Just as we were talking about some of us would love to see an M1A1 released... BOOM!
I stumble upon this thing!

https://www.umarexusa.com/legends-m1a1-full-auto-replica-bb-gun-177-umarex-airguns

I'm going to be all over this thing when it comes out! I don't know what is coming out at the SHOT show in a few weeks but I think I already found my star of this year show!

I mean, look at it! It's gorgeous, has the proportions and it's FULL AUTO. I'm getting giddy :lol:

That's definitely iconic and for sure a lot of fun with the full auto. looks like the magazine can also be modified to fit bulk fill co2.

Nice. Looks to be actual wood and metal- not bad for the price point (though the guy in the video quoted $199...) That said, it sounded a little uneven as he released the full 30 shot load. Maybe the CO2 cans don't recover quickly enough after each individual shot for consistent pressure?
I'm looking forward to some reviews and a head-to-head test with the Legends MP-40.
Wait- how do you Chrony a full auto? :shock:

I concur with all the prior posts. I can't wait either.

Mark at Umarex said on the video that they plan on releasing it in Dec. Hope there isn't too much of a wait before it get to Canada.

Stocks look like real wood, so let's hope it is. But that said, Umarex has been doing a good job with the fake wood stocks on the more recent airguns.

Any of the dealers have any info. Would like to hear any info you have on Canadian availability, est. price, etc.

Here is another preview video:

Good work Doc, in keep us updated on the new products.

I have been waiting for this, since I shot at the red star, 50 years ago at the C.N.E.

Uptill now, this is the closest I could buy. It's a King Arms Thompson airsoft, with metal receiver, metal magazine and real wood furniture. Kerr sling and I've aged it too.

Timber enjoys the time at the range.

2019-50 = 1969
i was 11. Dowling Ave/Parkdale.
t'was such the the day, and times, when my Ma would give me 2x paper tickets for the TTC street car on King St and send me and my 9yo bro off to the CNE for the day.

off at the Dominion Store, walk to the Dufferin Gates.

bearded ladies, the Wolf Boy (probably profound autism :( ), and then: "Siamese-"/now: Conjoined- Twins.

alas! no guns for me then, (now 164) or even plastic soft daggers from Woolsworth's....(+125 knives!)
..but it would be neat if I had watched you shoot, wishing.. one day.. :)

... and then wondering where my 9yo brother had wandered off to. HAHAHA

"DAMN YOU UMAREX-- DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL". (said in the voice of Charlton heston in planet of the apes.) I will probably just get my first old age pension check (February 1st)-- if and when this comes out in Canada. so food and bills first. hmmm can you open a go fund me page for airguns-- I wonder.

Ha~ I like the cat~ and that gives me a new idea to take gun photos next time using mine in the frame too~ 8-)

CNE... As a parent, a father, why my memory were only driving, looking for parking, yelling my kids and tire?! Looks my life is too negative..... Maybe it's because I can't just give a Pestro card to my daughter and let her bring the little brother to CNE by herself and give me a whole day of shooting time in home? Just like 50 years ago?

Oh... They don't need a ticket to take TTC now...
