    Just because it came first doesn't mean it's better. STG44 VS AK47...


    And I still stand by that while the Tommy gun is an American classic, The Grease Gun is better.

    the Thompson is better IMO because everything was machined on it vs. being stamped like the M3 Grease Gun. this equated to being cheaper and easier to manufacture vs. the time and expense of machining parts. and from an economic standpoint, in war the M3 was an excellent firearm for what it was designed for. and even after seventy years, it's still cool too.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the tommy gun. But it's not very ergonomic, it's rate of fire is too fast, and from what my Uncle tells me, it jammed alot in inclimate conditions.

    probably had some problems with the fact it was made from machined parts and the tolerances were tighter, so getting dirt into it, could cause problems. the M3 also had it's teething problems in the beginning, and they made some minor changes, becoming the M3A1. it just didn't get into the war until close to the end of it, but was still used in the Korean War and also to some degree even the Viet Nam war.
