    M1928A1

    The M1928A1 variant entered mass production before the attack on Pearl Harbor, as on-hand stocks ran out. Changes included a horizontal forend, in place of the distinctive vertical foregrip ("pistol grip"), and a provision for a military sling. Despite new U.S. contracts for Lend-Lease shipments abroad to China, France, and the United Kingdom, as well as the needs of American armed forces, only two factories supplied M1928A1 Thompsons during the early years of World War II. The weapon was mostly used in the U.S. military by the Marine units in the Pacific Theater. Though it could use both the 50-round drum and the 20- or 30-round magazines, active service showed the drums were more prone to jamming and extremely heavy and bulky, especially on long patrols. 562,511 were made.

    I think this might come from the FN SLR , LMG set up , marines used to carry LMG ( Bren) up until after the Falklands war, the mags from these would fit nicely on to a SLR giving it a 30 round mag.

    The two reasons I've heard mentioned why they soon stopped using them in the British army, were that the drums were awkward to carry compared to the box magazines, and the fact they rattled quite loudly when carried.

    In particular the 50 round drum was heavy, but the 100 round drum was insanely heavy and large. Niether could be easily stashed in existing webbing.

    Also both of the drums rattled when moving. They were ditched for use with Special units in the British Forces for that very reason.

    There was plenty of existing webgear to carry the "L" drums and the "C" drums as well.
