I forgot to ask - was this a parts kit that you had built up, that you built, or was this a full gun that you bought as a completed unit?

They just got used to it

Range day yesterday didn't go so well for the 1919. After the first 20 rounds, one little piece of metal in the lock frame fell off (I guess when they modified it to semi auto the piece no longer stay in place) I managed to put it back and made it stay with a small hammer thanks to my buddy Chris who happen to have a tool kit in the car. Another 30 rounds and the bolt failed to extract the case (the case was stuck in the chamber) and the extractor lip got broken, so the gun is out of commission for the rest of the day. Now I have to find a replacement for the bolt. Bummer, if **** really hit the fan, I guess I have to go to plan B: run for your life

But other than that we have a great day at the range yesterday. It was beautiful though I got a pretty bad sun burn.

there's nothing like fixing a gun with the ultimate tools... a Rock & a Hammer!!!

p.s. stupid bolt! by the way, anyone ever headspace a 1919 (in .308/7.62x51) before? it's just a regular ol headspace check, right?

on a side note... my FAL worked GREAT! and at least Loc got to shoot off the rest of his .308

they used to do that in WW2, with the air cooled version. From what I remember the troops called them stingers. John Basilone did that on guadalcanal with the Water cooled version.

It's always those fine details that screw up everything.

I've always been of the opinion that if and when the S actually H's The F., us "gun nuts" will be the first ones to feel the splatter.
So much for everyone's 1919 holding off the JBTs when a laser-guided bomb appears in our living room and delivers it's message.

How do you check how much the parkerizing is left? 250 rounds in under a minute? Are you talking about full auto or with a crank fire and 250 rounds link? LEGALLY, I cannot have any of that. I'd be happy if it just goes BANG

I don't know whether it's a good thing or bad thing that .50bmg rifle is banned in CA. For a gun nut, it's a bad thing, but it's a good thing for the wallet. Otherwise, nothing will stop me from getting the 50cal M2HB next I'll probably just sand down the tripod and repaint it.

Chris, the picture on the wall belongs to one of our employees, she used to have an art gallery in downtown SJ.

Yup, hopefully I can bring it out this Sunday if we're not too busy.

I got the complete rifle from another guy on 1919a4.com who built it from a kit. I wanted to build it from kit but it would require to have proper tools for riveting, welding, and parkerizing, so I went ahead and bought the complete gun for instant gratification . Sometimes you can find good ones with good price on gunbroker.com but 1919a4.com is a good place to start

awesome!

for when SHTF, you should bolt on little wheels on that tripod - it will be like a <STRIKE>shopping</STRIKE>ASSAULT cart!

It's not a carried weapon but meant to be mounted on tripod or vehicle. Although I can carry and fire this thing at the same time, I have no intention of doing that when SHTF. Nonetheless, it's an interesting idea I might have to try that

like this guy:

DRH, unless you're shooting on private land or out in the desert where no one's around, most ranges don't allow rapid fire and you can't link more than 10 rounds at a time, so at 3 secs/round, the most I can do is 20 rounds/minute. Btw, nice job on cleaning up the tripod and the gun

1919_4_ME, very nice gun, the green finish is awesome, who's the builder for your gun? Maybe the ammo can holder is a little bulky, but other than that it's excellent

Around 10am to early afternoon. Not sure how accurate it'd be at 200yd, but you can also access the 100s, 50s, and 25yd pistol range right next to it. I like the 200yd range just because of the longer distance, more challenging than the 100s, and more suitable for long range rifles.

However, the 200yd is limited to about 15-16 positions and only opened to public once a month (4th sunday of the month), so it's first come first served, better to get there in the early am to make sure you can get a spot.

by the time you carry it a mile, you will be HAPPY to discard it and settle for a mere .22lr auto.

What you don't have a GPS scrambler? Piff.

Seriously, that short 1919 is giving me all kinds of idears.

Wasn't someone here working on a SAW-like righ attaching a 200round can to the bottom? That and an EoTech...

Well, previously old threads would time out and die, never to be found again. i wonder if that is still the case. If it is there are some threads that should be kept alive.
