The WE-Tech M1A1 Thompson gas blowback airsoft rifle from Cybergun is the first of its kind to be introduced into the airsoft world. Constructed from a full metal and faux wood build, this replica not only looks and feels authentic; but can also take the abuse of war. This rifle is powered by Green Gas /Propane and features realistic blowback action with a heavy kick with every trigger pull for maximum realism; making this a fun choice for airsoft enthusiasts and collectors. The Thompson was invented in 1918, becoming infamous during the Prohibition era and used by law enforcement and criminals alike. This rifle later became one of the most recognizable and favored rifles for soldiers during World War II. The original real-steel version of the Thompson was adored for its accuracy and high rate of fire, and has been accurately recreated on an airsoft platform thanks to Cybergun. It was during the early and mid 1900s that this rifle was given a number of nicknames including “Tommy Gun, “Chicago Typewriter”, “The Chopper”, “Trench Boom” and then finally became the Thompson, named after its creator John T. Thompson.
High grade polymer faux wood was used for the handgrip, pistol grip, and stock making this one of the most authentic replicas available.The combination of the polymer sections with the full metal receiver and magazine creates a heavy weight airsoft rifle ready for all battle conditions. Front and rear sling mounts make transportation a breeze and allows this rifle to be carried out of the way for use of a sidearm. The 330 FPS makes this the perfect choice for CQB arenas, while still having enough power and accuracy for long range engagements. Utilize the adjustable hop-up to account for various wind conditions and target range to get that perfect shot every time. Fixed front and rear sight allows players to accurately zero in their targets without the need of an additional optic accessory.
