Thompson M1A1 Gel blaster - Simulated Light "Wood"

SKU: 742521032558

With that said the Thompson submachine gun was one of the most iconic gun of all time.

The Thompson submachine gun is an American sub machine gun first invented by John T. Thompson in 1918 during World War I and became infamous during the Prohibition era, being a signature weapon of various organized crime syndicates in the United States. It was a common sight in the media of the time, being used by both law enforcement officers and criminals.  The Thompson submachine gun was also known informally as the “Tommy Gun”, “Street Sweeper”, “Annihilator”, “Chicago Typewriter”, “Trench Broom”, “Chicago Submachine”, “Chicago Piano”, “Chicago Style”, “Chicago Organ Grinder”, “Drum Gun”, “the Chopper”, “the Tommy Boy” or simply “the Thompson”.

The Thompson was favoured by soldiers, criminals, police, the FBI, and civilians alike for its fully automatic fire, while still being relatively lightweight, portable and easy to use. It has since gained popularity among civilian collectors for its historical significance. It has considerable significance in popular culture, especially in works about the Prohibition era and World War II, and is one of the most well known and recognized firearms in history. The original fully automatic Thompsons are no longer produced, but numerous semi-automatic civilian versions are still being manufactured by Auto-Ordnance. These retain a similar appearance to the original models, but they have various modifications in order to comply with modern firearm laws.

    Charging Batteries

    Do not leave batteries unattended whilst charging and take off charge when they have completed charging.

    When charging the batteries, we recommend charging them between 1-4 hours.
    When they are charging the light/s will flash and once it is fully charged, the light/s will turn a solid red or green.

    Also once you start to hear the battery getting flat, please recharge it as running it flat can damage the cells.

     Soaking & Storage of Gels

    When soaking the gels, they need to be soaked fully submerged in water from the tap for a minimum of 5-6 hours.

    Once they have fully grown you can leave them in the water and keep them in or out of the refrigerator.

    When you are ready to use them just drain of any excess water with a strainer before you feed them into the mag but do not dry them as they need to be lubricated to work properly.

    You can store gel balls in a bucket of water with a lid for up to 3 months before they start to go super soft. We recommend if you do this to change the water every couple of weeks.

    Do not upgrade any part of your toy gel blaster as this will void the warranty. Upgrades refer to pulling any of the blaster apart or opening it up, changing springs or upgrading the battery from 7.4v to an 11.v battery.
