You have a tommy gun! That's fucking cool. I can only assume you have a drum clip, for OG effect.
And that HK SL8-1 looks like something out of Starship Troopers or something. Badass!!:new_all_c

Thanks on the HK, it feels like it comes out of starship troopers. So much lighter than the Thompson.

The standard magazine holds 30 rds.
Seriously though, that 100 rd. mag, is like 5 lbs. added weight to an already suprisingly heavy gun. It's like 13 pounds. That front handle is on there for a reason. The thing is a beast, it's awesome.

The front handle is sweet, but I personally favor the (standard?) Wood grip. WWII style.
Like the one above the one like yours in this picture.:new_all_c

In 1938 the U.S. Army adopted the Thompson as a weapon and it was given the M1928A1 designation. A variant of the M1928 model, the M1928A1 used a horizontal foregrip instead of a vertical foregrip, and made use of box magazines instead of drum magazines. The 50-round drum magazine was prone to jamming and was not well suited to combat conditions.
Updates to the weapon were made over time in order to simplify its production, and in April of 1942 the M1 model of the Thompson replaced the older M1928A1. Among the changes made were a permanently attached buttstock, and design alterations that prevented the use of the drum magazine.Kungfoolss, Scourge of the theory-based stylists, Most Feared man at Bullshido.com, and the Preeminent Force in the martial arts political arena
