I wanted to be certain, it is my understanding that a semi-auto M1919

does not have a protruding pistol grip and therefore does not require a BB, but the links can hold no more than 10 rounds- correct???

Correct. Unless you happened to own +10 high cap links prior to the ban while in CA.

It's not a rifle, and is therefore completely exempt from the AW laws.

It CAN have a "pistol grip" as defined by the AW regs and it's still exempt due to lack of a buttstock.

The AW regs only apply to rifles, shotguns, and handguns. A 1919 in that configuration is just a Title 1 long gun.

I guess you could use one of these on an AR with hi caps:

I believe you could although its not very permanent. but I guess it would still be dros'ed as a long gun so it shouldn't matter aslong as you put it together in the right order.

Yes you could, as long as no buttstock was EVER attached to the receiver before you attach these spade grips. You could not only run hi-caps, but you could have a forward grip and flash hider :)

Correct. Permanence doesn't matter. For example, to get around the 30" restriction for semi-auto centerfire rifles, you can add a non-permanent muzzle extension.

1919A4 configuration is fine.

Pre-2000 belts can be used too.
