This is a 1/2 scale M-1 Thompson
by the legendary Edmund de la Garrigue. 16" long overall with a 5 1/4" rifled barrel of
.25 caliber. Parkerized finished steel parts, oiled finished walnut stocks. This is a non-firing model.
Some of these were registered class III fully automatic firing weapons. There is a firing pin
bump on the bolt face, but there is no chamber cut, no extractor, and no ejector. The
magazine is a solid block of steel with a more correct thin profile, and the magazine release spring is there, which
is unusual as it is nearly always missing on these. The sides of the receiver properly and deeply roll
stamped. Marked on the left side of the upper receiver ""EDMUND H. DE LA GARRIGUE, SR., MAKER" in two
lines. Serial number 103. Excellent near mint condition showing only very minor handling
wear and a few small freckles to the finish. There are a lot of stories about Mr. de la Garrigue, but he is most famously
known as the inventor of the Grizzly single action army revolver. There is an out of print book about Mr. de la Garrigue
called "Artistry in Single Action" by Halton Henderson. Only 450 copies were printed, so they are very rare,
expensive, and difficult to find. The book documents these miniature Thompsons as well as several other miniatures made
by Mr. de la Garrigue.

This is a 1/2 scale miniature
1928 AC Thompson sub-machine gun made by the legendary Edmund de la Garrigue. 17" long
overall, the finned & rifled barrel measures 6 1/2" long including the Cutts compensator.
Beautiful high polish blue finish. This piece has the correct markings roll stamped into the sides
of the receiver along with Mr. de la Garrigue's maker's mark on the left side of the upper receiver. Serial # 1019 marked
on the left side of the upper receiver. Nicely figured walnut stock. The pistol grip, and vertical pistol
grip forearm are straight grain walnut. Includes a 50 round "L" type drum magazine. The drum is complete
with the internal feed star, but typical of de la Garrigue Thompsons with drum magazines, does not have
the spring or cartridge feed rails. Detachable buttstock, the buttplate with a trap door for an
oiler (not included). Beautiful Cutts compensator. Has the base for the Lyman windage and
elevation adjustable rear sight with the correct Lyman markings, but again typical of the de la Garrigue Thompsons, the rest
of the rear sight is missing. Complete with a very nice violin, or more probably actually ukulele casing.
The interior bottom French fit and lined in a dark blue velour. Also includes a 1/2 scale Thompson handbook, an empty
box of .25 ACP cartridges, and a black engraved plaque marked "GREETINGS, FROM , AL CAPONE" in three lines.
Beautiful near mint condition showing only very minor handling wear, and just a little rust on the top tang of the buttplate.
