This rather unique rendition of the Thompson submachine gun is a nifty little spring gun for some casual backyard plinking or knocking down targets in your basement. Being relatively lightweight, compact and easy to cock it is ideal for teaching your youngster how to shoot. While not being an exact replica of Thompson M1A1 used extensively throughout WWII, this gun is an interesting concept of what the Thompson would look like if it were scaled down and modernized with an enclosed mag well, AR type selector and accessory rails. Accessory rails can be found along the top and right hand side of the receiver allowing for the attachment of a red dot sight as well as a flashlight or laser sight.
When using .2g BBs this gun proved to be surprisingly accurate at distance and was able to connect with torso sized targets at 80 feet quite consistently. Power is a respectable 200 feet per second with a .2g BB so it is more than capable of knocking a soda can on its... well, can.
The magazine has a capacity of 23 rounds with an internal reservoir which holds an additional 100 rounds. Once all of the rounds in the spring loaded section of the magazine have been depleted, simply pull down on the spring loaded follower and let 23 more BBs roll in from the reservoir. Release the spring and you are ready to go at it again!
