    Default More belt fed fun

    This is in no way meant to be a tutorial, there is already an excellent one on the m1919a4 forum.
    This is more like a journal of my first attempt at one of these builds.
    I've gathered all the necessary parts and equipment so here goes.

    For those unfamiliar with a m1919 build, the RSP (right side plate) is the receiver according to the alphabet boys.
    I bought a 80% RSP from brasscartridge on the 1919 forum. excellent piece of work, I highly recommend.

    Turning a 80% RSP into a finished "receiver" is mostly drilling, counter sinking, filing/fitting etc.
    The only required tools I did not already own were a 9/16" cobalt bit and a special 60 degree counter sink (available from Brownell's).

    This was todays assignment
    Here's pics at both 80% and finished.

    cool looks like your almost there, Did my build earlier this week, machining the bolt was about the most time consuming part. If you havent ordered one yet the sear and trigger from MGS are top notch, trig is very heavy duty and uses a nice coil spring instead of the clothes pin type

    I finally got a chance to spend a little more time on this.
    I got the front cartridge stop, rear cartridge stop and pintle pad riveted on.
    The side plate is now ready to be riveted back on.

    I was a little concerned about deforming the front cartridge stop when riveting it in, so a made a little jig.
    The stop is 5/8" long, so I scrounged up a piece of 5/8" bar stock and drilled a "N" hole through it. This made the face of the stop perfectly level with the top of the bar. Voil?, instant jig.
    It worked perfectly, keeping the stop at exactly 90 degrees to the plate while pressing.

    M1919 trunnion rivet vs AK trunnion rivet.

    I don't think either My Plinker jig or My Pookie squishers are going to be much help here

    Looks like you are a few hours from shooting it. I had a problem with mine when I went to test it friday. It turns out the accellerator stop fell out. luckily I found it on the floor and welded it back in. If it works all it needs is to be parkerized.
