Auto-Ordnance and Ballistic Magazine Feature Custom Thompson for Giveaway

U.S.A.-( Thompson Auto-Ordnance, maker of the famous “Tommy Gun” and other classic firearms throughout history, has partnered with Ballistic Magazine for a custom Thompson Giveaway, featuring a limited production “Hail to the Chief Thompson” valued at $12,500.

After agreeing to a custom designed Thompson for the Ballistic Magazine giveaway, Auto-Ordnance and Outlaw Ordnance decided to make a very limited production run of 25 “Hail to the Chief Thompsons.” The first gun, numbered 1 of 25, will be used in the giveaway while the remaining 24 will be available for purchase. The Ballistic giveaway will run from now through June 8, 2020. Readers can enter the giveaway at:

Each “Hail to the Chief Thompson” is covered in artful imagery showcasing the life of America’s 45th president, Donald J. Trump. On the right side of the receiver is engraved “45th President of the United States”, and the unique number denoting each gun’s place in the series. The muzzle depicts the White House. The foregrip has the president’s famous “MAGA” slogan. The pistol grip boldly states two of President Trump’s commitments to the American people: “America First, Socialism Never”, and “Promises Made, Promises Kept”. On each side are images of President Trump and the White House. Members of the First Family are engraved on both sides of the buttstock, along with the Presidential Seal and American flag. “Keep America Great” is engraved on the left side of the receiver, along with the President’s signature. Hidden within the ornate scrollwork covering the gun are many “easter eggs” related to various important events in the President’s life. The finish of the gun is tough Cerakote Armor Black, then hand polished and clear coated. Highlights are done in PVC Gold.

I find it hilarious that someone would make a gun like this honoring the man who has enacted more arms control in his first two years than the previous two administrations combined.
