    Default Another ammo eater belt fed project

    I hooked up with a guy on another site who lives in the Ft. Myers area and went over friday and got the receiver for my 1919 built. It still needs a couple more rivets and the big trunnion rivets need to be ground but the main part of the receiver is done. He is also building a semi auto mg42 so I am going to do the mods to his bolt and grip in exchange for him machining my 1919 internals.
    I want to get an 8mm setup for this thing as you can get 70's production yugo ammo in 1919 links for about $27.00 a 250 round can. A lot cheaper and easier than using .308.

    Looking good

    As Dan always sez "Happiness is a Belt Fed Weapon"

    Looks like an ORF semi RSP ??


    Did I do that?

    I've had all my parts and pieces including a crankfire for a looooong time now. I need to get off my ass and put it together. Your post and picture might just motivate me. Keep us posted on your progress. I used to live just north of Ft Myers at Punta Gorda. I could never find a good place to shoot down there.

    Yes, it is an ORF side plate. It seems to be pretty well made and heat treated. I have never had a problem with anything from them.
    This project was way down on my list of projects, but I figured I would junp on the oppurtunity to get the receiver done with out spending any money for tooling. All I really need to finish it is a tank big enough to park the receiver, and an 8mm bbl setup, and a set of TNW spade grips, and a linker, and................................
    Does it ever end?

    ORF makes an excellent RSP. Many, many people use them. I lean towards Sam's plates cause he has the rear 1-2 inches additional hardening and provides certification from the heat treater but it does take some time to get one from him. All in all, probably really doesn't matter much.

    I bought a 1918 belt loader for $500 a few years ago. At the time I thought that was an outrageous price, but now the price for one is really outrageous.

    Yea, your right, I don't think it ever ends......as if I really need more ways to spend money

    Receiver looks great !!!

    I know what you mean, the price for these alone can easily reach the same price as that for a good AR-15
