.45 ACP 1927 Thompson Clone Volunteer Enterprises Knoxville TN Commando Mk III .45 VG ca. 1971   Guns > Rifles > Thompson Subguns/Semi-Auto
Description: This is Not a Thompson. It’s a copy. From a collection in Davidson County, Tennessee, comes this very attractive, distinctive product from our neighbors in East Tennessee, a Volunteer Arms Commando Mark III semi-auto carbine that approximates the legendary 1927 Thompason Machine Gun. According to Fjiestad’s Blue Book, Volunteer Enterprises in Knoxville, TN, operated from 1969 until some time in the 1980s. This is one of their Thompson clones; not, mind you, quite like a Thompson since the bolt handle is on the left side and the construction is substantially different. This one’s serial number is very low - 8,000 range, and it does not have the 1972 patent date, so we estimate it was manufactured in 1971. Some of its Thompson Ancestors indeed served during that period, in Vietnam. Barrel is 16 1/2 inches, steel with heat dissipation rings anchored in a wood grain polymer vertical pistol grip forend. Main receiver is blued steel, and the lower receiver is texture coated stamped steel. Weight empty is a hefty 9 pounds 3 ounces. These carbines accept .45 ACP Grease Gun Magazines, still readily available and relatively inexpensive. Capacity is 30 round of .45 ACP Ammunition. Buttstock is American Walnut with a 15 1/2 inch length of pull. Overall length with stock installed is 36 1/2 inches; and overall length with the buttstock removed is 27 inches, so it’s okay to leave it disassembled if that’s what trips your trigger. Surface detractions are only moderate, with moderate whitening here and there, and some occasional freckling on the receiver and on the steel trigger and safety buttons. We rate it as Very Good, 80 to 85 percent vicinity by our estimate; photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright and clean and correctly proportioned. We have test fired this weapon with Winchester Ball ammo, and no hitches. We’re offering this Unique and Distinctive Tennessee Thompson, as we called them, for only $ 589.00.
