Thompson Auto-Ordnance has landed a series of GI-style guns in a salute to the upcoming anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy in World War II.

In remembrance of Operation Overlord, which saw more than 160,000 Allied troops descend on the coast of France on June 6, 1944, Auto-Ord has unveiled limited edition, commemorative models of their Thompson .45 ACP semi-auto rifle, 1911A1 .45ACP pistol, and M1 .30-caliber Carbine. Each carries custom engravings by Outlaw Ordnance of West Monroe, Louisiana.

“America’s brave warriors were called to do the impossible, beginning the struggle to wrest Europe from the hands of Nazi tyranny,” says the Pennsylvania-based company of the D-Day invasion. “Auto-Ordnance offers this series to honor the many American soldiers who fought so others could be free again.”

The commemorative “Ranger Thompson” is dedicated to the memory of the elite U.S. Army Rangers who scaled the cliffs at Pointe du Hoc to attack a key German position on the morning of the invasion.
