Hey guys, this is replica of the M1A1 Thompson sub machine gun used by the United States Of America in WW2, The Korean War and was also used in the Vietnam War. It was also used by Tom Hanks (Capt. John H Miller) in the 1998 film Saving Private Ryan and if you haven't seen it, just go watch it, it is one of the best WW2 films ever made in film history.
There were many different models of the Thompson like the M1919, M1921, M1923, M1927, M1927A1, M1927A3, M1927A5, M1928, M1928A1, M1 and M1A1, basically all these different types of the Thompsons had different parts, design, ammo and rate of fire. In the old days, there were many names for the Thompson such as the ''Trench Boom", "Chicago Typewriter", "The Chopper" and the classic name that we all know the "Tommy Gun".
Instructions Coming Soon
Anyway let's talk about the M1A1 Thompson, it's not my own design since I followed the instructions from Rofl495. After I finished building it, I made few adjustments to make it look a lot better.
The few differences between my M1A1 Thompson and Rofl495 M1A1 Thompson:
. 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
· Comfortable Hand Grip
· Good Iron Sights
· Removable Magazine
. Very Realistic
· The stock is flimsy
. Uses a lot of cut parts

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 appears only in the maps Nacht Der Untoten, Verruckt, Shi No Numa and Der Riese in the original Call Of Duty: World At War from the Mystery Box for 950 points or 1200 points of the wall. in the re-mastered versions in Call Of Duty: Black Ops it is only available off the wall. The M1927 only appears in Call Of Duty: Black Ops II in the maps Mob Of Dead of the wall for 1500 points. In Origins it is only obtained from Mystery Box for 950 points. They are both fairly good Pack-A-Punch weapons combined with Speed Cola and Double Tap or Double Tap 2.0 and the exception that ammo can be bought off the wall except for Origins.
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
