M1A1 THOMPSON SMG MOD

This gun is semi-automatic and works really well. The butt-stock is real, magazine is metal air soft mag: Everything else is modded. Used aluminum, brass, steel and some plastic. Many hours spent on this project. I have steel body and a aluminum body. This is an earlier photo - some changes made since.

Still needs tidying up, deburing, sandblasting, woodfinishing and repainting. Would prefer tuf-coat finish but its expensive.

This is a second one I made for myself. Previous work mounting the mag and trigger framing needs tidying up .... ejector opening to be cut, grip shaped, etc etc

It's a suppressed version (they did exist - sort of with a m3 grease gun suppressor).

Nice work there :thumbsup: You know a drum magfed version would be the ultimate in PB coolness. Forget about modern assualt weapon markers, the old "Tommy Gun" just works somehow.

I didn't really like the Thompson, but this was a fun project.

It's the iconic WW2 SMG.

The Thompson was used in WW2 by the Canadians, British and Americans. It was still in use in the Vietnam war (1920'S -1970 about a 50 year span).

In WW2 it was part of the kit of special forces such as the new British commandos as well as the USA/Canadian devil's brigade. There is even a famous pic of Winston Churchill brandishing a 1928 with a drum mag.

This mod is real easy to use with the paintball mask on due to the angle of the stock.
