    Default 1919 build

    so I am planning to get a 1919 kit....i have seen 80% side plates for sale....i guess then i need to get the semi trigger and sear kit, and then i need to machine the bolt and stuff....how hard is the bolt to machine?
    Overall how hard is this gun to build?

    I am building one now. the receiver is fairly easy, some drilling and riveting. the internals are pretty simple, but the metal is hard so it is a slow process. there are drawings of the internal mods on the 1919 board. ORF makes a decent 80% side plate and has the rivet kits and trigger and sear you need.

    I did one last week in a little over a day with an 80% plate and semi trigger and sear from MGS. A couple of hours to do the machine work to the internals. Buy a couple of carbide endmills, I did all the machine work on mine with one 3/8 carbide , $10 atrax from enco, but a spare is nice incase you break one , also need a 1/16" tslot cutter, about $8 at enco, I would buy 2 of those also as the high speed stell cutter will dull fairly rapidly, I roughed the slot with one and then did cleanup with the second. slooow spindle speeds, light cuts, slow feed and lots of coolant. After that its all just assembly.
    that deal above from akrat sounds pretty good

    Don't forget to budget for all the accessories you'll need to shoot it. With a 1919 build, the gun ends up being a minor expense.

    If you are looking for a 80% RSP, I highly recommend one of these.

    7.62...how much was the rsp you got from brasscartridge?
    I am really considering milling my own bolt...i've got a smithy lathe mill combo, would this suffice?

    al machining done
    KPMtrigger and sear installed
    engraved sideplate %80
    rivits.
    I bought one of his warlier deals less side plate and work is well done
    cheaper i think than to do yourself with all the tooling you have to buy for milling.

    $105 + $10 shipping

    Besides the machining, there is also some welding involved.
    The trigger slot in the lock plate must be built up so that a FA trigger will no longer fit.

    If you are going to have somebody else do the machining/welding for you, go with hangman15.
    Do not use 30calmachinegunner
