Trez, if you mean the Browning Model 1917 machine gun, you are correct, in that it was the first weapon, originally designed for the 30-06 cartridge, to be adopted by the U.S. military.

The M1919 "Annihilator" was changed to sub-machine gun.

M1921 Thompsons were sold in small quantities to the United States Postal Inspection Service and to the United States Marine Corps..

Fine.. Two models of the Thompson were adopted in 1938... The M1928A1 and the M1.

Sorry, it was in 1919 that the model 1918 Thompson was changed from the Annihilator to sub-machine gun.

Trez, you are correct that the M1 Thompson sub-machine gun was the first sub-machine gun adopted by the U.S. military. However, the Model 1928 or 1928A1 Thompson sub-machine gun was never adopted by the U.S. military, it was only procured.
