    I'm a M1919 newbie, so far still rounding up parts.
    I have a kit, spare barrel, rivets and a MG42 tripod adapter.
    The internals are going out this week for machining.
    I'm waiting on ORF to get some RSPs and KMP to get some more triggers and sears.

    The pricing on tripods is scary, the ones I've seen go for $800 to $1000. (M2's w/T&E)
    I found re-pro's for $500.
    MG42 AA pods can be had for under $100, so I bought one of these adapters.
    I kinda like the thought of being able to stand up while firing, but I may add a M2 later.

    I got this on a GB for $210. it holds two ammo boxes, one for the ammo and one to catch the links.

    In this shot, you can see the T&E that comes with it.

    Wow, that is an excellent looking setup! I bet it would work great with a set of spade grips. I guess I need to get one of those tripods now. I am kicking myself for not getting one from SG when they were $79.00

    The ammunition store has them in three different grades.

    MG084.1
    $149.95 - New in box
    $129.99 - Very Good
    $99.95 - Good

    Look under MG42 parts.

    Thanks for the links and pics.Just got two going- tested them Sat.I just got the Izzy A6 setup from Numrich for $150 I think.Not as cheap as some but it had USGI A6 flash hider and was in VG/EX condition.Someday I want to build an AA mount like is pictured on the Crankfire site.Too expensive to shoot much but it looks too cool.I can see that these things are 60:1 ratio weapons...link an hour to shoot a minute.
    It's only metal, it's not magic.

    Looks good Pirate

    I was going to build one but got a good deal on a slightly used ORF 1919A4 so I just went that route.

    I can't wait for the ATF to appoved a semi Maxim.

    I have been considering a maxim, the ammo is real cheap and the gun is really cool looking.

    I also like the way they look, mostly when on the wheeled mount
    The cheap ammo is the main reason I want to do one.
    I'm thinking of doing the 8mm to the 1919 but that will have to wait a little for some funds. But I'm starting to get some linked ammo awhile, I can always use it in the Mauser if I don't do the conversion.

    The Ammunition Store's AA tripods are decent I got the $100 one, it's in good shape only the paint was scratched & chipped on it, no dents and everything worked like it was supose to.

    Thanks, that's good to know.
    I was on the fence on which one to order.
    Scratched paint doesn't concern me since I'll be rifinishing everything to match anyway.
