Price Value Quality
The Thompson is a good, hard shooter and the body kit despite not being 100% movie accurate is close enough.
At £100+ for a solid resin prop you paint yourself, £900 for a screen accurate prop (non-working) and £380 for the G & P kit where you need to supply a donor gun and build it yourself this has to be a bargain.

1. I haven't been able to field test this yet.
2.Haven't chorno'd it either.
3. This apply's to my rifle others may be different.
1. It's the M41A pulse rifle truly awesome
2. Build quality is very good on it.
3. Fire's like a peach.
1. No manual
2. Was a little loose
3. Annoying to load and wind.
4. Shotgun isn't real
5. No sights
So to begin with I have (as I assume ever single Aliens/airsoft nerd) been waiting for this rifle ever since Ares has rumoured to be making one so I soon as I found this and had enough money in the bank account I had to have it. And when it arrived (A day later then I thought it would cause I live at the north of Scotland) I nerdgasmed it arrives in a plain brown box with just a little sticker on it saying 18+ RIF blah blah blah. So open it up and and you get the M41A itself and a hi-cap, a battery (that looks slightly better then the usual Chinese crap you get) , a charger (which is the usual Chinese crap you get throw it away and get a smart charger) and a small pack of bb's (about 1 and a half hi-cap's worth so not bad).
But no manual which is a bit of a pain cause I didn't know how the butt stock was adjusted(it's the little green button just above it) Plus I found the outer barrel moved from side to side (but this was solved by tightening the 4 Allen nuts just back of the barrel).
But these aside I was very pleased with the plastic on it a lot better then the normal Chinese plastic you get and seems pretty strong and sturdy so no complaints there, the shot gun on the other hand is another story it feels and looks a bit plasticy but does the job and is satisfy to rack. Loading the rifle it is a bit difficult to do because you have to but the magazine in the right way (if anyone has a thompson they know what I'm on about). You have to get the magazine slotted into the runners on each side which takes a bit of practise and not something to be done in a hurry but I am sure that with enough practise this could be done faster and easier. You have to the bottom off so you wind the hi-cap which spoils the look of the M41A but I am planning on cutting a hole in the bottom so I can wind it . Also getting some King Arms 110 rounds thompson mags so you can load 95 rounds in it and watch that counter go down.
Now we come on to the sights of the rifle or more rather the lack of there is just a groove in the top for you to look down and aim which will annoy some people but I am willing to over look this and learn how to aim with it.
There is no marking's on this gun apart from "MADE IN CHINA" and what I can only assume is a unique serial number on it which I think is a nice feature and Is a lot better then have company marking all over a gun.
So to summarise I think this is a great gun and I am very happy with it even with it's fault's I don't think it would be wise to buy this if your just starting airsoft because of the lack of manual , sights and being difficult to load.
P.S. I will write up on range etc once I field test this.
