Thompson M1A1 submachine gun

Manufactured by Auto-Ordnance Corp. c.WW2 for the US Army - serial number 432620.
.45ACP 20-round detachable stick magazine, blowback fully automatic, parkerized finish.

The M1 series of Tommy guns, made for the US military, differ from the previous 1921 and 1928 ‘overstamped’ models by having an horizontal front grip - a feature shared by the earlier military M1928A1 - a rougher finish, a non-finned barrel and more importantly a bolt actuator situated on the right of the receiver, no longer on top of it. They also couldn’t accept the 50 and 100 round drum magazines that make the Thompson submachine gun iconic to this day.

A Thompson M1921 with a 100-round drum magazine. Note the blued finish - earlier models were much fancier than military one.

These front pistol grips make me fucking cringe everytime I lay eyes on them.


Unlike other protagonists would in his shoes, Gao never cared before that he couldn’t use Future Force at will. Not once has he ever questioned how to master it or has the thought even crossed his mind. He has yet to go into anything thinking “if I use Future Force here” or “I need it” because power isn’t important to him. It’s only when he realizes that he can’t help Tasuku that he begins to regret it.

Gao’s maturity is one of the subtle things that’s still hella consistent with this show and it’s why he’s my favourite character.


“It’s a handshake. You are going to be my buddy, right?”

“I’m no hero. I prefer to go by the Mighty Sun Fighter.”

“You’re now officially my biggest rival.”

“I’d much rather you’d be my friend!”

“It’s just that thing he said, that winning is everything. I used to be that way too.”

Introduction / Friendship

Everyone Gao met in the first five episodes.

~ Oh My Devil

(1.) 1921 Colt with 100 cartridge Type “C” drum magazine.
(2.) Early 1928A1 with 50 cartridge Type “L” drum magazine. If this gun were fitted with a vertical foregrip, it would be a 1928 Savage.
(3.) Late 1928A1 with 20 cartridge box magazine. This version eliminated the barrel fins and all knurling of the operating handles, and replaced the adjustable rear sight with a stamped one.
(4.) M2 with stainless steel receiver fitted with an M1A1 trigger housing, electronic red dot scope, and 30 cartridge box magazine.
(5.) 1927A1 Semi-Auto fitted with a modified 1928A1 TSMG trigger housing, special Richardson barrel, and 30 cartridge semi-auto box magazine.
(6.) M1/M1A1


Calico Liberty I

One of the current production(?) carbine modesl of Calico’s helical drum fed 9x19mm firearms. The Liberty I from what I saw on their website is the collapsible stock version with the factory muzzle brake. Note the 100 round drum. In the second photo you can see the downward facing ejection port that spits the empty casing down instead of out the side. These carbines are marked Liberty I on their receivers but when Calico first started business this model would have been known as the M-951.

♣ ThievingxNori Give away! || In celebration to 100+ followers and Holidays!

                             *Drum rolls* Tada! *drum rolls stop*

     This was the surprise, I am doing a small (VERY SMALL) give away in celebration of going over 100 followers and with a small wink to the holidays (Christmas and New year). The reason I say very small is because there’s no major big prizes or anything like that, just four small tokens of gratitude I’ll be giving away. This doesn’t mean that those of you who don’t win I love any less of course. It’s just a small thing I want to do because I am really, Really happy and grateful to the people following me and supporting me. 

     Initially I didn’t want to do anything, but seeing as it’s the Holiday season and I did kinda ‘party’ when going past 100 followers I decided to go against my earlier idea and hold a give away. It helped that Nori came back from one of his adventures and had some nice ‘jewelry’ with him. Now Nori isn’t that much of a ‘necklace’ person himself so to help me out, he’s offered me four necklaces to give away to the lucky winners. (Sorry guys out there, who don’t like necklaces, this is the price, of course if you like necklaces feel free to enter!) Now because initially the necklaces are the same apart from some ‘design’ differences I’m going to have the following rules. But first let me show you want you can win:

ThievingxNori’s Small give away rules~

1. Must be following me.
2. Reblogs count as a point (chance) to win. (only one reblog counts, like count as one do both get two points!)
3. To get an extra point should you want it following my art blog, gives an extra point. 
4. One prize per person
5. I will ship worldwide, no matter where you are at. It will be send my envelope. This means in order to collect the prize you have to be comfortable with giving me your address. 
6. Winners will be announced 3rd of January. I will send an ask or IM to you to which you have to respond with your address. 
7. The first place winner will get first pick on their design. Second place winner gets to pick over three remaining necklaces. Third place will get to chose between two remaining and the forth place will end up with the remaining necklace. 

I can’t make this officially a rule, because I’m not big brother. (Nori is to Ori but that’s beside the point) but I would appreciate it if you didn’t just follow me for the give away only to stop following me afterward. This is something meant for my followers. And please don’t hate me if you don’t win! There’s no way I’m going anywhere anytime soon so there’s probably going to be another give away another time. Please keep in mind that there are just small trinkets and nothing super fancy as well. This give away is all about fun, and me (the mun) giving something back to my followers, friends, roleplay partners and people that I’ve come to love in a really short amount of time. 

Thank you so much to everyone for the support; For the love and for the friendship and good times. I hope I have the pleasure of being on this site, as ThievingxNori and proud Nori mun for a long time to come. I will be posting/reblog this once every week to not spam you.
