Greeley, PA-(Ammoland.com)- Thompson Auto-Ordnance, maker of the famous “Tommy Gun” and other classic firearms throughout history, is excited to introduce the “Bonnie and Clyde” Thompson.

The Roaring Twenties created fame and notoriety for a new breed of outlaw. These “motorized bandits” roamed open roads, committing crimes and engaging in battles with lawmen devoted to their capture. Perhaps the most famous among them were the outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. These two criminals committed a long string of murders and robberies, ultimately leading to their demise in a fiery ambush by law enforcement officers. Despite their evil ways, both bandits became symbols of the time period and earned a role in American popular culture including multiple film portrayals.

Auto-Ordnance continues the legend with this custom finished and engraved “Bonnie and Clyde” Thompson. Each of these Tommy Guns are engraved with reminders of the outlaw duo’s escapades, including photos, a wanted poster, and news headline. The stock features text from Bonnie’s famous poem, “The Trail’s End”, foreseeing their crimes would not pay. The grip is engraved with the badge of the Texas Rangers, in commemoration of the legendary Frank Hamer’s leadership stopping the outlaws. The finish is a Cerakote “rusted” look. Underneath is an all steel, 18” barreled, 1927 pattern Thompson, chambered in powerful .45 ACP. The stock, forearm, and grip are Walnut.

The Auto-Ordnance “Bonnie and Clyde” Thompson gives today’s shooter a chance to own a custom piece of American history, and experience legendary shooting performance with every trip to the range! The “Bonnie and Clyde” Thompson (T150D-BNC) has an MSRP of $2,583 and comes with a 50-round drum and 20-round stick magazine. Contact your local firearms dealer to purchase. Now shipping!

Lovely two white trash sociopaths who left a trai of murder and mayhem are lauded by a nationally known firearms
manufacturer. Kahr Arms shame on you for stupidly honoring gangsters.

better.

Wow! A lot of negative stuff. As far as barrel length, sorry required by law unfortunately. Part of history like it or not. Need to see one up close before further comment.

B&C would have laughed at these monstrosities, and thrown them out them out the window,
with their dick-nosed 18″ barrels. We mock their memory, by shamelessly merchandising
something conformed to such impractical usage standards, by manufacturers dutifully
kowtowing to federal guidelines.

If they were alive, today, I think I know what B&C would say about these “Homage Guns”

I see nothing wrong with them being fashioned after B&C. So what. Part of history,folk lure etc.
The only problem I can see is…another ‘gaudy’ looking weapon.

Yay! Guns commemorating robbers and murderers! Just what we need.
The nod to the Texas Rangers is not enough to compensate.

I cannot comprehend why Auto Ordinance would want to glorify two criminals with these special offerings.

The .45 cal Tommy gun is a fun nostalgia gun, even if it is very heavy.
The long 16 inch barrels on these look silly.
First thing to do with them is apply for the tax stamp from ATF and then cut the barrel to the proper 10.5 inch length once you get the stamp.

I don’t understand the allure of a couple of small-time store robbers and murderers, or why any manufacturer would name products after them. (You may recall when Charter Arms marketed a set of two-inch revolvers under the name “Bonnie and Clyde.”)
And, the Barrow Gang (as they were consistently called outside of Bonnie’s poetry until the movie came out in 1967) hardly ever used Thompsons. They much preferred BARs.

So are the replicas also stamped “US Government Issue”, since they stole their firearms from a US armory?
