Cyma Thompson 1928 Chicago Typewriter
This Airsoft AEG Gun is a battery-operated replica of the Thompson Submachine Gun, in its infamous civilian layout; the Chicago Typewriter. This variant of the firearm has a Drum Magazine, Integrated Foregrip and cooling fins on the barrel, to help deal with the tremendous amount of rounds the real thing can tear through in a matter of minutes.
Cyma Thompson 1928 Chicago Typewriter: Great Standard
The Cyma Thompson 1928 Chicago Typewriter is made to a great standard using alloy for the external metal parts of the gun, such as the entire outer barrel assembly and receiver. The faux wood furniture on the foregrip, pistol grip and stock is done to a great standard using polymer, and is both convincing and tough. The receiver controls are simple enough, with separate levers for Semi / Automatic fire modes and Safe / Fire, all easily controlled and within easy reach of your thumb.
The magazine release is also within easy reach, needing to be lifted upwards to release the Airsoft Magazine. The 550rnd Drum Magazine is a High Cap design, needing to be filled with Airsoft BBs by pouring them into the fill window at the top of the mag, and winding the large lever on the front of the mag to feed BBs. Just place the magazine into the grooves by the mag well and gently slap it into place to seat it.
