John T. Thompson made history in 1915 when he introduced the first portable hand-held automatic firearm we've come to know as the "Tommy Gun" and the "Chicago Typewriter." It has always been manufactured in .45 ACP, and now, Kahr Firearms Group has introduced the Deluxe model Thompson in 9 mm. This is the first time in more than 100 years that the Thompson has been manufactured in the smaller caliber.

The Thompson 9 mm model T5-9L20 features all the classic details that John Thompson so meticulously put into the original. The frame and receiver are machined from a solid billet of aluminum and the buttstock, grip and vertical foregrip are all made from American Walnut. The 9 mm is offered with one 20-round stick. The finned barrel measures 16.5" and 18" with the compensator. Overall length is 41". It features a front blade sight and an open rear adjustable. MSRP is $1,364.

"Fans of the Thompson product line have been asking about a 9 mm for a number of years," stated Frank Harris, vice president of sales and marketing. "We took our time to make sure that we got it perfect before we introduced it to the market. We really think that this 9 mm Thompson is going to be a hit with shooting enthusiasts across the globe."
