Thompson card by Mexicano27 Thompson card by Mexicano27
The Thompson, especially the early Model 1921, has a fairly high rate of fire at 900+ rounds per minute (rpm), higher than many other submachine guns of smaller caliber. This rate of fire, combined with a rather heavy trigger pull and a stock with excessive drop, increases the tendency of the gun to climb off target in automatic fire. Compared to modern 9mm submachine guns, the .45 Thompson is quite heavy. By the standards of the day the Thompson was one of the most effective and reliable submachine guns available.

The M1919, the pre-production model had an even higher rate of fire at 1500rpm! Higher than anyother Sub-Machine Gun that I know of in any caliber. I want to see one of those models on one of these cards(or any pre-M1 Thompson with a foregrip and not a forend).
