    Default Yet another 1919 thread...

    Spent some time working on a M1919 kit today. Izzy parts kit, ORF 80% right side plate. This one will end up as a A6, seems fitting as the grip doesn't have the T&E slot in the bottom.

    Got all but the bottom rivet holes drilled, had to slot the pintle bolt hole a little as it was slightly off center and the front trunnion slot needed a little widening. Compared to an building an AK reciever it was a piece of cake.
    Only real dissapointment with the ORF plate is the engraving, looks like it was done with a CNC electropencil, it's shallow and the wrong font for a Browning. Bottom picture is the engraving on my Daves 100 RSP for comparison. Saving it for my next 1919.

    That's a nice 1919!
    That's also a kick-ass bench!

    Damn fine looking weapon. The ORF engraving is a bit shallow, isnt it? Its only about .08 to .010 deep. If you do anything but just lightly pass over it with the blaster it just flat gos away. I buy the plain plates and have Tom Sawyer engrave them. His engraving is .013 to .015 deep and he will put anything you want on them.

    BTW, I believe your back plate is a late 1917 version
