This is another one from my Pop's collection. With a 12" OAL, 5" barrel, and 36 round mags, it's a great lookin pistol that has a nice feel and balance...

I'm sure the "greaser" inspired the design of the Tec 9 in many ways. The M3 just couldn't get out from under the shadow of the Thompson in its day. It was a pretty big shadow of course...

George Hyde of General Motors's Inland Division was given the task of designing the new weapon, while Frederick Sampson, Inland Division's chief engineer, was responsible for preparing and organizing tooling for production of the United States Submachine Gun, Cal. .45, M3.

Officials at Maryland's Aberdeen Proving Ground were given the requirements which called for an all-metal weapon of sheet metal construction in .45 ACP caliber, designed for fast and inexpensive production with a minimum of machining, and featuring a dual auto and semi-automatic fire capability, a heavy bolt to keep the cylic rate under 500rpm, and the ability to place 90 percent of all shots fired from a standing position in full-automatic mode on a 6x6 foot target at a range of 50 yards. The benchmark for testing the M3's performance would be the M1928A1 Thompson SMG.

Intended as a replacement for the .45-caliber Thompson series of submachine guns, the M3 and its improved successor, the M3A1 began to replace the Thompson in first-line service in late 1944 and early 1945. Due to delays caused by production issues and approved specification changes, the M3/M3A1 saw relatively little combat use in World War II.
