    WWII was from 1941 to 1945 for america, they had the round drum, but it was not standard Military spec, the clip was, as more could be carried, in tighter spaces, such as pouches

    Actually they’re right, there were two variants, 1. Was made in 1920 and had the original drum mag and forward grip, then in Wwii(1939-1945) the US made a specialist version, with a straight mag and no grip. This version was commonly used by paratroopers and other US specialist troops, such as the 101st, 82nd and Marine raiders.

    i am sick of this fighting. i was 8 when i posted this. i now know the
    m1a1 tomposn was a american SMG (sub machine gun) used during WWII
    (1939-1945) it had a flat clip and was used in the europen theatre and the pacific theater. i also know thompson are somtimes called tommys but are not . tommys are british. the are nearly the same design but with a round drum and a front grip. we have established that now.
