Shoots 6mm BB's SA only from a 30 rnd box (holds 400 bb's ) .
The catalog says it is a 1928 Military model, the box says Military M1 and the left side of the Rcvr says " Model of 1921". Finned barrel, Slotted cocking handle on top and a Horiz. fore grip.
Gun cost $99 and 10K bb's cost something like $12. Buyers club is less. Delivered in 3 days, not like my trials with Hunters Lodge. Works fine after I learned to load the mag.
Can sit at the computer and shoot at a box on the other side of the room.
Might be worth looking in to. I ordered off their web site

We have a large hornet's nest nearby, but I haven't gotten that brave yet. Those things feel like baseball bats when they nail you.

It is an accurate 1:1 scale model of the real thing, with mostly late-war features and markings, and is made of wood and metal. I hung a reproduction sling and magazine pouch on it from http://www.atthefront.com, and it looks great.
I'm gonna try the wasp's nest trick. Thanks, Ken!

The neighbors don't mind me using an airsoft pistol in the back yard but get testy when I use the real thing, something about the noise. Course I just took a rabbit in my garden to task with a .45Colt it happened to be stoked with a 300gr Kieth bullet 1,000 fps out of a 4 3/4 barrel. It's a wonder they don't turn me in some days.

The electric one is amazing. It's got an aluminum reciever, shoots great, but has plastic furniture which can't easily be changed, as the mechanics and batteries are stored in there so you can't just put a buttstock of wood on it without a derious boring of the wood (a front handguard would be easy, I'm sure). I haven't bought one just yet, but have drooled over them many times. The darned plastic grips are what's keeping me from buying one right now.
And as for wasps, I use my trusty Red Rider BB gun. I can usually nail a nest way up at the top eaves of my home with a single shot.

Now if only they made drums as part of the conversion kit, and the price were more college-student friendly...
(These things are the only way I'm likely to be able to own a full-auto Thompson here in PRWA, short of divine intervention. Guess that's just one more reason to go home to Texas...)
