Today’s artifact from NHAM’s collection is the Ingram Model 6 “Police”. At first glance, the Model 6 resembles the Thompson submachine gun. However, there are quite some differences. The Model 6 was manufactured between 1949 and 1952 in the USA by the Police Ordnance Company. Domestic law enforcement agencies were looking for a more cost effective replacement for the Thompson, which resulted in the Model 6. It is also lighter at 3kg compared to 5kg for the Thompson. The Model 6 is available in either 9x19mm Luger, .45 ACP or .38 Super and is fed from a 30 round stick magazine only. It fires at a cyclic rate of 600 rounds. A military variant was also produced which had a plain wooden forearm, whereas the “Police” variant has the vertical wooden fore grip which can be seen in the pictures. The only safety on the Model 6 is a notch in which to lock the bolt by the cocking handle. The Model 6 does not have a fire selector switch. A short pull of the trigger would fire the gun in semi auto mode, while depressing the trigger fully activates full auto fire. A later variant, the Model 7, was manufactured with an external fire selector. The Ingram Model 6 “Police”, because every artifact has a story. @nationalhistoricalarmsmuseum #coolguns #militaryhistory #military #pewpew #2a #historicalfirearms #gunpics #veterans #guns #firearms #history #gunfacts #gun #gunlife #canada #gunlovers #museum #gunsofinstagram #ingram #model6 #police #carbine #fullauto #thompsonlookalike #45acp #usa #lawenforcement
