Despite efforts to simplify its design, the M1A1 Thompson submachine gun remained time-consuming and expensive to manufacture. The development of a cost-effective alternative resulted in the M3 "Grease Gun." Produced by General Motors' Guide Lamp Division, the M3 was a stamped, sheet-metal substitute for the primarily milled Thompson. Its riveted and welded construction made it originally designed as a disposable small arm, intended to be used and then discarded once inoperative. This simple weapon also allowed for the installation of a conversion kit—a replacement bolt and barrel, recoil springs, and a magazine adapter would change the weapon’s original .45 caliber to 9 mm Parabellum.

Additional Information:

  • Historical Context: This figurine represents the practical approach taken by U.S. forces during World War II to equip soldiers with effective and cost-efficient weapons, highlighting the M3 Grease Gun’s role in armored units.
  • Collector's Appeal: Ideal for military history enthusiasts and collectors of WWII memorabilia, this piece offers a realistic portrayal of the innovative armament used by American tankers.

Add this meticulously crafted U.S. Tanker with M3 Grease Gun figurine to your collection to honor the resourcefulness and adaptability of the soldiers who served in armored divisions during World War II.
