Total: $334.99

Type: Air Rifle / Machine Gun.
Distributer: Umarex
Model: Legends M1A1.
Materials: Mostly Metal build.
Weight: 7.75 pounds (3.5 kilograms)
Barrel: 12 inches - smooth bore steel.
Propulsion: 2x12 gram CO2.
Action: Internal BoltBlowback single action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 30 round full size drop out magazine.
Max FPS: 435.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun is single action only so you will need to charge the bolt for the first shot just like you would on the real steel Thompson M1A1, after that the blowback operation will charge the bolt which allows for semi and full auto shooting. Trigger pull is not very long or heavy.

Accuracy: I have not done my official Field Test Shooting Video for the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun but expect to to shoot in a similar manner to the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun. Stay posted for my future Field Test Shooting video coming later on.

Build Quality: The Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun is pretty much all metal other than the stock and pistol grip. Pretty much everything that is black is going to be metal on this CO2 airgun. It weighs in at a hefty 7.75 pounds which is lighter than the real steel version by about 2 pounds but keep in mind the simulated plastic wood grips are a much lighter than real wood would be. Overall the fit and finish is really good, mechanical parts work well and seem to be well machined..

Realism: The Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun is a 1 to 1 replica of the real steel World War II Thompson M1A1 Machine Gun and is very authentic looking with similar operation. Even the magazine holds 30 rounds just like the real steel Thompson M1A1. The blowback operation will give you a little bit of that shoulder tap but of course nothing like a 45 caliber M1A1. As expected in todays Replica Airguns the barrel is recessed to give it a larger opening and the CO2 screw is hidden well enough. I would like to see at least a real wood kit for the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun which would not lonely look even better but also increase the overall weight closer to the 10 pound real steel weight.

Pros:

  • Yet another Classic Legends Replica Airgun from Umarex, maybe one of the best to date.
  • Mostly all metal design with good overall weight.
  • Semi and Full auto select-ability.
  • Dual CO2 design for increased shots and less cool down effect.
  • High capacity 30 round full size drop out metal magazine.
  • Umarex went with less rounds to get away from the double stay configuration of the 50 round Legends MP40 which was not always dependable.
  • Great looking replica of the real steel M1A1 in looks, operation and feel.
  • Internal bolt blowback will give a bit of recoil feedback feel.
  • Simulated wood looks very realistic.
  • Recessed barrel for added realism.

Cons:

  • Real wood hardware would have been cine and added it of additional weight. Maybe Umarex will offer this down the road?
  • Price is getting up there a bit but still worth it if you are an M1A1 fan, imagine what a real one would cost?
  • Going to eat up CO2 quickly in full auto mode but you can always switch over to semi auto.

Comments:
Another great Legends product from Umarex, maybe even the best one so far. The only issues I had with the Umarex Legends MP40 was the double stack magazine feeding dependability with the 50 round double stack magazine not always feeding consistently. Umarex went back to a less aggressive closer to a single stack magazine on the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun which has a fewer rods but is expected to feed more consistently. I am looking forward to getting out and actually shooting the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun when I make my Field Test Shooting video. My advice right now with uncertainties about if and when we will get new inventory is buy now if you are in a position to as I am not sure how long they will last and when we will be able to get more stock.

M1A1 Thompson

I don’t review things ever, but I had to review this! Surprisingly accurate single fire, and it does damage on full auto! It takes 2 co2 tanks at a time, and you get about 3 or 4 good clips of 30 bbs before you need to switch em out. And I was a little disappointed with the plastic instead of wood. But it’s a ton of fun and worth every dime. So much fun to let people shoot it and see their reaction, you will not be disappointed!

Best SMG replica I have seen yet

I have several military-style airguns (MP40, Sig MCX, Steel Force, DPMS SBR, MP5 K) and I have to say, this Thompspn M1A1 is one of the best. Using the peep-hole site alone, this thing is not only weirdly accurate for a BB gun (as opposed to rifled-barrel pellet guns), you actually FEEL as if the BB's are going where you want them to. Not kidding. CONS - As you first hold it, and forever after, you notice and hear the JIINGLE of the strap clips on the stock and muzzle end of the foregrip. This is because the original wood is replaced by a beautifully done but hollow polymer replica so it tik-tok-knocks all the time when you move the gun. Either get a strap for it or somehow tape them quiet....or simply enjoy the tinckle-jinkle noise....your choice. Personally, I hate it, and a strap, which makes it look more authentic too, helps. - The FEE:L of this gun in your hands.....the Thommy gun is one of the hallmarks of American gun culture, but this large submachine gun feels cumbersone, not only for its heavy weightc which adds to the sense of quality and realism, but the shape....style...way you hold it feels...OFF..., old-timey, like we hadn't figured out what a fast-firing smallish weapon should feel like. Which is exactly what it is, cuz it was one of the first. - It fires too fast in full-auto Probably around 1400 rounds/minute, similar to the Crosman Steel Force in burst mode. There isi NO single shot semi-auto, which is authentic, but OMG, you go through a mag of 30 shots in less than 1 1/2 seconds unless you are VERY gentle on that trigger. PROS - Just about everything else -- It looks authentic, in every way, the magazine release mechanism, charging bolt, and ssafety/firing mode switches, everything. Wonderfully designed and shaped, all metal except original wood parts are hollow, but really nice lookin polymer. - CO2 - the first time I used it, I got 3 and a half good magazines, (100+ shots) out of it, then when I opened the CO2 cylinders up, I saw that one of the cylinders, the one closest to the screw, hadn't even been punctured!!! In subsequent trials I found I could get 150-180 good shots foom the dual 12 gram cylinders before they became noticeably weak. - Accurracy....this thing is WEIRDLY accurate, for a non-rifled BB gun. Using the peep-hole, close-range sight especially, this gun just hits where you think it should, which is what you want.

Very fun and reliable. Worth the coin.

I've had the Legends M1A1 for a couple of weeks now and I have no regrets getting this air gun. Accuracy is very good. Like, REALLY good. Anyone can pick this gun up for the 1st time and hit a bullseye, in my opinion. If that is how the real thing was You, I can see why it was a military issue during ww2. Just give it to someone and you're a marksman, basically. You can dump a full mag in the same spot on a target (20ft away, I can only shoot in a small garage). It hits pretty hard. Out of the box, Ioaded it and got through 4 mags (if I remember correctly) before the c02 was out. Most of that was full auto. Gun seems to keep it's power right up to the last couple shots. What I mean is, rather than having 1 or 2 weak mags, you will get a solid 3, and on the 4th the power drops off a bit half way through the mag with enough to still shoot accurately but less power. I loaded up new c02, emptied a mag, and then left it for 1 week. Took it out and shredded a can of spam like it was paper. The bb's didn't exit the back of the can if spam, but left some pretty large welts and a couple of them were close to breaking through. Got another 3 mags before the c02 finished which tells me the seals are really good so far. Construction is very solid. The only rattling noise comes from the clips for holding the strap. Add a strap = noise eliminated. The only con is the way you have to pull the mag follower back - which seems to be the only real complaint from anyone so far. You have to use your fingernail to hold it back and sometimes can be a bit messy getting bb's in if the follower slips. I'm going to make something to do the trick but the gun would be absolutely perfect if Umarex came out with a speedloader for this magazine. Current owners would buy it and new owners would appreciate it. All in all, I highly recommend if you're looking for a realistic, powerful, and reliable full-auto air gun.

Well worth it

I was not sure if I would care for the faux wood but its not bad at all. Its simulated wood like decking. It is accurate even with daisies I find more accurate than the MP40, however it just may be because of the full stock. The mags are easier to load than the MP but dont hold as much, and are very hard to find atm. The sights are great, like the real one. Heavy and a bit bulky like the real one. The only thing that I would like is for a real wood set for it, however, I am far more impressed by the faux wood than I had expected. It shoots fast like the real m1a1, hopefully they can make a drum for it.

Worth it

I had to tighten the hand guard, pistol grip and buttstock because they where alittle lose. I also had the fire selector switch fall off a few times. Some pros are that you can get 120 bbs through one mag before you need to change the two CO2 cartridges. It’s has a decent trigger pull and great sound.

SWEET!!!

Great SMG and a terrific Thompson Replica. What fun to shoot although I don't know why I need a SELECT FIRE switch. More fun shooting Full Auto! I'd like to see UMAREX come out with the 1928 Thompson with Horizontal fore end and Cutts Compensator, fitted with the 30 Round box magazine rather than a drum mag. The M1A1, as it stands, takes a front row seat in my Legends Collection, right next to my MP40. Can't wait for UMAREX to launch a Garand M1. Good work guys; I guess my next acquisition will have to be the M1 Carbine.

At SHOT Show this year Umarex introduced the Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun which pretty much everyone seemed to like. The MP40 was their last Legends Full Auto BB Machine gun and it was also a big hit. In this Field Test Shooting Video I get to have some fun testing out the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun and see if not only does it look awesome but does it shoot awesome?

As always I like to test each gun out in the Replace Airguns Indoor Sea Can Airguns Range first placing 5 rounds through my Chronograph to find out the real world velocity of each test gun, then I shoot 10 rounds at a distance of 30 feet onto a paper target to see how tight of a grouping I can get shooting from a seated and rested position. When it come to full auto BB guns like the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun, I will usually switch up to full auto and dump the rest of the magazine to see if I can still stay on target with the remaining rounds.

I’m a big fan of the Umarex Legends Series BB Guns and the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun may be my favorite out of all of them to date. The Thompson M1A1 is just such a stand out Machine Gun we all know from the Mob shows. Not only does the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun look the part but it performs I would have to say so far the best when it comes to Full Auto Machine guns at least from Umarex. I do have to say that the Crosman CO2 BB AR Series does not disappoint. That said if you are looking for a more classic BB Machine Gun that performs as good as it looks then my advice is grab yourself one of the Umarex Legends M1A1 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun and add it to your collection.
