Here's a couple quick shots of my MGC Thompson.  This one is pre-1978 manufacture as it has the front-venting/open barrel.  Converted of course to the CP-HW cartridges.

One vid is 20-rd mag, other is 11rds, I think.  I about set my patience level for cleaning around 30 rounds, so................that's about all I'm good for during a firing session!  Very Happy

Sorry about getting a bit of my ugly mug in there - just focus on the gun!  One of these days maybe I can talk my wife into doing some modeling work for me - much easier on the eyes!

Enjoy!

Yes - the MGC Thompson was one of my very first modelguns and one of my favorites! Very Happy

When I get time, I hope to take another video of this open Tommy with the drum mag. Just imagine the smoke!!! Very Happy and then the cleaning........ Rolling Eyes

one thing about the MGC thompson that really impresses me is how well it works with a drum mag, mine has never failed to fire a full drum and you would think the drum would be temperamental.
