GREELEY, Pa. -(Ammoland.com)- History was made in 1915 when John T. Thompson introduced the first portable hand-held automatic weapon commonly referred to as the “Tommy Gun”, also coined the “Chicago Typewriter.”

It has always been manufactured in .45 ACP, and now, Kahr Firearms Group is proud to introduce the Deluxe model Thompson in 9mm. This is the first time in over 100 years that the Thompson has been manufactured in the smaller caliber.

The Thompson 9mm model T5-9L20 features all the classic details that John Thompson so meticulously put into the original. The frame and receiver are machined from a solid billet of aluminum and the buttstock, grip and vertical fore grip are all made from American Walnut.

The 9mm is offered with one 20-round stick. The finned barrel measures 16.5 inches and 18 inches with the compensator. Overall length is 41 inches. It features a front blade sight and an open rear adjustable.

The MSRP is $1364.

“Fans of the Thompson product line have been asking about a 9mm for a number of years,” stated Frank Harris, VP Sales and Marketing. “We took our time to make sure that we got it perfect before we introduced it to the market. We really think that this 9mm Thompson is going to be a hit with shooting enthusiasts across the globe.”

9mm? Why? .45 auto isn’t good enough? How’s about a 10mm? Now you’re talking!

Aluminum? Ugh… they not only were made in 9×19, they have been made in .38Super,7.62×25,7.63×25 and .30 Carbine…get on our good side and make all of them-in STEEL as well.

Kahr Arms marketing/PR needs to dust off some of the files they acquired from Auto-Ordnance when they bought them. This is NOT the first time that a Thompson was in 9mm – there were 9mm versions made around WW2.
