This is Doug Richardsonís Web Site dedicated to the Thompson Submachine Gun and Colonel Thompsonís Auto-Ordnance Corp. and features books, drawings, parts, accessories, receivers, and much more.
This website contains miscellaneous Thompson information which is
thought to be helpful and informative. Although it includes all the
publications available and product and other news from time to time,
it is not meant to be a Catalog or intended to provide ordering
information for the many Thompson products we offer. So please
order from the
catalog which includes ordering information and much more information
regarding my Products.

This is the general information page as shown in the current catalog.
Persons who have older catalogs should check this information sheet for any updates.
SERVICE: I try to give good service and answer the phone. I return every call that leaves a phone number that I can understand. I am, however, retired, old and I have poor vision. I do this as a hobby so donít expect e-commerce order speed. The upside is that I have been working on and researching Thompson guns for almost 70 years which, along with my engineering expertise, may benefit those with patience.
QUESTIONS: I do not mind answering technical questions regarding Thompson guns by phone, letter or e-mail. Please do not ask for value appraisals which I do not do. The best time to phone me for long calls is 9pm-10pm when I am least busy. If you write for information and want a reply, include a self addressed, stamped envelope. Questions of general interest, along with my answers, will be forwarded to the Thompson Collectors News for publication and posted on ThompsonSMG.com.
GUARANTEE: Most of the items in this catalog are designed and manufactured by me and available nowhere else. The quality is the best available. If you do not agree, return any purchase for a full refund of the purchase price. Except for a defect in a product I manufactured, all sales are final after 30 days. Unless otherwise stated, my products are designed to fit original Thompson Submachine Guns (No true Thomson gun has been made since1944.) in their standard configurations for which I have all the original drawings and specifications. I can not guarantee the fit or function of my products in aftermarket TSMGs (non-original copies like Numrich or Kahr "Auto-Ordnance") or semi-autos or guns which have been modified. (Visit Auto-OrdnanceCorporation.com.)
TERMS: Add $14 ($18 for receivers and $36 for barreled receivers) Handling, Insurance and Shipping (HIS) unless otherwise stated. If the order is less than $100 and is for pamphlets, drawings or other small items which can be packed in a U.S. Post Office Priority Envelope or small padded envelope, add $7 HIS. No CODs, credit cards or billing. I consider everything other than currency or U.S. Post Office Money Orders to be the same as personal checks which will delay the order at least 14 days for check clearing. I will not ship anything other than catalogs to a foreign country.
PHONE & E-M: Please include your phone and e-mail contacts in case I have a question about your order. I just donít have time to write letters when a quick call gets it done.
CATALOGS: Catalogs are $3 when shipped with an order or $5 if mailed separately within North America or $10 elsewhere. Prices and specifications are subject to change at any time without notice. A complimentary Catalog is included with all receiver orders.
BACK ORDERS: Because I manufacture most everything in my Catalog myself, replenishing stock may take a long time. I will make my best determination on whether to send a refund or backorder an item that is out of stock.
MAIL: Because I have other people bring me my post office box mail, I am not there to sign for mail. Sending me mail that must be signed for only creates a delay in getting mail to me. Therefore, DO NOT SEND ME MAIL THAT MUST BE SIGNED FOR LIKE CERTIFIED OR EXPRESS MAIL.
SHIPPING: BEFORE SHIPPING ANYTHING TO ME, CALL FOR INSTRUCTIONS.
NOTE: Catalog (19 Dec 07): This website is not a catalog. I'm sorry I can not send out free catalogs because I would soon go broke and have to increase other prices to cover them. My policy is that if you have a catalog and have studied it and have a question, I will be happy to help. But please, if you don't have a catalog, don't ask anything because I don't have the time to read it to you. Most questions are answered in the catalog. Please enjoy my websites if you have a computer. About 50% of my customers do not own a computer so I can't maintain both a catalog on the website and a hard copy. It would take too much time. No one offers the Thompson stuff I do. If you are serious about Thompson, my catalog will surely save you money in the long run. I must spend my time trying to catch up after 3 years of being unable to see well enough to make receivers. It is not fair to the people who have waited so patiently, to spend my time on one to one catalog readings.
