Air rifles are changing all the time, and maybe you’re looking for a classic and want to go back in time? Well, this new Umarex Legends air rifle may just be the solution.
The Thompson aka Tommy Gun was created in 1920 by designer John T Thompson. You either saw it with the drum magazine, which held 50 or 100 rounds, or a stick magazine that consisted of 20-30 rounds.
The Thompson was almost created for the first world war, as it was set to be the “trench sweeper”, chambered at the same caliber as the colt 1911 (.45). The prototype was created just as the war ended.
The Tommy gun then become famous in the US prohibition era for falling into gangster’s hands. The rifle then was acquired by the USA army in 1928 and used in World war 2 by both the British and USA army.
