The model M1 is a simplified version of the 1928 A1 model and was adopted in April 1942. The M-1 and M-1A1 updated models of the venerable Thompson were devised by Savage Arms
The M1 Thompson is the last production version of the Thompson series
This is the model that was used by Rangers through the end of WWII
This gun is very popular because of its reliability and use throughout WWII, Korea and Vietnam
Not only did US soldiers use the Thompson in Vietnam, but they encountered it as well. A number of them were made in small jungle workshops in North Vietnam. The Thompson is still in use worldwide especially with guerrilla forces.
In the United States it was used by law enforcement, most prominently by the FBI, until 1976 when it was declared obsolete.
A U.S. Marine, fighting in Okinawa, Japan, during World War II, fires a military-issue Thompson's submachine gun.
