True fact, my father had one of these during WWII, hunted rattlesnakes with it.

To shoot or even gaze at such a lovely example of ingenuity and just plain awesomeness would make many people very happy for a very long time. And you Own it! Amendment II.

Hi my name is Chris and I am making a Documentary about the Southgate House- the house where General Thomson (inventor of the Tommy Gun) was born. It was turned into a musical venue, but unfortunately had to close down recently due to a financial quarrel between the 2 owners. I would like to touch up on the history of the building, but I don't have any stock photography of the General or the gun. I was wondering if I may be able to use this photograph. This is a non-profit production and proper credit can be given for any available contribution. My E-mail adress is Thank you.

Jake, that's the toolkit. Look up toolkits for ak-47's to see examples.

Spare parts kit: extractor, springs, etc.
jake 27-Aug-2010 20:42
what is the small gold cylinder fastened near the bottom right of the violin case, next to the screwdriver?
syd 27-Aug-2010 15:14
Photoshopped or boner still has'nt ended..... As classy as the marylin monroe photo with the blowin skirt.
C. G. Anderson26-Aug-2010 00:07
Photo-shopped? To Hell you say!
Guest 25-Aug-2010 13:51
Photo shopped
Guest 23-Aug-2010 05:51
Oh, and we're touring the country side.. that's why you're not invited...

- Remy Dionysus... again..
Guest 23-Aug-2010 05:50
When I saw it, I said "Huhn... what?"
Then I scrolled down and fell in love.
I know that one day, this Tommy gun and I are going to get married.
On top of a mountain.
And there will be flutes playing.
And trombones.
And garlands of fresh.. herbs.
And we will dance.
Until the sun rises.
And then our children will form a family band.
And YOU won't be invited! >:C

Guest 23-Aug-2010 00:14
I'll bet that's a suprisingly heavy violin!
Zod 22-Aug-2010 00:59
I would love to have that violin. I could play such a beautiful ballad with it.
Scott 05-Jun-2010 03:02
This picture is truly epic.
DatGuy 17-May-2010 20:00
I always wanted to play the violin!
mapdude 08-May-2010 16:53
How long does it take to load and then empty a clip?
C. G. Anderson24-Apr-2010 23:11
Yes, it is fully functional. I have modified its rate of fire with the addition of 1921 parts. Assembly isn't really quick as the foregrip has to me screwed on. I'd say ready to play in a few minutes. It spends most of its time assembled in the safe.
Daniel 22-Apr-2010 03:50
Is it still operational? Do you ever assemble it? If so, how long does it take?
Very nice item, too!
faze 21-Apr-2010 13:05
if i had that it would never leave my side... i think i would name her claire,or jezibell.
Kristabell 20-Apr-2010 22:32
...then where's the violin?
bcmike 18-Jan-2010 21:49
This is a sweet photo and a beautiful display of a fine firearm, but if you wanted to be historically accurate you shouldn't have put a plastic handled screwdriver in the case.
Again great shot.
dman67 06-Jan-2010 05:13
would love to have one for myself
hat 14-Dec-2009 22:56

James Titus 03-Nov-2009 16:07
