Commie Tommy

Readers here know of my affinity for the 7.62x25mm cartridge.  Couple that with my love of 20’s era gangsters, and you get a wet dream in the form of a Chinese Thompson SMG copy chambered in the 7.62x25Tok round.

Check out Forgotten Weapons for more pictures.  It seems to feed off of 35rd PPSh-41/43 mags.  The Thompson was known for it’s climbing recoil due to the angle of the stock coupled with thumping out 230gr hardball.  The Tokarev round is relatively tiny at 85grs but with even more muzzle energy than a .45acp and I think a mag dump from this on could easily be kept on a small target.  Thanks to Cerebralzero for turning me on to this.

    I’ll bet it runs like a raped ape, too.

    Two great tastes that go great together… Love the Tok round, and the Tommy is the most fun full auto I’ve ever played with.

    To get rid of muzzle climb on a Thompson, stop gripping the forearm and just let it rest in your support hand. The slow cyclic rate combines with the weight of the gun to keep the muzzle down. Gripping the forearm tightly, your support hand just follows the muzzle up after every shot, causing the next one to go higher.

    I was tickled when an experienced Thompson hand pointed this out to me, and it really does work.

    And now you know, and knowing is half the battle! Go Joe! 😀
