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.

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.

First impressions

Just received this yesterday. This is an amazing replica of the m1a1 Thompson. Missing the fins and bling of earlier models the m1a1 was a more leaned out version for wartime service .This bb replica captures that accurately. Super solid and well made. I was amazed at how heavy duty the mag is. Have not shot it yet but I'm guessing it wont disappoint. Was a little pricier than other guns in my collection but its Awesomeness sets it apart.I highly recommend it.

Amazing Gun

Everything about this gun is awesome. Super realistic, and feels great. Shoots super accurately and CO2 lasted a lot longer than I expected. Everyone should buy this gun!

M1A1 Thompson

I recently purchased this bb carbine, the fit and finish was/is good a few small chips in the finish nothing serious but the reason for the 4 and not 5 stars on quality is due to the front sight being slightly off centered to the left, I'll likely find a way to adjust it, may have happened during shipping?. The gun functions flawlessly, very accurate nice overall feel, bought a walnut wood kit for this, the kit was for a ggb kwc m1a1, I was told most likely this will fit. The plastic feel of the furniture detracts from the overall feel of the gun but not by too much, I would definitely recommend this m1a1.

Awesome!

This is the funnest BB gun I have. Very good accuracy. Awesome replica. Very realistic plastics. Quickloader would be great. Highly recommend buying extra magazines as it goes through the mag fast in auto as is too much fun to use single fire.

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.
