If you try and use the skematics or diaagrams Numirich has you will be terminally confused.

Check out gunpartscorp.com. They have a sidebar with a "schematic" link. It'll take you to their e-gun section where you'll be able to select from a multitude of guns....the Thompsons are there. From that menu you can go to several types of Auto-ordnance guns....M1 and M1A1 are near the bottom.
These are the exploded views from the manuals....a bit small and somewhat hard to see, but if you blow them up they should do nicely! And the parts list is right below the diagram!

I have an eight page print out copyed out of TM 9-215 concerning the M1 and the last figure shows the internals of the trigger group. it shows field strippping and all the parts. Just click and save the pics and when you view them blow them up to 150% or so if they seem a little small to show enough detail.
The M1/M1A1 will NOT take drums, even if you use a 28 trigger housing. You used to be able to buy modified drums that were remanufactured to fit the M1 series but a stock M1 is not cut high enough to allow the drum to seat nor does it have the slots for the drum in the recever. Milling the slots and metal away is not condoned as the M1/M1A1 recever is thinner than the 21/28, see frequently asked questions...
