Introduction: Knex Thompson

This is my knex Thompson shooting replica

(credits to the Dunkis for trigger)

stats:
range: 25-35 feet
durability:the stock is very flimsy but the body is really sturdy
power:barely dents cardboard
ROF:repeater (cock,shoot,cock,shoot)
ammo:gray connectors

pros:
very realistic
removable mag with mag release
comfortable handle
IMO most realistic Thompson on the site

cons:
flimsy stock
mag is slightly angled to either side
uses cut parts
uses a lot of pieces




Step 1: The Stock

Read the notes.

Step 2: Body and Handle




Step 3: Fore-grip


Step 4: Assembly

I do not have any pictures of the firing pin but it is just a black rod with a blue spacer, an orange connector and tape.You have to tie a string to through the loop or connect a yellow rod to the back of the orange connector and tape it.

This gun is really old and there are alot of things I could have made better, like the stock connection and ram, but I guess its pretty good looking. I might make a newer version soon though.

author
rofl495 (author)knex inventor2010-09-21

But now that I look at it there are many things I could improve.

Is the orange flexi rod the same as the red flexi rod?

author
rofl495 (author)danbaha2010-08-15

I'm not sure but it is the same size as a yellow rod.

Don't thompsons have drum mags?

author
rofl495 (author)chopstx2010-01-26

There are two different versions of thompsons and this one doesnt have a drum mag the other kind also has different sites and a forward grip.

author
Reiben (author)rofl4952010-08-05

ones a WWI version with the charging handle on top and WWII is with on the side, the forward grip & drum mag are attachments, they can have a normal wooden block or handle.

author
rofl495 (author)Reiben2010-08-05

THe thompson never existed during WWI, the thompson was in developement during WWI and first came into production in 1921. You also cant attatch a forward grip to a WWII era Thompson.

author
Reiben (author)rofl4952010-08-12

well w/e but its an attachment for the gun

author
rofl495 (author)Reiben2010-08-12

No. I was trying to explain to you that they are manufactured with or without a vertical grip, and you cannot attatch one to it later on, therefore it is not an attatchment.

author
Reiben (author)rofl4952010-08-13

really? ive seen a video of someone replacing the grips on one, unless its only for airsoft, but it does have one or two tho

author
rofl495 (author)rofl4952010-01-26

i meant "sights"

author
chopstx (author)rofl4952010-01-27

Oh, okay. Just wondering.

Some do and some don't, the ones with magazines are referred to as "tommy guns" because of their inventor John T. Thompson, these were mostly used by mobs. While the ones with Box magazines were used by the GI's of the US army, they used a box magazine fed Thompson as they complained that the drum magazine rattled too much.
