There seems to be SO VERY FEW of these anymore. Yeah, I know, 9x19mm has dominated the pistol-cartridge market world wide for a long time, but still. The only ones I can think of of the top of my head are:

The Thompson, which is basically obsolete, though still a good design.

The Grease Gun, which is also obsolete, but is easy to mass produce. Other than that, it has a very, very low cyclic and was unpopular with the troops.

The MAC-10, which is a very compact machine pistol. Despite the almost uniform assumption amongst non-shooters that this gun is a "crime gun" that one is likely to find on the street, I don't believe that they have been produced for at least ten years.

There's also the S&W Model 76. It's a simple stamped metal design, harking back to the World War II idea of mass producing cheap bullet hoses and getting them to the troops as fast as possible. It's still effective, though, but no longer in production.

And the new H&K UMP-45, which is still new.

Are there any other .45 subguns out there today? If you can, please post a pic too.

There were also the Reisings, the other Ingrams (M6,M7 & M8) and an interesting Hyde-Inland M2. These are all older designs (WWII and post WWII).
.45ACP uppers can be had for M16-style subguns.

The Uzi also came chambered in a number of cartridges including 45 acp. And for a lucky few that own registered receivers, interchange ability between 9mm and the forty five.

Don't forget the awesome beauty of the Stemple 76/45! This gun is a .45 copy of the S&W 76/Swedish K. Full auto only, safety notch and looks like it was built out of scrap from a plumbers yard.

They are very reliable however and fun to shoot. They are still reasonably priced as Class 3 items go.
