Rear Battle Sight
The Thompson sub machine gun is perhaps the most recognizable firearm of World War II, made famous by the Airborne Troops of the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions. Though heavy by today's standards, the weight helped control the .45 caliber bursts when operated on full automatic. The first military issue model was the M1928A1, but this model was time consuming and expensive to produce. The M1 Thompson was the first simplification of this design, introducing a bolted on butt stock, and far simplified internal components. The Blish lock system was eliminated, vastly reducing machine time during production. The simplified L-sight, introduced with the M1928A1, was modified by adding protective side "ears", giving rise to the battle sight.
The Thompson submachine was invented by John T. Thompson in 1919 and became infamous during the Prohibition era. It was a common sight of the time, being used by both law enforcement officers and criminals. The Thompson was also known informally as: the "Tommy Gun," the "Trench Broom," the "Trench Sweeper," the "Chicago Piano," the "Chicago Typewriter," and the "Chopper." The Thompson was favored by soldiers, criminals and police alike for its ergonomics, compactness, large .45 ACP cartridges, and high volume of automatic fire and among civilian collectors for its historical significance.
