First look: Auto Ordnance Thompson Carbine

First look: Auto Ordnance Thompson Carbine


For 2016, Kahr Firearms Group has given the semi-auto version of the famous Thompson submachine gun a more authentic look with the introduction of its new barrel design on the Thompson T1-14 carbine. With a barrel length of just 16.5 inches, it is 1.5 inches shorter than the existing T1 models with the 18-inch barrels.


The .45 ACP caliber T1-14 from Auto Ordnance has a permanently affixed Cutts compensator which lengthens the finned barrel length to 16.5 inches, and puts the overall length for the carbine at 39 inches from buttstock to muzzle. The BATFE recently approved the permanently affixed Cutts compensator as a part of the barrel.

This model also features a blade front and open rear adjustable sight and weighs 12.5 pounds. The fixed stock is crafted in polished American Walnut and has a vertical foregrip. Suggested retail for the new Thompson is $1,461.


Another addition to the shorter barrel 1927A-1 collection from Auto Ordnance is the T1B-14, which specs the same as the T1-14, but instead of a walnut fixed stock, it comes with a detachable buttstock with vertical foregrip. Both models are available in .45 ACP and ship with one 20-round stick magazine. The suggested retail price on the T1B-14 is $1,910.
