Full description


The weapon has been built with high quality materials, giving it a great finish both inside and out. Externally the weapon features a high quality alloy receiver, iron-sights and magazines, with a real wood walnut hard wood stock, grip and pistol grip. This is not just an M1A1 military Thompson with a drum magazines, the receiver has been redesigned to faithfully replicate the gangster classic. Internally the weapon features all the advancements you would expect from a more modern Airsoft replica, with a rear wired gearbox with silver wiring, adjustable hop-up unit for range and accuracy, as well as an electronic trigger for a better fire response.

The weapon also features adjustable Ironsights just like the real weapon, along with front and rear sling loops for attaching a variety of sling setups.

The weapon features a pneumatic blowback system, with the weapons dust cover connected to the internal workings of the gearbox, meaning that when you fire the weapon the bolt comes back adding to the realism of the weapon with not only a visual look, but the audible slap of the charging handle coming back.

This weapon is perfect for those Airsoft Skirmishers who are looking for a weapon as part of their World War 2 load-out, or for those who want to own a little piece of history.
