Zoot Suit Not Included! The TG-NINE — SHOT Shot Show 2024

Levi Sim SHOT Show 2024

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

For those of us who are fewer than 100 years old, Diamondback Firearms has launched a Tommy Gun-styled PCC, and it’s kinda hot.

Walnut stock, walnut foregrip, drum magazine — Check, check, and check!

Diamondback’s TG-NINE has a gorgeous walnut stock and fore grip crafted by Custom Firearms Products in Texas. Like the original Thompson Sub Machine Gun, it also uses a blowback action and shoots a pistol caliber.

However, though there was experimentation with 9mm Luger, the original Chicago Typewriter (.45 ACP) was not mass-produced in 9x19mm. The TG-NINE is chambered for 9mm and it’s compatible with Magpul’s PMAG D-50 GL9 fifty-round drum magazine.

You’ve got the walnut stocks, the fifty-round mag, and the blowback action…what’s missing…?

This hard guitar case comes standard and offers waterproof protection and wheels to haul your tools. Baby Face Nelson would be proud.

Ah! An incognito transportation method. The TG-NINE also comes standard with the Savior Equipment Ultimate Guitar Case 45″. Finally, you can be ready to paint the town red in classic style. Maybe they should include trips to Chicago with every purchase…

Diamondback Firearms’ TG-NINE is available now. MSRP $1,699.

    It appears my comment about this being just another pistol caliber AR with wood furniture had to be deleted. Hit a nerve did we? Seriously this rifle has nothing in common with a Thompson. Let’s just call it what it really is a dressed up pistol caliber AR for $1600.

    • Will January 31, 2024, 3:45 am

      And your feelings clearly got hurt so bad that you had to comment the same boring rhetoric twice😭… if you don’t like it, then move the f*** on fool !!!

    So we have a pistol caliber blow back design AR with wood furniture and a drum. About as comparable to a Thompson as a Tavor is. There’s nothing new here that people haven’t been building themselves for years now.

    • Will January 31, 2024, 3:49 am

      And no, your comment is right here loser… like I said to some people this is cool if you don’t like it move on I’m not sure why you feel the need to comment your opinion… it’s people like you that give the gun community a bad name. if I had to guess I would say you’re probably under 35-40 max and most def. a millennial or Gen z lol…I’d put money on that last statement because not much good came out of those two generations other than coddled little pussies and crybabies who can’t stand to not voice their opinion, and then can’t understand why someone doesn’t agree with their shitty opinions🤣… oh yeah, I forgot about the fact that none of them wanna actually work for a living.

    I am not sure why the reference to zoot suits. Is that supposed to be clever? It isn’t because it makes no sense. Zoot suits were worn by young latino men in the forties and they were never even remotely associated with the Tommy gun. The Thompson’s heyday as a civilian gangster’s go-to sprayer of lead peaked in the thirties, with the implementation of the National Firearms Act of 1934 (NFA). While the Thompson lived on through WWII, were the version with the horizontal foregrip and stick magazines saw much use. Though some Thompsons remained in circulation even after the NFA and the War, this fine example of engineering genius with a beautiful silhouette lost favor with the public due to its weight and the hassle of the NFA. While this article was otherwise fair to middling, the nonsensical reference to zoot suits was just a desperate attempt at humor, I guess. It sure wasn’t based on reality.

      You’re right! My bad. In my mind, zoot suits were earlier. Thanks for the correction.

      • Grumpy Old Biker January 27, 2024, 10:17 am

        Sorry for the angry tone of my post. Keep up the good work.

  • Clint W. January 25, 2024, 8:18 am

    No. Whether your a blonde, brunette, or red head man, this one is bald.

  • Davud January 25, 2024, 8:14 am

    Just the thing for all that from-the-hip AR shooting I do.

    • Peter January 29, 2024, 7:38 am

      If it has a binary trigger, that is.
