Things I liked:

This Legends M1A1 is definitely a smile machine. It is amazingly accurate for a smooth bore BB gun. At 45-60 feet, hitting plastic water bottles is no problem. It's harder to hit with on full-auto, but who cares? I think it's more fun than is legally allowed in a couple of states! I thought it would be a gas hog but sprayed some silicone lube into the works through the mag well and it smoothed up, and possibly speeded up the lock time. Opening and closing the valve faster may help it to use less gas. The gun gets a good 150 full power shots and starts to slow down by around 180. Tried reloading one more time just to see how much more it would shoot ( BBs are cheap ) but there wasn't enough gas left to empty the mag. Did I mention how much fun this thing is? The only problem I've had so far is that EVERYBODY wants to shoot it! Get one for yourself, you won't regret it, and no, I don't work for Pyramyd Air. Just be sure and stock up on CO2 and BBs. You're going to want to shoot it a lot.

Things I would have changed:

The only change I've made was to add a period correct Kerr type sling. Now it's perfect.

What others should know:

Keep it lubed. Everything works better and your new toy will last longer. When I change CO2 cylinders, I give it a spritz of oil in the barrel and keep the magazine well lubed inside and out. Don't over-do the oil, just keep everything slippery. Crosman CO2s and Daisy BBs work just fine in my gun..

Things I liked:

I really liked the "authentic look and weight".

Things I would have changed:

Th e magazine was a pain to load until I made a little "tool" .

What others should know:

What everyone should know is that this gun is really just a piece of overpriced JUNK by Umarex. Umarex customer reps are very rude and unhelpful. It is my theory that this gun produces so much "torque" on full auto that it will literally bend the inner barrel, (which is just a cheap aluminum tube). The aluminum inner barrel is only supported by the breech seal and a small plastic carrier grommet at the end of the barrel, the rest is just "hanging in the air inside the outer barrel". I am in the process of repairing my Thompson. First, I had to straighten my inner barrel. Then I put rubber support grommets all along the barrel inside the outer barrel, then I filled all of the "open space" with FlexSeal. I haven't finished it yet, but I know that when I fire it on semi or full auto the inner barrel is not going to move or bend. I have been trying for quite a long time to get an inner barrel made out of stainless steel. That would solve a lot of problems. Very inaccurate ! Barrel moveme

    Things I would have changed:

    The last round/bolt hold-open.

    What others should know:

    What an amazing bb blaster. The fire rate on the Thompson is ridiculously fast/awesome! I'm able to hit dead center on beer cans at close to medium range and it hits surprisingly close to p.o.a. without adjustable sights. I have put thousands upon thousands of bbs through mine, and the only malfunction has been the bolt stop lever's resting point on the slide. The slide is soft pot metal and I wish there was a reinforced steel piece where the lever rested upon firing the last round. For as much fun as this crazy plinker has brought me, I'm not going to sweat it. I removed the lever and I just keep count of my shots/bursts as to not wase co2 on dry firing. Absolutely love it 3 years later.

    Things I liked:

    LOTS OF FUN!! The full auto switch is the FUN switch! Very realistic looks and action. Even the plastic stock is almost as nice as real wood. You can't tell the stock is plastic until you tap on it. I think the stock is a better rendition than the stock on the Ledgends Cowboy Rifle. The M1A1 is much more accurate than I was expecting. The trigger is a little stiff but if you shoot full auto, I don't think it matters. I found a replica sling and magazine pouch on ebay and these items compliment the rifle and make it even more like WW2 weapon.

    Things I would have changed:

    I thought I wanted a wood stock but I am perfectly happy with the stock it came with, so nothing.

    What others should know:

    If you use Crosman CO2 cartridges, you might need a spacer between them so both are pireced. I use a penny. Sometimes I put one full CO2 cartridge in and one empty one for shorter shooting sessions. Stock up on CO2 and BBs you go through them fast.

    they call this bb gun the type writer for a reason!! this fun is very accurate i’d recommend usuing the Hornady.177 black steel bbs they work %100 great with the tommy gun i can write all day long on how awesome this bb gun is i highly recommend getting this gun!!! shoots very accurate in full auto mode you can see the bbs following each other straight as can be never seen one bb go off out the line of others!! if i could give this bb gun 10 star i would

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing at all i wish they would make the drum mag for this bb gun maybe they will in the future if so i’ll be buying it in a heart beat!!!!

    What others should know:

    I don't where to begin, from the smooth action, to the amazing accuracy (especially for a smooth bore), this gun delivers tons of fun. Highly recommend to everyone interested in historical weapons or CO2 guns in general.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only thing I'd want to see different is real wood furniture vs the plastic it currently has.

    What others should know:

    I've run a few hundred rounds through and I get about 4 1/2 magazines out of the 2 CO2 cartridges.

    Authentic WW2 looks, blow-back action, full-auto fun switch. Sounds great too!

    Things I would have changed:

    You have to hold the magazine follower down while loading BBs. I would prefer to have the ability to lock the follower in place while loading, but that isn't a big deal to me.

    What others should know:

    You get about 2-3 full mags out of the 2 CO2 carts in the mag. Also, standard Thompson WW2 slings will work with it.

    Things I liked:

    I have only popped two full magazines , but boy this one is a hoot to shoot! This piece is fairly well balanced, from 3 feet away looks just like the ones we had shipboard. I havent stretched it out for distance yet (raining today) but at 35 feet it will hit what I aim it at perfectly on semi and pretty darn close on auto.

    Things I would have changed:

    Possibly include at sling, I just happened to have a Kerr sling on hand, others may not. Make a full wood stock an option for an extra price such as the M1 carbine. Other than that, Nothing.

    Fairly easy to load, fun to shoot, Buy one!

    Things I liked:

    The looks are the best part of this Thompson. It is somewhat fun to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    1) The rate of auto fire is excessive and not realistic. You can empty the 30 round mag in about 1.5 seconds. The quickest trigger pull will release 5~6 round bursts minimum, giving you only about 4 bursts per mag. It's more like a mini-gun rate of fire cuz it makes that classic "Bert" sound. 2)Make the plastic stock solid -not hollow. As it is, it makes a really loud cheap hollow sound when the sling swivel taps the stock every single time you handle the gun -it screams "TOY!". 3) The mag is extremely difficult to load. You must hold the follower down with your fingernail while you fumble loading the BBs. If you don't have a protruding fingernail, it is nearly impossible to load the mag. Even with a good fingernail it is a difficult and frustrating task trying to load BBs into an opening that likes to jam up if you try to load too fast.

    What others should know:

    The gun is cheaply made and I do not expect it last much longer. The biggest problem is that the bolt hold-open catch mechanism is steel and the bolt is aluminum. The problem is the edge of the aluminum bolt gets deformed slightly every time it slams against the steel catch. After 4 mags the gun jammed and I had to dissemble it to file off the bur that formed on the edge of the bolt every time a mag is emptied and it is held open. After about 3 or 4 mags the bolt jams closed again. I have had to do this 3 times already in 2 weeks and it's getting old. At this rate it won't be long before the aluminum is so far gone that the bolt hold-open will not work anymore. Accuracy is very poor, it makes a 6+" group at 15 yards, and the POI is way off -low and to the left by 6" at 15 yards. Pathetic. To make matters worse the sights are not adjustable which takes a lot of fun out of shooting. If I had it to do over I would have bought the Airsoft version which is more realistic on every level.

    this is a fun little bb gun for plinking and destroying aluminum cans! i bought a lot of CO2 cartridges because it will use them up quickly on full auto. it uses 2 CO2 cartridges at once and will shoot about 60-75 BBs on full auto before it is gassed out awesome fun with this thing! it would totally run off unwanted critters without causing any harm but i would hate to be sprayed in the face with one!
