The Ingram Model 6 is a .45 ACP caliber submachine gun that was manufactured from 1949 through 1952 by Police Ordnance Company of Los Angeles, California.
Although the Model 6 has an appearance similar to the Thompson submachine gun
, it was intended to be sold as a low cost alternative for domestic law enforcement agencies in the United States. Normally produced with a wood stock, pistol grip and front grip, the overall length is approximately 30" with the barrel
being 9". The magazine is a "stick" design with a capacity of 30 rounds.
A Model 7 version was made in 1952, the difference being that it was able to fire from a closed bolt and having a fire mode selector on. Only a few of these were made in the 1950s.
