The Texas Ranger Tribute Thompson

NEW ISSUE - CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

During the untamed years of the Wild West, the Texas Rangers rode as lone defenders of justice. They were often the only protection on the frontier for settlers facing hostile Indians, cattle rustlers, bandits and gunslingers. And time after time, the men with the badges proved worthy of every challenge. Their exploits made the Rangers one of the most famous and respected crime-fighting forces anywhere in the world.

As the nation entered the 20th century, the state of Texas found itself on the frontlines of a Mexican revolution, a surge in bootlegging and a population boom sparked by the discovery of oil. The Rangers faced new breeds of criminal and new kinds of crime. But with the same courage and discipline that served them on the frontier, justice triumphed and the Texas Rangers secured their legacy as true American heroes.

Now America Remembers is pleased to announce an exclusive new Tribute honoring the unequaled bravery and dedication of the Texas Rangers: The Texas Ranger Tribute Thompson. This exciting new issue is the first time America Remembers has celebrated the Ranger legacy with a handsomely decorated, working Thompson Semi-Automatic submachine gun. Craftsmen commissioned specifically for this project decorate each working Thompson in sparkling 24-karat gold and nickel with a blackened patinated background to highlight the details of the artwork.

Not only is the Texas Ranger Tribute Thompson available exclusively from America Remembers, it is also being offered in cooperation with the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, Texas. For more than 40 years, their mission has been to honor distinguished Texas Rangers, and Rangers who have given their lives in the service of the people of Texas. They continue to promote, among present and future generations, a pride and interest in the Texas Rangers and the heritage of the American West.

The Thompson – “On the Side of Law and Order”

In 1915, as the brutal fighting of World War I raged, retired Army General John T. Thompson began research on a weapon that would put more firepower in the hands of Allied men on the frontlines. But the first Thompson submachine gun prototypes weren’t ready to ship until November 11, 1918… the day the Great War ended.

Thompson machine gun

In the absence of a global conflict, the Thompson was immediately touted as the ultimate crime fighting tool. It was described as an ideal weapon for the protection of large estates, ranches and plantations, which was certainly appealing to the Rangers, whose jurisdiction spread out for hundreds of miles in every direction. The promises of the Thompson being “simple, safe, sturdy and sure in action” proved true, allowing it to secure a distinctive history with the Texas Rangers in their brave efforts to uphold law and order. To this day the Thompson remains one of the most widely recognized and respected firearms in the world.

Only 300 Available

Only 300 Texas Ranger Tribute Thompsons will be issued in this strictly limited edition available exclusively through America Remembers. The distinguished history of the Texas Rangers has been more than 175 years in the making. Don’t miss your opportunity to own a classic American firearm honoring the contribution of these unwavering American heroes, who fought to preserve law and order in the Lone Star State.

Reservations for the Texas Ranger Tribute Thompson will be accepted in the order they are received. We will arrange delivery of your working Thompson through a licensed firearms dealer of your choice. And, as always, if you are not completely satisfied with your Tribute after personal inspection, you may return it in original, unfired condition within thirty days for a complete and courteous refund.

The Texas Ranger Tribute Thompson proudly honors the courage, sacrifice and service of these true legends of United States law enforcement. This is your chance to own a piece of Texas history, a piece of American history and an enduring testament to the strength and integrity of those who sacrificed all to preserve law and order.

On both sides of the Tribute is a highly-detailed Texas Ranger badge. Featuring the familiar Lone Star of Texas, it is inscribed with decorative scrollwork and etched with the proud designation of “Texas Ranger.”

 

Left side features a Ranger sitting atop his horse. For the Texas Rangers, horses were absolutely necessary for covering the wide expanses of land that made up the Lone Star State. The central image depicts a proud Texas Ranger posing alongside a trio of confiscated liquor stills. Alongside, a banner reads, “Prohibition” and “Gambling,” two of the greatest problems for the Rangers during the early decades of the 20th century. Prominently featured is a heroic portrait of Captain Manuel “Lone Wolf” Gonzaullas beside a flowing banner bearing his name. A legend among the Rangers, Gonzaullas earned his reputation for acting much like a one-man army against the rampant crime spree in the 1920s and 30s.

Right side features two Rangers pictured beside an official Ranger car and horse trailer, which both stand as fitting symbols of the two historic eras policed by the Rangers. Featured across the center is a sweeping banner reading, “Texas Rangers” and “They Knew Their Duty and They Did It,” separated by the iconic “star in a wheel” badge design. This famous quote comes from John S. “Rip” Ford, a legendary Ranger. Behind the banner, a field of oil derricks sprouts up like a city skyline. Also featured is a block of building fronts that represent the typical Texas boomtown. On the far right a group of five Rangers is featured standing at the ready with their weapons of choice, including a couple Thompsons. All artwork is featured in 24-karat gold and nickel with a blackened patinated background.

Make/Model:  Thompson 1927A-1 w/ Drum Magazine
Caliber:  .45 ACP
Edition Limit:  300
Decoration: Each Tribute Thompson is decorated in 24-karat gold and nickel artwork with blackened patinated highlights by craftsmen specifically commissioned by America Remembers.

Texas Ranger Tribute Colt .45 Pistol

"Their enemies were pretty good... (the Rangers) had to be better..."
                                  - Walter Prescott Webb

America Remembers is especially pleased to announce an exclusive new Tribute honoring the rich history of the Texas Rangers: The Texas Ranger Tribute Colt .45 Pistol. This exciting new Tribute is issued exclusively through America Remembers and in cooperation with the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, TX, a center dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of the Texas Rangers. It is also the first time we have celebrated the Texas Ranger legacy with a handsomely decorated, working Colt® Government Model® Pistol in caliber .45 ACP.

Craftsmen commissioned specifically for this project by America Remembers decorate each working Tribute in sparkling 24-karat gold and nickel artwork over a handsome blued steel background.

When Colt released the Model 1911 .45 pistol for the U.S. Army, it was embraced immediately by the Texas Rangers and proved a perfect fit. Developed by legendary gun maker John Moses Browning, the Colt .45 has become one of the most trusted sidearms of American military and law enforcement. Durable, powerful and easy to maintain, the Colt .45 proved itself reliable and trustworthy. And for the last century, many Texas Rangers have depended on this powerful .45 pistol in their continuing war on crime.

Only 300 Available

Only 300 Texas Ranger Tribute Pistols will be issued in this strictly limited edition. Reservations will be accepted in the order they are received. We will arrange shipment of your Tribute through the licensed firearms dealer of your choice. And, as always, if you are not satisfied with your Tribute, you may return it within 30-days in original condition for a complete and courteous refund.

Left side features a heroic, 24-karat gold portrait of Captain Manuel “Lone Wolf” Gonzaullas. A legend among the Rangers, Gonzaullas earned his reputation (and nickname) for acting much like a one-man army against the rampant criminal activity in the 1920s and 30s.

Prominently featured in the center of each side of the slide in stunning 24-karat gold are the words, “Texas Rangers.” Near the muzzle end on each side is a sprawling field of brushed nickel oil derricks, sprouting up like a city skyline.

On either side of the slide, a handsome, nickel Texas Ranger badge is featured, including the familiar Lone Star of Texas inscribed with decorative scrollwork and etched with the designation “Texas Ranger.”

The Tribute features handsome 24-karat gold decorations, including the hammer, slide stop, safety lock, grip screws, barrel bushing and magazine catch. Complementing the overall design are the handsome rosewood grips checkered in the classic “double diamond” pattern.

Right features a banner that reads, “They Knew Their Duty And They Did It,” a famous quote from John S. “Rip” Ford, a Ranger legend. Also featured is a row of Texas Rangers posing in front of barrels of confiscated bootleg liquor, representing their legendary fight against crime during the Prohibition Era of the 1920s.

Tribute Revolver


LIMITED SUPPLY

There is a saying in Texas:

"One Riot, One Ranger."

History is filled with accounts of legendary Texas Rangers who brought law and order to towns torn by blood feuds, and Rangers who fought bravely against bands of outlaws and Indian war parties to protect the citizens of Texas. Time and again, they proved that one person in the right could triumph over even the greatest odds.

Capt. Leander McNelly:

"There are only two kinds of people for us - outlaws and law-abiding. Treat these law-abiding folks with all respect, regardless of color or size. Don't enter a house unless the man invites you in. Don't take a an ear of corn or melon unless he tells you to. If his dog barks at you, get away from it. Don't shoot it. Let them know we're their friends sent down to help them."

The backstrap of the pistol features the inscription,
"They Knew Their Duty and They Did It."

On the recoil shield is the official logo of the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, Texas, which houses a spectacular collection of Texas Ranger artifacts and is dedicated to preserving the Texas Ranger heritage for future generations.

The cylinder features portraits of six legendary Texas Rangers......Maj. John Jones, Capt. Leander McNelly, Sgt. John B. Armstrong, Capt. Bill McDonald, Capt. Dan Roberts, Sgt. James B. Gillett.

An ardent supporter of Colt's "repeaters," McCulloch was widely regarded as one of the two most fearless men on the Texas frontier. The other was Ranger Jack Hays, another great Colt enthusiast.

With the presentation of the "McCulloch Dragoon," Samuel Colt initiated a lifelong tradition that made his name synonymous with fine firearms throughout the 19th century. He had presented firearms to illustrious contemporaries before, accompanied by letters,

This much is certain: the earliest surviving inscribed presentation Colt is Ben McCulloch's Transition Dragoon, serial number 1337.
