Having enough magazines to get you through each game is absolutely essential in airsoft. Nothing is worse than when you run out of ammo…it can really ruin the day. There are a couple of different types of magazine to choose from – you have the high capacity manually winding magazines, which hold a substantial amount of BB’s, but require you to wind-on the mag as you shoot. There’s electric auto-winding magazines which hold a lot of BB’s, and wind on using a dedicated battery and motor. Lastly you have the mid/low cap style of magazines – these are under spring tension, and don’t require winding…the trade off is that they hold less BB’s.
Without a shadow of a doubt the most iconic magazine for the Thompson is the drum magazine. It is instantly recognisable and synonymous with Hollywood Gangsters, and if someone says “Tommy Gun” you’ll be picturing a Thompson with a drum mag! In airsoft terms it is an extremely practical piece of kit – manufactured by CYMA under exclusive licensing for Cybergun, these replica magazines hold a whopping 450rds and are wound on via a large dial on the front of the mag, making it far easier to ensure you’ve always got enough BB’s.
Another fantastic benefit of this piece is that you can reload the magazine whilst it is still in the gun; slide open the hatch at the side of the magazine & pour in your BB’s – it really is that simple.
Compatible with CYMA, King Arms, Snow Wolf and TM thompsons.
