M1928 submachine gun, USA 1918


Replica of a rifle, made of metal and wood, with simulated mechanism of loading and firing and with removable magazine.

The M1928 automatic submachine gun designed by John Taliaferro Thompson in 1918 was adopted in 1938 by the United States Armed Forces serving during World War II and later in the Korean War as well as in early instances of the Vietnam War. It was the favorite of soldiers, criminals, police and civilians for their ergonomics, compact size, reliability, high firing rate in automatic mode and for their ammunition .45 ACP. It had a straight magazine of 20 cartridges or a magazine loader of 50-100 cartridges.

It acquired bad reputation during the time of Prohibition or “dry law” in the United States (1920-1933). It appeared normally in the media of that period, due it was the weapon preferred by the gangsters. Its nicknames were "Trench Broom", "Trench Sweeper", "Chicago Typewriter", "Chicago Piano", "Chicago Style" or "The Chopper".
Since then it has gained popularity among collectors because of its historical importance.

    The replica is very realistic. Perfect for display or as a photo prop. Unfortunately, unlike the photos and the videos here, the orange plug in the barrel protrudes 1/4" which spoils the look. Federal law requires Denix to ship the replica that way but does not require the consumer to keep in intact (only required during sale and shipment).
    But this plug cannot be removed. The photos show the plug recessed into the barrel which is fine for display but not sticking out 1/4". Had I known it would arrive this way I would not have purchased.

    That's a good thing. I'd use it instead of a stick. Booce will surely withstand it as real. I had to keep your produce for a few times and I liked it. Especially liked the 1911 black thing, well and peace maker

    It feels and looks super genuine, however, me personally would've liked a box magasine more than a drum magasine.

    I'm decorating my living room in Depression-Prohibition Era 1920's to 1940's and this Tommy Gun replica leaning against the wall is a great addition to the room.
