Product Information:
I bought this wood kit awhile ago hoping to give a better more authentic look to my cybergun thompson...it did quite the opposite.
The wood itself is very nice, but the fit and color is what really makes it look bad. the stock fits nice and the foregrip isn't a bad fit but the pistol grip does not fit too well. it cracked a little from me trying to get it in the position it should be.
the color is an orangish red which is not WWII at all. I hate it. it didn't look that bad in the picture but when I got it I was very disappointed. The real tommy gun has nice dark brown walnut (or light brown) wood. The least they could have done was taken a look at some real thompsons and stained the wood a correct GI color. it would have made it much nicer.
The other thing that is missing is the reinforcing hardware (the little screw and washer near the front) in the stock, which I didn't like. without it, this really makes your thompson M1A1 just an M1 thompson, as the M1 thompson didn't have the reinforcing hardware.
the buttplate is a hassle too..it doesn't look like the real buttplate at all and in order to take it off you have to take the screws out, which is bad because you wouldn't be able to change batteries in the heat of battle if you needed to. the real tommy gun has a screwed on buttplate, but the real tommy gun doesn't run on batteries. ..oh well, I guess there wasn't an easier way for them to put it on.
all in all, I would not recommend spending $85 on this...go big and get the caw wood kit or go home...I took this kit off my thompson after having it on for about a week. I tried to tell myself it looked good but it just didn't and I put the plastic fake wood back on (which I made to look battle worn). at least it's the right color and the battery is much easier to get too.
if you're looking for a more WWII look and feel for your thompson, don't look at this.
and that's the bottom line, cause stone cold said so!


Pros:
seems like it would last a long time (maybe)



Cons:
color
missing reinforcing hardware in the stock
buttplate
fit

Product Information:
It fit alright. I did have to do some slight modifications to the foregrip to get it to fit. The foregrip was also not semitrical.

Pros:
Nice wood. Seems sturdy enough.

Cons:
My biggest issue with this was the butt plate. It is designed to be removed with a screw driver. This is a huge design flaw. The original plastic one that came with my gun had a nice pull and swing sideways plate. Not tools needed. I spent most of my time fabricating the stock to except the old swing plate from the plastic stock. This was a huge task that took hours and a dremal. I would not recomend this unless you are skilled with tools.

Second was the color of the wood. It has the super orange color like a cheap AK47. The thompson had walnut wood. I spent time sanding everything down and restaining.

Not everything is semetrical with the wood but all in all its a good start if you want to upgrade your thompson. If you want to make it look era correct and be user firendly...be prepared to spend a week working on the wood...not to mention some extra bucks on supplies.

Product Information:
This was a pretty good but i bought this for my CYMA thompson and it looked sick. The real wood made it loj so much better. I did have some problems with it though. The front shaft didnt quite fit it was no big deal, it was only a little lose. i threw some smaller screws on there and it fit perfect. The smaller screws were only a dollar and you can find them pretty much at any local hardware store. over all it is deffinetely worth the money.

Pros:
looks really cool on your gun
feels awesome there is nothing fake feeling wiyh these parts
i love it

Cons:
didnt really fit because of too ong screws but its not a problem just get smaller screws other than that these parts are perfect..
