If you’re a fan of historically relevant military firearms, Tactical Gear Distributors (TGD) is starting a program that may interest you. TGD is calling it their Vintage Military Arms Program, and through it you’ll be able to purchase military firearms of the past. David Nau, TGD president, said of the new program “The Vintage Military Arms Program provides a great opportunity to own a piece of American history. These are the firearms that your fathers and grandfathers relied on in the fields of battle.”

Guns being included are Springfield Armory’s M1A rifles, Auto Ordnance’s M1 Carbine, Inland Manufacturing’s M1A1 Paratrooper Carbine, and Thompson’s 1927 A-1 Tommy Gun. TGD is a wholesaler and says these firearms and others will be made available to stores through fast delivery.

Whether you’re a gun store owner, dealer, or just want to take a look at TGD’s website, visit It’s great to see companies get involved increasing production and sales of guns with historical importance to our nation; even better when you’re able to own and shoot them yourself. Which gun is your favorite from our nation’s military history?

    Too bad we can't get some of the M1 Garands back that we loaned to South Korea.

      @Rusty Shackleford The one Obmaton barred from re-entry were actually sold, and the US has the right of first refusal to buy them back.

    None of these are the actual historical arms The Springfield is an improved Garand (because it has a box magazine), but is not a Garand. The Auto Ordinance has a spotty reputation for reliability, almost entirely due to a nonspec magazine and magazine well; and again, these are remakes, not originals. The Inland I have seen but not seen reviewed yet, and it comes in the regular configuration as well as the paratrooper configuration, and it runs just north of a grand. The Inland company is not the original Inland Division of GM, but a new company in Dayton,that claims it is making a mil-spec reproduction of the inland rifle, and that its parts are interchangeable with originals. Quite a boast.
