King Arms Thompson Gold & Silver AEG Airsoft Machine Gun Table Top Review

2 Comments

Type: Airsoft.
Manufacturer: King Arms.
Model: Thompson M1A1 Military & M1928 Chicago (Gold & Chrome).
Materials: Metal & Wood.
Weight: 6.6 pounds.
Barrel: 15 inches, metal.
Propulsion: AEG
Action: Semi/full auto, single action.
Ammunition Type: 6mm Plastic BB (recommended .20 gram plus).
Ammunition Capacity: 420 round magazine.
FPS: 380-410.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the King Arms Thompson Machine Guns is fairly short and light as it is essentially just an on-off switch for the internal electronic components. You can shoot this gun very quickly in semi auto mode, and of course even quicker when full auto is selected. As with all AEG systems their is a slight delay between when you pull the trigger and the shot is taken as the internal spring needs to compress first before releasing.

 

Accuracy: In many cases Airsoft guns can be just as accurate as 4.5mm BB guns, well at least at fairly close ranges, I was able to get most of my .25 gram BB 10 round target test shots within 1 inch from 30 feet away using a semi-rested position. There where a couple BB's that lengthened the group out to about 2 inches but still a very good result when you consider these are plastic BB's being used. In Terms of FPS, I did stick with the slightly heavier 2.5 gram Airsoft BB's and still got a decent 360 average 5 shot Chronograph test result making this AEG Airsoft rifle perfect for just about any Airsoft game type.

Build Quality: The King Arms 23 Karat Gold and Chrome Platted AEG Thompson Machine Guns are very well made using Aluminum Zinc Alloy bodies and real Wood Stocks, the fit and finish is very good and pretty much everything on these rifles are either metal or wood. You will have to polish these guns with a cloth from time to time since the mirror finish shows every smudge and finger print.

Realism: I'm not sure how many real 23 Karat Gold and Chrome Platted Thompson Machine Guns there are out there but there has to be at least a few ;) But going on how these guns look and feel, they are solid and very realistic. Some people have mentioned that the bolt should be on the top for some versions of the Thompson's but there are some Thompson's with the bolt on the side so I suppose we will let that one slide. The Wood stocks are a real plus adding to the overall weight and authenticity. Most parts works as they would on the real steel Thompson M1A1 Military or M1928 Chicago (Gold or Chrome) AEG Airsoft Machine Guns.

Available in the: The Canada Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Gorgeous Wood stock and Gold or Chrome platting.
  • Nice high capacity metal magazines, can be mixed and matched.
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage with two sight positions (Notch & Peep).
  • Semi and full auto selectable with really nice rate of fire.
  • FPS is bang on for indoor or outdoor Airsoft games.
  • Fully Thompson licensed.
  • Comes with Certificate of Authenticity.

Cons:

  • Does not come with a battery or charger.
  • Prone to finger prints and smudges.
  • Need to use a screw driver to get at the battery.

Comments:
I am a big fan of the King Arms Thompson line, even the all black version with the plastic stocks looks and functions great. Internally the lower cost black version is the same and having previously shot my black Thompson, I knew these blinged out 23 Karat Gold and Chrome Platted versions where also going to perform as good as they looked! I'm not so sure about buying a Gold or Chrome Thompson for everyday use, since they will get knocked around and scratched up but if you are looking for the best of the best with real wood stocks and all metal parts then make sure to consider one of the Thompson

King Arms Thompson Gold M1A1 Military AEG Airsoft Machine Gun Field Test Review

2 Comments

I am jumping the gun so to speak with this field test review and showing you my field test video review for the King Arms Thompson Gold M1A1 Military AEG Airsoft Machine Gun before I've even done the table top review... Guess I just wanted to shoot this one :)

I decided to perform my field test shooting review using just the Thompson M1A1 version since the 1928 style has the same internal mechanics, there really was no point in testing them both. Other than a few cosmetic changes like a stick magazine versus the drum magazine and the forward stock pistol grip on the 1928 version, these guns are pretty much the same. I also opted for the most flashy 23 karat Gold version, well... because "Gold is Best!"

So let's get to the results! As with most of the guns I field test, I shot 5 rounds through my chronograph, this time I decided to use .25 gram Airsoft BB's for both my chronograph and target portions of this shooting review since fishing the ammo out of the stick mag was a bit of a pain ;) I was able to get a respectable 360 fps average 5 shot Chrono test which makes this AEG Airsoft rifle bang on for just about any Airsoft battle situation. I would expect to get right around 380-400 fps if I was using the lighter .20 gram BB's.

Once I stepped back to the 30 foot semi rested target position, I shot 10 rounds first in semi auto which got me a pretty nice tight 1 inch group (if you throw out the couple of fliers). In Full Auto the shot placement also stayed nice and tight spreading out to about 2 inches or so. This Classic Thompson AEG Airsoft Machine Gun definitely hits what every you are shooting at and has a nice rate of fire that's not too wasteful of BB's but still offers plenty of cover when required.

At the end of this field test shooting review for the King Arms Thompson Gold M1A1 Military AEG Airsoft Machine Gun, I shoot some water filled cans while capturing the experience in slow motion using my new iPhone 5's 720p 120 frames per second 4 times slow-motion feature.

King Arms Colt M4A1 Metal AEG Airsoft Rifle Field Test Review

10 Comments

Type: Airsoft.

Manufacturer:King Arms.

Model:Colt M4A1 Metal AEG.

Materials: Metal & Nylon.

Weight: 6 pounds.

Barrel: 15 inches, metal.

Propulsion: AEG

Action: Semi/full auto, single action.

Ammunition Type: 6mm Plastic BB (recommended .20 gram plus).

Ammunition Capacity: 300+ round magazine.

FPS: 450.

If you haven't already checked out my King Arms Colt M4A1 Table Top Review, make sure to do so for all the details and specifications on the King Arms Colt M4A1 Airsoft AEG Carbine.

This Field Test Review focusses primarily on how the AEG  M4A1 performs in feet per second velocity using .25 gram plastic Airsoft BB's, its accuracy in both semi and full auto and of course my comments on it's shoot-ability and overall performance.

For this field test review of my King Arms M4A1 Airsoft rifle I switched from the .20 gram Airsoft BB's to heavier .25 gram plastic BB's. I did this to have a comparison between the two weights since I had already Chronographed and accuracy tested the .20 gram BB's. As expected the fps dropped a bit, down to around 380 fps but still stayed very consistent for me as would be expected with an AEG styled rifle.

<!-- google_ad_client = "ca-pub-9036472715040282"; /* Replica Airguns Content */ google_ad_slot = "1487049688"; google_ad_width = 468; google_ad_height = 15; //-->

Another reason I wanted to test out the heavier .25 gram Airsoft BB's is because generally speaking, heavier BB's will shoot a bit more accurately as they are not as effected by the higher fps this guns is capable of shooing. The .20 gram BB's actually did well so I had high expectation for the .25 gram BB's and I was not disappointed! For this test I shot the King Arms Colt M4A1 from 30 feet out in a semi rested position (rested on a sand bag in the front and standing in the back). I shot 10 rounds in semi auto and got a very respectable 1.5 inch group which rivals any airgun in my collection! I also shot in full auto (I can't really tell you how many rounds ;) and the King Arms Colt M4A1 punched a nice 2 inch hole in the target. I would almost say it even beat out my other full auto 4.5mm steel BB shooting guns in terms of how tight of a group it can shoot while in full auto mode.

I am sure the Airsoft Hop-up system has something to do with the accuracy as the back-rotating BB's should keep a truer trajectory. One thing I notice while shooting this AEG styled Airsoft rifle, is that there is a slight delay from the time you pull the trigger till the shot is released. The trigger is actually activating a motor which in turn pulls the internal spring back, which then releases it once it hits the end of it's cycle. It's not a long delay but it is noticeable. In full auto it really does not matter at all :)

All in all I am again impressed with what an Airsoft gun can do in terms of both looks and performance.

King Arms Colt M4A1 Metal AEG Airsoft Rifle Table Top Review

12 Comments

Type: Airsoft.

Manufacturer:King Arms.

Model: Colt M4A1 Metal AEG.

Materials: Metal & Nylon.

Weight: 6 pounds.

Barrel: 15 inches, metal.

Propulsion: AEG

Action: Semi/full auto, single action.

Ammunition Type: 6mm Plastic BB (recommended .20 gram plus).

Ammunition Capacity: 300+ round magazine.

FPS: 450.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the King Arms Colt M4A1 is fairly short and light as it is essentially just an on off switch for the internal electronic components. You can shoot this gun very quickly in semi auto mode, and of course even quicker when full auto is selected.

Accuracy: Again, I tested this Airsoft rifle just like I do my other BB rifles and put 10 rounds into a target from 30 feet out using a semi rested position (sand bag in the front - standing in the rear). I used a non-magnified red dot scope for this test rather than using the built in iron sights. Like my initial WE SCAR test, when I walked up to the paper I was shocked at this Airsoft rifle shooting .20 gram plastic BB's. I again got a 2 inch 10 round grouping! I am beginning to think that a well tuned Airsoft gun can make for a pretty good target plinker!

Build Quality: The King Arms Colt M4A1 Metal AEG Carbine is very well made with a full Metal upper and lower receiver, along with metal parts exactly where they would be on the real steel version of the Colt M4. The only plastic or nylon components are the stocks and the grips and perhaps some internal parts. There is a bit of wiggle in the rear stock and metal magazine but this may be a Colt M4 attribute, for the most part the fit and finish was excellent!

Realism: As with many Airsoft guns, there is great attention to realism and the King Arms Colt M4A1 is no exception. It is an AEG and not a gas blowback Airsoft gun so it does lack some realism in terms of the hard hitting bolt action but on the other hand you can fire what seems like an endless stream of BB's in full auto with this AEG Colt M4A1 Replica. I do like the fact that the charging handle and forward assist works similarly to a real M4 and also the Dust cover cleverly exposes the internal hop-up for easy adjustment. The Colt licensing and branding throughout this M4A1 look-a-like help to really make this Airsoft rifle look believably like a real Colt M4 carbine. 

Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Amazing attention to detail with lots of working parts.
  • Full colt licensing and markings.
  • All Metal upper and lower receiver, lots of metal parts throughout.
  • Semi auto & full auto selectable.
  • High capacity 300+ round magazine.
  • Removable carry handle with Weaver/Picatinny rail underneath.
  • Nice high 400+ FPS.
  • Extremely accurate for plastic BB's.
  • Fully adjustable sights with two position Peep sights.
  • 6 position adjustable stock.
  • Easy access to internal hop-up system.

Cons:

  • Magazine and stock seems bit lose.
  • Canada version does not come with battery or charger.
  • Came with the orange flash hider, you may want to replace or paint it if legal in your area?
  • May be too powerful for inside skirmishes without some detuning.

Comments:

I was not fully sure if I would warm up to an AEG style of Airsoft rifle as I really enjoy the realism of a gas blowback type of replica gun. But the overall realism of the King Arms Colt M4A1 metal AEG really won me over and the added working components like the charging handle and forward assist along with the fully adjustable sights and 6 position stock just made it for me with this Airsoft Carbine. There is something to be said about an AR15 styled gun, they just look the part and this very realistic and usable M4 Airsoft replica is not just great to hold and look at but also performs very well which would make it deadly on the field! Now if only I could find some time to use it on the field ;)

King Arms Colt M4A1 - Swiss Arm GSR 1911 - Western Arms S&W Shorty 40 Preview

No Comments

I already mentioned all three of these gun in my previous posts, two being Airsoft: the King Arms Colt M4A1 All Metal and my Western Arms Shorty .40. And one being a 4.5mm steel BB shooter, the Swiss Arms Sig Sauer GSR 1911. I wanted to make you a quick YouTube Preview video to show you around all three replica guns before I get around to actually doing my full reviews for each of them.

I will most likely start off with my King Arms Colt M4A1 All Metal Airsoft rifle, then review my Swiss Arms Sig Sauer GSR 1911 4.5mm BB pistol, then finish off with my deal Airsoft pistol, the Western Arms Shorty 40.

This preview video should give you a good idea about these guns, but make sure to stay tuned for my full review videos for each of them.

King Arms Colt M4A1 Metal AEG Airsoft Rifle

13 Comments

I have been very eagerly waiting for my King Arms Colt M4A1 to show up and it finally did. I have wanted an M16 - M4 for some time and to be honest I didn't really care if it was a 4.5mm steel BB shooter or 6mm plastic Airsoft gun. I just wanted it to look the part and hopefully perform well too.

Well I was definitely very happy with the King Arm Colt M4A1 All Metal Airsoft rifle. It looks amazing, has good weight, metal in all the places you would find metal on the real steel version, working bolt assist, working charging handle and both semi and full auto fire modes. My King Arms Colt M4A1 even has a removable carry handle.

And as for performance, it shot right on the money in both fps and accuracy, I don't want to give away too much since I will be doing a full review very soon but you will not be disappointed with this one!

Airsoft Guns Have Arrived - Well Sort of!

No Comments

OK we are one step closer to having stock on some Airsoft guns. I have 4 new full-auto rifles for you to choose from in our Canada and US Replica Airguns Stores. In the US Replica Airguns Store they are in stock and ready to sell but we have to wait just a bit for them here in the Canada Replica Airguns Store so I am giving the Canadian version a bit of a pre-sale price reduction to give you some incentive!

The Canadian versions are all high velocity and shoot in the 450 fps range to allow us to sell them to you here in Canada in the "non-clear" solid metal and polymer versions since they will be classified as "non-regulated firearms" just like a regular airgun.

And yes I will be reviewing these Airsoft rifles for you, hopefully all of them :)
