Product Information

This is a WWII Thompson M1A1 submachine gun and is an early Auto-Ordnance Bridgeport made example with a low 5 digit serial number. AOC are estimated to have made 249,555 M1 and M1A1s, this example is number 30, 689th and dates to early 1943. Note the receiver is marked AO-45 with the US crossed cannons ordnance acceptance stamps. This is only found on early M1A1's. The stock is marked with the initials AAF. This abbreviation was used by both the British and US military during WWII. The most likely candidate is the British " Allied Air Force". This is further supported by the rear sling swivel that has been moved to the top of the stock. This conversion was most commonly done at the request of British Commando units during WWII. The US also used  the A.A.F abbreviation for "Army Airforce" which was a precursor to the U.S. Air Force (USAF). A fascinating WWII Thompson.

Deactivated to current specifications with tensioned cocking lever.
