Got the MP40 though.

Would be nice to hook it up to a scuba tank.
Coney Island had Thompson like guns with air hoses.
Shoot out the heart on the paper and win your gal a teddy bear.

My guitar soundboard spruce from the Austrian Tyrol was shipped to the States, in the '40s, in plastic from Thompsons.
Last time I had a Thompson in my hands was when Markham Park first opened and the low wall between the Police and civilian range allowed a ricochet to hit my neck.
ElleMae was laughing and the ROs were calling the lawyers.
Wall was made a bit taller but there was no plaque with my name.

Full auto and other fun back then.
We were promised a 600 yard range but it is what it is.

I bought my grandson a co2 powered M14 rifle. Box had the name winchester on it. Looks great, added a vietnam era sling and I have a m14 batonet that fit it perfect. Paid $200.

On a visit to Chicago in 1956, I got to go to the old Riverview amusement park. They had full auto Thompsons, and I think I spent half of my Riverview allowance on those. What a blast!

My LGS made a new receiver for the Thompson parts kit. I fired it. He wanted to build and sell them till the batf stopped him.

Good Lord ... You will shoot your eyes out with that thing !!!

But , seriously I wonder if in a "restricted" part of the country , where you can't own "firearms" if a BB gun would be allowed... I wonder if it could be used in self defense, inside your house ... full auto face full of BB's ???
Idle thoughts but I remember those Daisy BB's hurt and full auto would be like a swam of hornets hitting you !
One good thing is low noise and low recoil !

I too have not been to Markham park in decades.

I remember the fiasco over the rifle range

When I-75 was being improved across the State, the amount of fill required in South Florida was WAY Overestimated.

The County could have had the fill for FREE. So the SeaBees offered to build the long rifle range at no cost to the County. All they wanted was FREE range time in return for their labor.

Broward County was unwilling to give them the FREE Range Time and that is how we lost the deal

Sorry for my previous off topic drift.

I have a few of the Umarex manufactured pistols and am very pleased with the quality and functioning of the product.

I have also found the pricing to be fairly reasonable

The one little problem I had a few years back was resolved with one phone call to the US Distributor. They even threw in a cap, tee short and little target swinger.

Various forms of those have been great for raffle fund raisers for DU and Pheasants Forever around here. $10 ea or 3 for $25, 100 tickets, 10 minutes, 4-5 times profit.

I have a number of replica CO2 BB guns that very closely mimic the appearance, feel, and operation of the real thing.

The "Dan Wesson" is more like a S&W due to the cylinder latch, and the frame shape is not as authentic, but it does use individual "cartridges" that hold a BB in the plastic nose. It is great for practice, and for teaching beginners. The Schofield uses the same type of cartridges and I have a Single Action Army (not shown) that is similar.

The auto pistols operate just like the real thing with the slide or toggle reciprocating, and they lock back on the last shot. The Broomhandle is a full-auto version - unfortunately it doesn't lock on the last shot so it's easy to waste some CO2 after the mag is empty.

I also have an AirSoft version of the Thompson SMG that works great for chasing squirrels off of the bird feeders. It uses a battery instead of gas and the magazine holds hundreds of pellets, so I can hold the trigger down and send a spray of pellets after the squirrels as they run. Great fun!
