Submachine Guns

M1A1 Thompson

M1A1 Thompson submachine guns are used in several scenes by Roch Siffredi (Alain Delon), François Capella (Jean-Paul Belmondo), their henchmen and their enemies. All SMGs is fitted with a vertical foregrips and drum magazines, and also sometimes fitted with Cutts compensators - to make their match the more period-accurate M1921/M1928 (as the M1A1 is anachronistic).
