American businessman Randle M. Goetze recently donated an incredible group of 12 Thompson submachine guns, along with a group of Thompson-related accoutrements, to the NRA National Firearms Museum. The collection of near mint-condition Thompsons includes the Colt Model 1921AC (pictured here), which features a Type C 100-round drum magazine with a serial number matching that of the gun, as well as a Colt Model 1921/1928 Navy that was once housed in the armory of the Maryland State Police. Others represented in the collection once belonged to the Grosse Pointe, Mich., Police Department; the West Frankfort, Ill., police; and the York, Pa., police. These dozen selective-fire submachine guns are now on exhibit.

The NRA National Firearms Museum at NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, Va.; the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Mo.; and the Frank Brownell Museum of the Southwest at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, N.M.; each have fine selections of historic arms on display. Admission to each is free, and donations are gratefully accepted. For more information, visit nramuseums.com, phone (703) 267-1600 or email mailto:[email protected].
