I just finished my mini 1919. Fully functional in 22LR. I built it from a Lakeside kit. I did put a longer barrel on it to make it 16.5" and pinned the tripod so it would only transverse about 30 degrees to keep the OAL long enough. It ran both links and cloth belts with no problem today. I can't wait for my next trip out of the PRK so I can use more than 10 rounds in a belt.

wow, thats nice. How much did it cost you to build that. Could you put up a link to where you got that kit. I would love to build one of those.

That's what I thought! Actually I was more interested in function today. I was getting about a 4" group with 10 rounds fired at 25 yards as fast as I could pull the trigger while I giggled.

The kit I got from http://www.lakesideguns.com/

It does require a mill to finish it. Cost about $1300 and takes about 80-100 hours of work to finish it. But the finished guns go for about $4,500. As I said, it had a barrel about 12" and the tripod would rotate 360 degrees allowing the OAL to be to short for CA standards. I decided to have a 16.5" barrel made for it at extra cost and I pinned the tripod to restrict the transverse to about 30 degrees. It is the same as a fullsize 1919 or M2 federally. But my comfort level with CA laws I felt that by doing this would end the debate as to how CA would classify it.

if we order the kit can you help us out when it comes to milling. We would be glad to pay for your time.:D

Unfortunately I don't own a mill yet. I was lucky to find at my local gun shop a guy with a machine shop that would let me rent time on his machine. He taught me a lot as I went a long. He also turned the longer barrel from a blank that I bought. One of the guys on Lakeside's form does do some of the machining. He sold at least one kit that had the machining done but all the hand fitting left to do. It had to go through an FFL and I don't remeber how much it was.

Congratulations. I can't wait to see (and hopefully shoot) it!

CSACannoneer, While I won't see you in April, maybe we could meet in Coalinga one weekend. Besides our 1919's we could bring the 50's and pull targets for each other on the 1000 yard range. Email me and we'll set something up.
