So often, talks of iconic American firearms are dominated by the likes of the 1911, the M1 Garand, the M14 and the M16. Today, it is time to break the mold by talking about an often overlooked American icon that demands attention – the Thompson submachine gun.
The Thompson, designed by John T. Thompson, is an American submachine gun that features a blowback system of operation and gained notoriety during the Prohibition Era due to a number of its features that made it particularly appealing to mobsters. Among those features are its ergonomics, compact size, reliability, high rate of fire and the .45 ACP cartridges it spit. Its most defining characteristic, however, is arguably the 50-round "L" drum feeding system.
You do not need me to tell you that if you have a Thompson, the 50-round "L" drum is a must. And if you have a drum, you need a Thompson drum cover to go with it. That is where we come in. Keepshooting.com now carries Crosby-made Thompson drum covers that will make your drums look brand spanking new.
