The THOMPSON DRUM MACHINE GUN is an alternate version of the stick Thompson Machine Gun, invented by John T. Thompson in 1919, that became infamous during the Prohibition era. It was a common sight in the media of the time, being used by both law enforcement officers and criminals. The Thompson was also known informally as: the "Tommy Gun". The drum magazine provided significant firepower, but in military service it was found to be overly heavy and bulky, especially when working on patrol or on the run in battle. This weapon can be famously seen in movies such as The Untouchables, Mobsters, Watchmen and countless others.

Resin is less flexible than rubber, but more durable. It is poured into a mold that is scaled and detailed exactly like the real life counterpart. A vacuum chamber is used to evenly fill the mold with resin. Solid cast resin replicas are accurate, highly detailed, steel reinforced, and impact resistant. They accurately emulate the feel, weight, and balance of the actual weapon. Maxsell has been offering firearm replicas for the military, law enforcement organizations, and film producers since 1987.
