly evaluate Thompson guns offered for trade or direct sale.

 

This is a must book for the Thompson enthusiast's library!

Have had my copy now for over a month.  A great book that delves into certain  aspects  of the Thompson's history that other books overlook.  Would highly recommend if you are a serious collector! Todd in Oregon
