Have you seen the series "Suns of Guns"? Its about a Louisiana gun smiths, Red Jacket.
They did a commision for their local Sherrif's SWAT team.
They took reproduction Thompsons, which were single shot versions.
They converted them to auto fire, changed the barrels to heavier ones and these things were capable of emptying a 30 round mag in seconds!
They tried a one hundred round drum mag but it was too heavy (26lbs) and bulky for SWAT use.
When they demonstrated the conversion to the SWAT team, these guys were like kids in a toy shop!
