Vintage Auto-Ordnance Thompson  C  Drum
Original Colt made 100 round drum magazine for the Thompson submachine gun. The "C" type drums were far less popular than their 50 round counterparts due to their size and weight(which was over 10lbs when fully loaded). Marked "AUTO-ORDNANCE CORP./NEW YORK N.Y. U.S.A./PATENTED/JULY. 27. 1920 DEC. 7. 1920/NO. 3685" & "MAGAZINE TYPE "C"/THOMPSON SUBMACHINE GUN/100 CARTRIDGES CAL. 45/WIND TO 15 CLICKS/NO. 3685" Appears all original with nickel plated rotor.
