Item Description: Law Enforcement Ordnance Company, 1982. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 231 pages. 11.5" x 9". The history of the Thompson's development, its turbulent use by gangsters and bank robbers, its role as a police and FBI instrument in controlling the famous criminals of the Depression era, its extensive and endemic use by industry in the 1920s and 1930s in suppressing labor violence are all covered in rich detail. Every known variation of the Thompson is explored, all its models, markings and variations uncovered and described with attention to the least variant, supported by hundreds of photographs. All the many accessories, magazines, and items associated with the Thompson are detailed and explained. Collectors will find this material essential in understanding the abundance of different models and types of Thompsons and accessories that were produced. A special section on buying and collecting Thompsons is provided to guide the collector as well. Techniques of firing the Thompson Submachine Gun are detailed for all models, with the proper loading method and using instruction for all types of magazines and ammunition. The legal aspects of owning machine guns are explored in great depth, including how they are registered, how the National Firearms Act is enforced, regulations which have been promulgated by the government to enforce this Act, and how an individual collector must proceed to legally posses a Thompson or other automatic weapon. An added feature, never offered before in a firearms reference, is a listing of all known original purchasers of Thompson by serial number and model. This allows any collector to verify the history and origin of his Thompson, or one he is considering purchasing, from over 3,000 entries. Four original manuals and catalogs dating from 1923 to 1936 are reproduced as well, which will give the reader technical information on assembly, reassembly and design of the Thompson, and a flavor of the sales efforts of the original Auto-Ordnance Corporation and how it is viewed its own creation. Police, collectors, historians and any interested in American arms will find the Thompson Submachine Gun an indispensable reference that is as enjoyable as it is informative. The Book comes with a 38 pp. bound Supplement that Cox produced in 1986 which includes much additional information. Very Scarce. The Book, Dust Jacket and Supplement are in Fine condition. An opportunity to own a very nice copy of this hard to find reference book at a reasonable price. Bookseller Inventory # 5681
