Wow!  That is a breathtaking collection, and I am sure that it only scratches the surface of what the Army has in its museum system.  I would love to take a stroll through that place. 

 

Thanks for the post.

Well if it's Granads you like, get ready for your jaw to hit the floor...

I'm a walnut stock guy, but that tiger striped birch stock on the one closest is super nice.

Very Cool! What are the two firearms below the Thompson? They look like experimental versions of the platform.

What is that contraption with a carousel of what appears to be M1911 magazines?

That is a WW1 experimental submachine gun. The turret like device held ten 7 round .45 pistol magazines. This was 21 inches long and weighed about 8.5 pounds. It was never adopted by the US Army.. It was manufactured in Falls, Ohio. It was developed by William Andrew.

Thank you Leigh, I will have to look up info on it - I had never seen one in my life. I can see why it wasn't adopted, but hey, every invention has to start somewhere!

Top is George Hydes model 35

Bottom is George Hydes M2  which was adopted but never got into wide service due to Marlins production models not being reliable, so the M3 was adopted instead

You are correct, they are prototypes in the development of the Thompson.
