View Full Version : Browning 1919 A4 vs A6

Hi all.
I am working on a 1919, I know the A4 is ok in CA but does anyone know if the A6 is ok or does the stock put it in the AW catagory (because of the pistol grip)
Thanks in advance

I believe the A4 has the pistol grip (but the pistol grip is in the back, so is above the so-called 'imaginary line').

The A6 has a 'shoulder stock'.

As far as I know, both are OK.

Thanks for the info. Anyone know where to look or which statutes? Couldn't find anything at DOJ site.

they are both legal. go to 1919a4.com if you have questions about this or want to read the actual law.

This was just brought back up on 1919a4.com, here's the link for you to read. There's also a letter in there from the DOJ, it's all legal.


How much more do you have to do? You just missed a big SoCal build party.

Can't see how either configuration could be an issue. The evilness of a pistol grip is defined as "protruding conspicuously below the trigger" IIRC. Others have stated its defined by the position of the web between the thumb and forefinger as it relates to the trigger (ie. above or below).

Considering the pistol-grip is practically on top of the trigger on the 1919, I can't see either being a problem. But then, IANAL.

I know the A4 is fine, at least 3 people here have one or more of them.

Ohio Ordnance is where I got mine, nice kit, looks like it has seen very little action over its life.

Tripods are freakin expensive. I got drawings and am contemplating building my own, but man, this is gonna be one expensive toy.


I can't wait to take her out.

The A6 kits are great and easy to take to a range and set up. You get quite a few looks when you belt up. Then you get the guy that insists that you are going to jail (maybe, but not for my 1919).

I just can't imagine guys jumping out of planes with those things (plus ammo). It's hard to just bring it to and from the car.

Don't put the A6 flash hider on if you build an A6. Also, some ranges will pitch a ***** if you shoot your A4 at their range because it doesn't have a buttstock. I have an A4 and it eats cheap *** indian ammo like candy! :D
