    Our take:  The 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.  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.  This rifle features fully licensed trademarks.  And for the price, it's an absolute no-brainer!

    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

    Package includes:  Rifle, 450rd drum magazine, 60rd magazine, battery, wall charger

    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.

    "Ok, this gun uses .2 bb's. This isn't the 'chicago typewriter' either. The Chicago Typewriter is the 1928 model. The M1A1 DID use drum mags. 20 round and 50 round. The Rangers who fought at Dieppe (before Normany invasion) and the PTO (Pacific Theater of Operations) used them. This is not a weapon for a modern airsofter, as it was built to specifications of the WW II impressionists and won't keep up with a m4 that has a hi cap box mag. Do your research before writing reviews on guns you know nothing about! This gun was built strictly for WW II impressionist airsofters, and it was first tested out by us. It's has great use in a WW II game, where only WWII weapons are used."

    Drum mag
    By: Eric

    "Originally the thompson supplied to the army came with drum magazines in the cases but the army didn't like the rattling of the bullets in the resevoir so they issued stick magazines, I have used a real thompson before and the drum mag does make a rattle and is heavy as HELL"

    one of the best guns i have ever bought
    By: jon strickler

    "so this was my first airsoft gun i purchased. and it was the best one i have ever purchased. the gun is full metal, and has a metal gear box. the fps canget up to 475 with .12's, and 390-400 with .2's, and 350 with .25's. this airsoft gun has a great iron sight, and has a high rate of fire. you can rely on this weapon with not breaking on you, and allowing you to look sexy while playing and owning! this weapon is a great replica of the real thompon. basically this weapon just kicks a$$! its amazing, i love it, and i have had it since december of 2009, and it still works just as good as it did when i bought it. A must buy weapon if you dont mind not having the ability to add atachments. cause i dont, you dont need any atachments for such a great weapon!"

    Beast for ten minutes
    By: HonestAirsofter

    "Pros Rate of fire Looks mag capacity Fps Accurate Cons Heavy Heavy Sights Don't own it bu i borrowed it from a friend. It is beast on everything except the sights and the weight. It was awesome but then i realized it had no sling. Try to hold a nine pound weight anf 300 bbs and adrenaline while you are running through the wood. Suggestions Buy a sling. I know its a shame to ruin a classic but buy a red dot scope. "

    Drum Mags
    By: Dale Manis

    "To the guy below me(or whoever said the U.S. army didn't use drum mags) Actually, the U.S. army during WWII, did use drum mags, but they were very rare. You hardly ever see them in pictures of the soldiers, but they did have a few."

    Corrections on terms
    By: Dale Darr

    "I came to set straight the terms that were miss marked to the Thompson SMG. First of all, This is the first time I've EVER heard the Thompson known as the Chicago typewriter, I was of the impression it was known as the " Chicago Piano ", Tommy Gun " one Glaring mistake, the M1A1 Thompson, The Real Steel SMG, Did not allow for a drum magazine to be used, just the long stick magazines Here's an Idea, get the M1921 Thompson with the vertical foregrip, Remove it, then Attach a Horizontal forestock from an M1A1 and there you have it, the M1928 Thompson SMG, that was the last Thompson model to accept the Drum Mag, other than the M1. I rate the cyma M1A1 an accurate looking Thompson SMG, w/o the drum mag "
