I aquired a semi auto 1919 browning in 308. The only problem is that it field stripped. I am not that good at putting things together. I am looking to find a gunsmith in the OC to slap it together. Any info would be helpfull. Thanks

You should find someone who can show you how to set the headspace. 1919A4.com have a good tutorial. If it is field stripped, putting together is a 2 minute job that only takes a screwdriver but the headspace is user adjustable and some times needs to be changed from one ammo lot to the next. Besides, to clean it properly, it needs to be field stripped. You should look for another shooter who can walk you thru it if you don't understand the tutorials.

I called one gunsmith and told them I had a 1919 browning. They asked me if its a shotgun or pistol.

Well that was the wrong guy !

Did this gun come with a semi auto RH side plate? And a semi auto trigger and sear?

I think we need a little more info.

The gun was a complete gun. The owner passed away and I aquired the gun. I am 99.9% positive all the cards are there.

You might check with the guys at OC ARMORY, they had an Allied 1919a4 they used to shoot.

They might be able to help out putting it together for you, and show you how it's done.
