A Handsome Thompson Submachine Gun Honoring the Patriotic Symbol of American Freedom
“Where liberty dwells, there is my country.”
– Benjamin Franklin
America Remembers introduces the American Eagle Tribute Thompson. This Thompson submachine gun is a classic Patriotic Tribute firearm.
America’s Founding Fathers shaped our nation around one clear vision: freedom. Today, more than ever, a deep sense of national pride and our vision of freedom is what binds us together as the United States of America; it surrounds our brave men and women who defend our country, and it will carry us forward through the great challenges that lie ahead.
For centuries, the American bald eagle has flown proudly as the ultimate symbol of our national pride and pursuit of freedom. In the high quiet of the deep blue sky, the eagle is a fierce hunter with no equal. Our founders saw in the bald eagle the very same qualities that defined our new nation: strength, courage, and resilience. When it was officially adopted as our national symbol in 1782, the American bald eagle became a treasured symbol of American patriotism that will forever represent the freedoms we hold so dear.
America Remembers is extremely proud to introduce an impressive new collector firearm honoring the spirit of American freedom: The American Eagle Tribute Thompson. This exclusive Tribute is being offered on a working Thompson Semi-Automatic in caliber .45 ACP, the perfect canvas on which to honor our nation’s enduring spirit and all of the brave Americans who have fought to preserve it. Craftsmen commissioned specifically for this project by America Remembers decorate each working Thompson submachine gun in sparkling 24-karat gold and nickel with a blackened patinaed background to highlight the details of the patriotic artwork.
The Thompson Submachine Gun: An American Original
By selecting the legendary Thompson submachine gun for the American Eagle Tribute, we’ve chosen an American-made firearm that was born of the same ingenuity and perseverance that made our country great. At home and abroad, the mighty Thompson submachine gun has proved itself in the service of courageous soldiers and lawmen.
In 1915, retired Army General John T. Thompson began research on a weapon that would put more firepower in the hands of Allied men on the frontlines. However, in the absence of a global conflict, the Thompson submachine gun was immediately touted as a powerful crime fighting tool. Unfortunately, many of the Thompson’s biggest fans were the country’s most wanted criminals, but once J. Edgar Hoover’s G-Men got a hold of the Tommy Gun, the odds were made a little more even.
The United States military went on to use the Thompson submachine gun in World War II, the Korean War as well as in Vietnam, and the FBI kept Tommy Guns in their arsenal up until 1976. To this day the Thompson remains one of the most widely recognized and respected American firearms in our nation’s history and throughout the world.

The handsome Patriotic Tribute firearm is highly-polished, blued steel, accented with 24-karat gold decorations, including the butt plate, compensator, spherical cocking knob, rear sight, swivels, trigger, and activator. Complementing the overall design are the crafted stocks of richly polished, American walnut.
Both sides of the receiver feature a magnificent American bald eagle, delicately hand-etched in stunning 24-karat gold and nickel. Flowing in the background are the proud colors of the American flag – the handsome white nickel, the brilliant blue of the star field and the striking red stripes (which feature a distinctive mixture of gold and pure copper). A blackened patina process is used on this Patriotic Tribute firearm to highlight the details of the artwork, including the meticulous rendering of the eagle’s outstretched wing feathers.
