I found this rifle to be very interesting. It's not a Tommy Gun; it's a Commando Mark III carbine by Volunteer Enterprises. Unlike a Thompson, this gun is a cheaply-built semi-auto that fires from a closed bolt. But it does burn 45 ACP ammo (same as the old Tommy) and at a passing glance it kind of looks like a Thompson. Best of all, it doesn't cost nearly as much as a Thompson. And yeah, okay, I'll admit it - it looks way cool.
