Thompson Auto-Ordnance, maker of the legendary Tommy Gun, announced its new Deluxe model Thompson chambered in 9mm is rolling out the factory and headed towards dealers and distributors.
The Tommy Gun has long been chambered in .45 ACP, but Kahr Firearms Group has revamped the famed design for a modern generation with the model T5-9L20 Thompson.
“The 9mm version is an original design by Thompson Auto-Ordnance in-house engineers, using the original Thompson platform,” the company said in a press release.
The 9mm variant offers a frame and receiver machined from a solid billet of aluminum while the buttstock, grip and foregrip are crafted from American Walnut. Featuring a barrel measuring 16.5-inches, the 9mm model comes with a compensator that adds an additional 2-inches onto the front end. Overall, the firearm measures 41-inches in total length.
The T5-9L20 9mm Thompson ships with one 20-round stick magazine and is now available with a MSRP of $1,364.
