The Thompson is an American submachine gun, invented by John T. Thompson in 1919, that was well used during WWII but became infamous during the Prohibition era. It was a common sight in the media of the time, being used by both law enforcement officers and criminals. 

The Thompson was also known informally as: the "TSMG", the "Tommy Gun", the "Trench Broom", the "Trench Sweeper", the "Chicago Piano", the "Chicago Typewriter" and the "Chopper". In the case of the latter few nicknames, these where generally used to refer to the 1928 Chicago variant. Well used on the Silver screen, the Chicago typewriter was a later variant and used with the distinctive drum magazine and ribbed barrel in most media. The M1A1 is the base model SMG used by American troops in the war. 

This King Arms model makes use of a version 6 style gearbox, a tried and trusted system for many years now which means it works well as is but also has the potential for upgrades. The hop-up is adjustable via the dial just short of the barrel from the outside, it is permanently exposed so the bolt does not need to be pulled back to access it. 

As the military model, it has the bolt pull in the correct place on the right; the handguard is the plane strait wooden type and the stock and pistol grip are also wood whilst the receiver and barrel are Aluminium. The fire selector and safety are two different toggle switches right next to each other and the magazine release is located on the left of the pistol grip making use of an early form extended release catch. 

The battery storage compartment is located in the solid stock, accessible through a rear hatch it is designed to take a large type NiCad battery. The hatch is really designed to be able to connect / disconnect the battery easily, the buttplate is removable to make battery installation easier. 

The long strait type magazine is a 420 round high capacity type making it appropriate as a short range sweeping weapon. The magazine is steel so despite its fairly low weight it will be hard wearing. The magazine has the same slotted style attachment as the real steal making the otherwise shallow attachment very secure. The King Arms strait box and drum magazines are interchangeable with both being compatible on this weapon. 

This AEG has great build quality and good performance making it a very decent SMG AEG in its own right besides also being a charming replica of a period piece for themed games whether for use as a military SMG or a law enforcement / criminal sequestered incidence.
