"This gun is a BEAST!
When I first took this gun out for actual airsoft games, I was extremely surprised at how easy it was to see the BBs fly out. It was a great advantage since I could whether or not I was hitting my targets or not! The drum mag is not only great for looks for ammo capacity as well, at 450 BBs.
PROS:
*Stylish period gun
*Visible line of fire (able to see the BBs fly out)
*Great and stylish hi-cap drum mag which is easy to use
*Compatible with Thompson stick mags
*Built in fore-grip
*Easy hop-up adjustment
*Extremely light
*Doesn't feel awkward when firing on semi


CONS:
*Kind of awkward to hold, you have to lean in to shoulder and fire (You can always hold the drum/ stick mag as a fore-grip though)
*Battery rattles around the stock a bit but you can put in bit of tissues to fill in the empty spaces
*Not a lot of places to put away the drug mag on your load out unless you have a big pouch
*A bit expensive as it is almost $200
*Can't be used it in indoor airsoft fields
*Faux wood (eh... not too big of deal)
*Compartment on the stock to change battery sometimes gets jammed if the wires are pushed up against it inside

Gun is totally worth buying, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone buying their first airsoft gun.

"This gun is just amazing! It is a heavy beast with all full metal construction, besides the wood stock, pistol grip and forward grip. The internals are great. You should get a better battery then just the one it comes with. The stock doesn't have a lot of space for the battery so be careful with the size I had to kind of just bunch everything in the stock to fit it. And oh my god the drum mag just makes this gun even more of a beast, it is sturdy and feeds great and holds a crap ton of bb's. I didn't happen to get this gun from Evike because it was on pre-order, I got it at my local sporting goods store. The gun is a hard hitting gun and has great distance. I do recommend using heavy bb's because of the high fps. 0.20g bb's worked great. It is a heavy gun too, with the weight so be prepared for that. I do approve of this gun and if you think about getting it then you should! GET THIS GUN, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

"I've had this gun for a few days now and have already used it in a war with some friends. By far it is my favorite and it dominated the field (My friends were using Aks FAMAS, and M-4s). At first I was doubtful about how well it would compete, but I was soon shown there was no need to worry.
Pros.
Great ROF
Good FPS
Extremely Durable
Heavy (Some may find this to be a con, but I personally like the weight as it adds to the guns realism. Although after a 6 hour war, your arms do get kind sore.)

Cons.
Heavy (Arms get sore after long airsoft war)

Overall, I would recommend this gun to both pros, and beginners.

"Great gun for a WWII battle. All markings on gun are historically correct as well as the look of the gun. If your looking for a gun that is combat ready out of the box this gun is perfect. The gun is large and heavy though this is not a con. The real Thompson was the same size and weighed approximately the same. If you are a person of small stature and have trouble carrying around a heavy gun then this is not for you. I believe in full metal guns that are heavy weight to simulate actual combat.

Pros:
-Top receiver is metal as well as barrel
-Heavy weight for a more realistic feel
-Accuracy is good enough
-FPS is sufficient
-Drum mag is excellent for look as well as a capacity of 450 rounds
-Looks good and has great character
-Bolt can be pulled back
-Gear box has moderate internals and version 6 gearbox is easy to upgrade compared to an m4/m16 version 2 gearbox
-Has one sling mount for a "under the arm sling"

Cons:
-Feeding system stall fires about every 20-30 shots (easy fix by deburring out the edge)
-Lower receiver is ABS (this does lighten gun but I would prefer to add the extra 1 1/2lbs)[Can be purchased else ware]

"Ive had this gun for about two years now and it still works like the day i took it out of the box. excellent support weapon, and field presence.
by Andrew P. on 03/04/2012
"Overall Pros:
-gearbox
-rate of fire
-muzzle velocity (not as high as advertised, but still awesome)
-drum mag and vertical fore-grip make great partners
-fun to shoot
-can be formatted for cqb

Overall Cons:
-connection of pistol grip (very minor con)
-length (can be shortened for cqb if desired)
-may be heavy for some (vertical fore-grip really helps with the weight)

"This gun is GREAT! I got mine from the boneyard for 70 dollars and all that was wrong with it was that a red bb had grease on it, and this bb was in the barrel so I fixed it. Lol. Saved myself 140 bucks. Thanks Evike. You guys are great.
by liam t. on 08/19/2011
"This gun really is as awesome as it looks. It fires straight, fast, and with the 500 shots you know it has enough ammo for a game. It is a heavy gun but I dont mind it too much and I'm only 5' 2". I now know why the gangsters fired from the hip because its huge. I can aim pretty well from the hip though because it fires straight and with a good rate of fire and a full drum mag you know youre going to hit your target. Ive got a wingun revolver and this and they both theyre a deadly combo. If you like cool, historic, and authentic guns, then I would highly recommend this and the wingun revolver.

"this gun is AWSOME ! i have the cybergun version but there all the same basicly . the gun is the most realistic looking gun i have ever seen the bbs go stright very nice if you have the money BUY IT!!!!
by Wes E. on 07/13/2011
"This is a very nice gun. i havent used it in a war yet, but there are great specs....

Pros:
1. You never have to take out the magazine because it reloads from the side.
2. It has a !!!huge!!! battery compartment for a 9.6v battery.
3. A trustworthy safety.
4. You feel like a gangster using it.
5. Insanely good fps, and is accurate.

Cons:

1. You need long arms.
2. No attachment rails... ( but who cares )
3. Kinda heavy with a drum magazine.

"I bought this gun about 3 weeks ago and I love it. I went airsofting with some of my friends at a CQB course near my house and it was fantastic. I also bought the stick mag on Evike for $26 and it worked like a charm. I borrowed my friend's lypoly battery and it increased the rate of fire for 10 rps to about 15 rps.

Pros:
Good rate of fire
Really good FPS (about 420ish when i used it)
Great Range
Pinpoint Accuracy if you adjust the hop-up correctly (I used .20 bbs)
It is a scale model. I don't really care about that but it is what it is.
The drum mag it comes with it holds a lot of ammo, so you never have to reload in the middle of a game.
The length of the gun is perfect for me and I am a 5 foot 11 inches and 150 lbs.

Cons:
There is only a clip to put a strap on in the back, so its hard to put straps on it.
The battery it comes with isn't very good, but you can buy a lypoly and fix that issue.
If you completely fill the mag, it can get a little heavy (about 10 lbs or so)

Other than that, this Tommy gun is great and I would recommend it for all skill levels of players: from beginners to experts. This gun can be used in either a field match or a CQB course and works perfectly. Haven't had a single issue with it yet and I am looking forward to using it again. This gun is awesome.
by Jack Z. on 03/17/2011
"Fantastic gun. Careful with the drum mag. Mine broke the day I got it and it was only a stripped gear. You might want to buy the set of five box mags if you want to be quiet because the drum is loud. If you do buy the box mags buy a speed loader because they are manual load, as by ONE BY ONE. Otherwise a great gun and is a great buy!!!!!!
by Patricia B. on 03/02/2011
"This was the first airsoft gun I bought, and I gotta say it's hard to beat. The fire rate is amazing, the accuracy is beautiful, and it just looks gorgeous. Everything about it makes me never want to put it down. The only "bad" thing about it is its battery which only lasts 5 hours, but all aeg's come with those sorta stock batteries.
So, all-in-all:
Pros:
Full metal
Amazing plastic stock and grips (Its amazing how much itlooks and feels like real wood)
ITS A TOMMY GUN
Weight makes it feel real
Great FPS
realistic fire rate(for a tommy _=])
amazing accuracy
EVERYTHING

cons:
weight(if youre a whiny 3-year-old)
length(allotta people say its a long gun, but I dont feel it, and Im only 5'7-ish)
stock battery (which is expected)
by Samson J. on 02/10/2011
"ive had this gun for a year or so and its really nice. i mean reallllyyy nice. i got a 9.6 volt battery for mine and that bumped up the rof to about 15 bps.
Pros:
Very accurate. i got a 6.04 mm barrel for it but when i first got it it had about 150 ft of ACCURATE range. range is almost always on my side in a battle with this gun.

it looks awesome

the front handle is nice because you can hip shoot it and you feel like a beast =D

the mag is really nice and its very easy to wind. you can also reload it without taking out the mag which is nice during a battle.

i've found that you can prop the gun up on a piece of plywood so the top of the plywood is behind the foregrip and mag and it serves as a really nice mounted support gun and you can shoot it while staying in cover.

cons:
its heavy and awkward to carry if you are using a large forest to airsoft. i suggest a shoulder strap.

the mag can sometimes get in the way if you are trying to crawl or something but its not a big deal.

"exact tokyo-marui clone but about 100$ less with dual pistol grips and a drum. this was my brothers gun but i traded him my upgraded echo-1 ak-74 u for it. totaly worth it! only thing i can think of that is a con to most people ( or me anyway ) is its a version 6 mech-box. if your new to airsoft that means aftermarket parts are much fewer than a version 2 or 3. but honestly you really dont need to overhaul this thing. from what i can tell this is just as accurate as my old ak-74. only complaint i have is it dosent feed reliably in semi auto at all. this should be an easy fix though. i suspect it might be the mech-box. but its a 1928 style thompson! why would you want to use semi?!?
