Is that the Kings Arms or the Cyma? I thought the Kings Arms was all engraved. The Cyma's info is just painted on. Is it all wood and steel?

The King Arms and Cyma bodies are exactly the same, painted info etc. Wood is fake but so well made that people don't realize until they touch it. Receiver is Metal upper and plastic lower. The difference between the two, is the gearbox, cyma or king arms Battery seems to be different between the two. I also hear rumors of a King Arms with engraving, all metal and wood but I have yet to see one for sale from a retailer.

All you need is a nice wood kit to top it off and you will have a very nice weapon .

There are two different versions of the KA Thompson. The CYMA like one that everyone has and the higher quality all wood/metal version. Yet to see the premium here yet seeing how its $350 in HK.
Here is some pics of my CYMA thompson. Stripped and blued.

That's beautiful, Adamlxlx...

Here's mine...




All I've done so far is taken a Dremel to some of the "trades" on it, tried to wipe out "Made in China" and "Cal. 6mm"...

Adamlxl, correct me if I'm wrong, but the real M1a1 was parkerized. Still nice nonetheless.

Some retailers like Ehobby and Redwolf are selling the ultra version already.

It all really depends on what year it was made. Some late 1944 and 1945 thompsons came with no finish at all, bare metal.
