    Our take:  The all-new KING ARMS fully licensed THOMPSON M1A1 AEG is the most powerful Thompson on the market, and is one of the newest King Arms AEGs available.  Even more exciting, perhaps, is the fact that this is hands down the best bang-for-your-buck value you're EVER going to see on a King Arms manufactured metal gearbox AEG.

    The next least expensive King Arms AEG will run close to $350, and that's the LOWEST pricing on the market.  But because we purchased in extremely high volumes, we are proud to say that we can present this all-new King Arms Thompson to our customers for an unheard of price, BELOW $200 with FREE SHIPPING.

    We're not surprised to see that the King Arms M1A1 Thompson AEG easily dominates the original Tokyo Marui M1A1, a performance and quality benchmark for the Thompson model.  We expected nothing less, either, from such a high-performance, high quality brand like King Arms.

    The rifle features FULLY LICENSED trademarks, and as advertised on the box, shoots with phenomenal power and accuracy.  After a ton of shooting around, followed by some performance testing, we are thoroughly impressed with this rifle, and we're sure you will be too.  And for the price, it's an absolute no-brainer!

    -Full metal gearbox with high performance components
    -King Arms M.I.M. branded high speed steel gears
    -Printed THOMPSON trademarks; fully licensed for maximum authenticity
    -This AEG is 100% compatible with Tokyo Marui parts
    -Premium "simulated wood grain finish" grips and stock, intertwined with a metal Upper Receiver means this replica is realistic down to the T
    -Adjustable hop-up (TM-compatible hop-up unit) and selectable fully automatic/semi automatic firing modes, along with a functional safety mode
    -Revolutionary patented BAXS shooting system integrated into design for extremely high performance shooting with enhanced accuracy
    -516 FPS using 0.12g BBs (do NOT use 0.12g BBs in this rifle); 410-430 FPS using 0.20g BBs.  This firing power ensures that you will DOMINATE any airsoft game.  Accuracy and power dramatically better than that of TM M1A1 Thompson during comparison testing
    -Premium battery and wall charger included
    -2-way adjustable rear sight
    -BOTTOM LINE:  A high performance King Arms AEG, COMPLETE with battery and charger for less money than a stock Tokyo Marui M1A1 without battery or charger.  This gun package is loaded with performance and value!

    Operation:  Electric Automatic
    Firing Modes:  Semi-automatic and Full-automatic
    Muzzle Velocity: 390-410 FPS (w/ 0.20g BBs)
    Magazine: 60rd standard magazine
    Gearbox:  Full metal
    Barrel: Full metal
    Hop-up:  Adjustable
    Weight:  8 pounds

    Ammo type:  Seamless 0.20g or heavier (0.23g, 0.25g, 0.26g, 0.28g, etc) BBs.  For maximum performance and accuracy, Airsoft Megastore recommends GoldenBall ProSlick BBs which carry perfect spherical consistency and density, available at Airsoft Megastore for the lowest price on the market, guaranteed.Package includes: Rifle, rechargeable battery, wall charger, instruction manual, 60rd magazine

    Battery Charger Recommendation:  Although this fully automatic airsoft rifle comes with a standard wall charger to charge the battery, Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery(overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly).  Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800% faster charging), but more importantly,also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.

    Great gun
    By: Brendan

    "This really is a very good gun. I actually had to just sent mine back cuz it jammed a lot but I don't think that's very common it was probably just a single defect. But the few games I played with it since I bought it a few weeks ago were amazing. Pros: Accurate High rate of fire Comes with 2000 milliamperes battery so lasts a long time Good fps for a competition Looks very sexy and realistic Weighted nice All metal except wood parts Plastic wood looks like real wood even from close up Cons: Huge orange tip (can break off easy) Comes with plastic mag (reccomend buying hi cap or drum) Crappy sounding cocking hammer Safety switches are kind of flimsy feeling Plastic wood that squeaks a little All over a great gun would definitely reccomend"

    Jesus Made This
    By: Noah Lynn

    "Ive been playing airsoft for a couple of years now, i have been in several tournaments and out of all the my AEGs, this one is by far the best. It has insane accuracy w/ hop up to adjust, good rpm, good rails, the battery lasts a long time so if you fully charge it before going to battle for a full day, you dont have to worry about it dying on you, and metal gearbox so you dont have to worry about gears stripping. Buy it now before doorbuster on this gun ends!"

    "Ive been wanting a Thompson for quite some time, recently i was in a sports store an this modle was running for close to $300. but when i found out it was for sale on here, had no choice. I Loved the weight on this gun. i Prefer Heavy weight, standard cap mags. This gun shoots so hard an powerful, it even has a bit of recoil! i thought at first that i wouldnt want to use this weapon but after shooting it, i may choose to re-consider... All in all, get this gun. the orange tip pretty much just wraps around the barrell. the standard cap mag is ABS but not bad at all. very very good gun!"

    An outstanding, top-of-the-line AEG.
    By: Trenton Stone

    "I've had this gun for about two or three years, and I must say that it is one of the best AEGs you can get out there. First of all, this gun is extremely accurate. You can hit a target about thirty feet away or so with pinpoint precision. Also, the large type 8.4v battery gives this gun a TON of power. I was clocking in at about 400 to 420 feet per second on a near-dead battery with this monster. This gun can go through ammo quick, due to its high rate of fire. I would recommend getting some extra Hi-Cap mags with this, however I don't believe drum mags would be necessary. The only downside with this gun is that it weighs in at about eight pounds, which after a long day of airsofting, can definitely take it's toll on your energy. However, it is a very sturdy and stable gun that can easily withstand rough play. It sounds very mean as well, especially on full auto. I can definitely see how it is becoming increasingly popular. Whether you're a rookie or veteran airsofter, this gun's outstanding performance and reliability will astound every time."

    The only gun you need.
    By: White Batman

    "I may not have gotten the gun from here, but its the same gun and it is amazing! The guy at the store says that he goes airsofting often, he has this and he will never get rid of it because it is the best thing hes ever bought. It is accurate, can shoot at long(-ish)range, has power beind it, and real power. It hit 516 with .12s and 400 with .20s. it has a real good weight to it, and will be the best universal gun youll ever have. You basically turn into the support gunner with this, and if you learn how the BBs fly when you are shooting it, you can get really accurate. Im going to use this in battle for the first time at Bad Karma Airsoft Field Noob Day Downside:(doesnt effect gun at all):The "woow" is obviously plastic(but cool) and it doesnt come with a sling."

    "This was my first AEG after getting a KWC colt delta elite springer (also good) and this gun is awesome. It shoots really good and tears up cans and other assorted objects really good and empties the clip in seconds. I recommend getting a lot of BBs."

    exceeds expectations!
    By: Teddy

    "This gun is outstanding. to start the feel of the gun is amazing, i was worried about the plastic parts for the wood being flimsy, this is not the case. it has a realistic weight, which i love because i know its not flimsy. the fps is something to be admired, shooting a consistent 415 or so with 20s. but what really blows me away is the accuracy, im able to hit a flag pole in my backyard from 100 feet without a problem. one issue is the 60 round clip is not enough for this weapon. i highly suggest getting another high cap mag with this. it fires at 700 rounds per minute, so the 60 round clips gone within seconds. the battery doesent need upgrading, it performs well with the gun and at 2000mah it lasts all day long. overall i have to say if you have 200$ and want a serious gun, get this weapon, just be sure you get an extra mag."

    Wonderful gun!
    By: Kevin

    "I first fell in love with the Thompson when I was playing COD WaW. Once my friends started to get involved in airsoft, I knew I had to be the one with a WW2 gun (specifically the Thompson).I got this gun this past Christmas. I have been in a couple battles with it(at least 7). I love to put this gun into full auto and light someone up, which I have done. There have been very few problems with it. The first one is that it wont fire Semi sometimes. It has a very easy solution: Fire a few rds. in full auto and it will work again like a charm!(Very rare....I actually think it happens to many AEGs.) The other is the pistel grip can be a little loose. All you have to do is just get a screw driver and tighten the screw at the bottom. Overall, this gun is great for its price. I am glad I bought this gun BUT! you will NEED to buy more mags. The 40 rd. clip is pathetic! I bought a 380 rd. for 20 bucks at my army/navy store. I would recomend this gun to anyone and for the price, it is a steal!"

    Simply Great
    By: John Cunningahm

    " In the past 6 weeks I've purchased: 1) 3 Crossman Pulse R76, JG M4A1 with scope and flashlight, G&G Air Raider with scope and flashlights, 2 King Arms M1A1 Thompsons So the kids love the "glam" of the JG and G&G. Oh they do look good. But this Thomson is awesome. It shoots straight and very hard. The other guns work very well So my review is not really a comparison but what you are getting for the money. In most shooting, you shoot, see the BBs and make small adjustments to hit your target. With the Thompson, you are generally on target the first shot. And boy does it shoot straight. The battery in the stock is a real plus and the HUGE 8.4V 2000 mha battery lasts forever. I run 11.1v 2250 MHa battery and it worked just fine, ROF went up from 800 to 1100 which is what I expect. I would recommend getting the 380 magazine if you like to shoot full auto. The gun comes with a 60 round that requires no winding."

    "My little brother has the plastic version of this gun and the only problem was the slide cock (broke) besides that it still works very well and he enjoys it...I am more the sniper but based of my own experience the plastic version is a great gun, and he will dominate with the metal version"

    King Arms Thompson
    By: Jeff

    "I'll say this first, I'm not a regular airsoft player or play against other people, I have been messing around with airsoft guns, mostly springer pistols and low end aegs for 10 years or so. So this was going to be my first high end aeg and I've always like the real Thompson, especially the M1A1 from World War II. First, out of the box, i did appreciate the weight and the solidity of it. The upper receiver though made from a cheaper, lighter metal doesn't feel cheap, the charging handle has a spring that can be pulled back and released, making a cool sound, but doesn't have any effect on the gun or visa versa (however, relatively easy for those more technical to attach it to the piston for recoil affect, see youtube). The lower receiver is plastic but is thick and durable. The wooden stocks and handle are plastic as well. The faux wood actually looks good, my only complaint is that there are rather obvious seams where the two pieces are connected, but again, I wouldn't call it "cheap". The gun itself seams pretty powerful and accurate. However that is comparing it to the low end wal-mart M4's I used to mess around with. I've had it for about a year now, ran around 2000 bb's through it and still seams to be as good as it was out of the box. At closer range, 10ft or so, will go all the way through a pop can, at 30ft will still go in but not come out, at can still hit them at 50ft. I've fired entire 60 round mags through it with no skipping or jamming, and from what I've seen about 400-500 rpm . But like i said I've never messed around with a very high end aeg like a Mauri so I can't say this aeg is great, possibly its actually underpowered, but for a 150 bucks pretty good, especially for someone like me that just likes Thompsons in general. Defiantly a cool toy to have on a shelf but couldn't say if its the choice for a hardcore player. One last note, this gun is kinda tedious to break down, there are a lot of very small parts that get lost easily, and you need like 4 different wrenches. And I've heard people say they don't like the lever magazine release, but i think its ergonomic, the two selector switches are kinda a pain but come on the gun design is almost 100 years old"

    I love it.
    By: Mike Butler

    "This video above is not the gun. this one is a bit different. my biggest disappointment was the magazine is not metal. it is a strong plastic. this gun is the closest you can get to the real thing. it beats out the other thompsons because it is more powerful. this thing is heavy and feels like the real thing. it is EXTREMELY accurate. has a built in tightbore so if you aim down the sights like you would with the real one, it will go straight every time, so very powerful, very accurate. this is only a 60 round mag. you will need more or a drum.

    The store is amazing. I have found there items that I could not find in other stores which makes it the best. I have made questions and inquires about products and the customer service has responded super fast with accurate answers. All my products have arrived in excellent conditions in spite of other stores. My last product came late because it was rescheduled but that was UPS fault I think. I would like to thank Matthew for his exceptional customer service. Whenever you need help, please try to contact him. My advice, buy in Airsoft Megastore, they have coupons and the widest variety of airsoft products. RandyLoy, USA
    I ordered a gun sling a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, one of the clips broke. After a few email correspondings with a customer service representative named Jun (my emails did not show a last name), AMS sent me a replacement sling for free. I did not even have to send my clip back. AMS is a terrific store and I plan on doing more business with them. They were polite, efficient, and just a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Airsoft Megastore to anyone. mskanwischer, USA
    Airsoft Megastore is The Best Airsoft Website Out There (I Think) and i Will Always Be Loyal to AMS and Order Almost All of my Gear From Them. The Customer Service is Also Amazing, Jun my Customer Service Representative Has Helped Me With Anything i Needed Help With, Especially My Order Problem (Had 2 Magazines Missing from Order) and Jun Helped Me With The Problem, and Now The Mags Have Been Shipped To Me. Thank You So Much AMS and Jun. Ethan1214, Saskatchewan, Canada
    I love that Airsoft Megastore has videos of most any information you will need to learn and care for your products. I purchased an AEG for my son and in short order, unfortunately, it began grinding after brief use. I emailed for warranty repair with symptoms and with 24 hours (22 to be exact) I received an email explaining possible causes with a video like for tuning the gun. I had the gun working again within 15 minutes, avoiding returning the gun and the mess associated with returns\repairs. Excellence on Sean's part to help out a first time customer of theirs. Highly recommend. bucfanjeff, USA
    Everything worked great, shipping was super fast. I am very pleased and won't hesitate to order through airsoft megastore again. rob_riley, USA
    I loved buying from airsoft megastore because the employees helped me recover my tracking number and told me where the package was at, I would love to buy from airsoft megastore again! Battlefield4Rule, USA
