M1A1 Thompson.jpg

Hey guys, and welcome to another of my monthly reviews. Today we are looking at the M1A1 Thompson used by the United States Of America in World War II, The Korean War and was used for a short while during the Vietnam War. There were many names for it such as the ''Trench Boom", "Chicago Typewriter", "The Chopper" and the name that we all know the "Tommy Gun". Many variants of the Thompsons had different parts, design, ammo and rate of fire.

 

Instructions - http://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-M1A1-Thompson-Instructions/

 

Anyway let's talk about the M1A1 Thompson, it's not my own design since I followed the instructions from Rofl495 and after I finished building it, I made quite of a lot of adjustments to make it look a lot better than it originaly did.

 

The differences between my M1A1 and Rofl495 M1A1:

. I have made the stock slightly smaller so you have a better eye view through the iron sights

· I have made the hand grip at the front more comfortable to grip with.     

. Rol495 shoots grey connectors, mine doesn't because it is just a model       

 

Good Points

· Comfortable Hand Grip

· Good Iron Sights

· Removable Magazine

. Very Realistic

 

Bad Points

· The Stock Is Flimsy

. Uses A Lot Of Cut Pieces

 

Specifications For A Real Thompson

· Designed - 1917 and 1920   

· Number Built - 2,700,000

· Ammo - 11.43×23mm 45 ACP

· Rate Of Fire - 600 to 1500 Rounds Per Minute

· Powered - Blowback and Blish Lock

· Magazine - 20 or 30 Round Box Magazine (The M1A1 and M1 Thompson do not accept the 50 or 100 Round Drum Magazine)

· Range - Between 55 & 220 yards

 

Overall I really love this. I like the feel you get when you handle it and it is very well detailed. RolfI495 has made one of the very best M1A1 Thompson on Instructables because he made instructions and it looks fantastic

 

In Call Of Duty: Zombies, the M1A1 Thompson is available in all World At War maps and in the re-mastered maps in Black Ops. In WAW it is available from the Mystery Box for 950 points and also it can be bought off the wall for 1200 points and as for BO it can only be obtained off the wall. Speed Cola will cut reload time to just 1.5 seconds and Double Tap will increase the rate of fire as it is slow. When it is Pack-A-Punched for 5000 points it becomes the "Gibs-O-Matic" where you get more ammo, more damage, bigger magazine and a higher rate of fire. A fairly good Pack-A-Punched weapon against the zombies but the ammo can run low, but the good thing is ammo can be bought off the wall.

 

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

This is probably one of the most accurate looking Thompsons on the site. The stock (and maybe trigger guard) could maybe be cleaned up a little, but other than that, it looks really great.
Good job!
