Greeley, PA – (Ammoland.com) – Thompson Auto-Ordnance, maker of the famous “Tommy Gun” and other classic firearms throughout history, is proud to introduce the Bootlegger Firearms Series Thompson and 1911.
The Thompson is often called the “gun that made the 20’s roar”, but it was not the only reason for that saying. In fast cars with loads of moonshine, 1920’s bootleggers roared down country roads, evading the law and delivering white lightning to speakeasies. Lawmen raced after the motor bandits, wielding Tommy Guns and 1911s. It was not long before Hollywood depicted these duels on the big screen. The Roaring 20’s blazed a trail into American pop culture and history. MSRP for the Bootlegger Thompson is $2,309 (T1-14C2) and for the Bootlegger 1911 is $1,215 (1911BKOC2).
Auto-Ordnance’s latest custom guns commemorate the era with the “Bootlegger” Thompson and 1911. Each gun is artfully engraved with depictions of 1920s autos, newspaper print, wanted posters, and historical images from the time. The Thompson barrel is marked “Speakeasy”. The 1911 slide and Thompson receiver are engraved “Bootlegger Prohibition Edition”, and “Proof Tennessee Moonshine”. Beautiful scrollwork covers the American Walnut wood furniture, and sections of the steel. The finish is distressed Midnight Blue Cerakote with a clear coating overlayed. The wood furniture is also distressed and then stained. The Thompson features a 16.5” barrel, 20 round stick, and 50 round drum magazines. The 1911 features a 5” barrel and one seven-round magazine. Both guns are chambered in .45 ACP. The Thompson Bootlegger Series is now shipping and is an exclusive product offered through Big Rock Sports.
