The following is a release from the Auto-Ordnance Corporation:
For more than 100 years, the “Chicago Typewriter,” the time-honored submachine gun, has been a favorite among collectors and shooting enthusiasts. Now, Kahr Firearms Group has given the semi-auto version a more authentic look with the introduction of their new barrel design on the Thompson T1-14 carbine.

With a barrel length of just 16.5 inches, it is 1.5 inches shorter than the existing T1 models with the 18-inch barrels.
The .45 ACP caliber T1-14 has a permanently affixed Cutts compensator, which lengthens the finned barrel length to 16.5 inches, and puts the overall length for the carbine at 39 inches from buttstock to muzzle.
The BATFE recently approved the permanently affixed Cutts compensator as a part of the barrel. The pinned Cutts compensator offered on the 18-inch barrel models is not considered part of the barrel. This model also features a blade front and open rear adjustable sight and weighs 12.5 pounds. The fixed stock is crafted in luxurious polished American Walnut and has a vertical foregrip.
MSRP on the T1-14 is $1,461.
Another addition to the shorter barrel 1927A-1 collection is the T1B-14, which specs the same as the T1-14, but instead of a walnut fixed stock, it comes with a detachable buttstock with vertical foregrip. Both models are available in .45 ACP and ship with one 20-round stick magazine.
The MSRP on the T1B-14 is $1,910.
