    T&S also leaves out the fact that you need a special 60 degree chamfer bit for the 3/16" holes and a regular 11/32" chamfer bit.

    I think that the weaponeer plate having the trunnion holes and a finished pintal hole probably put it over the top.

    The brasscartridge plate has no trunnion holes and the pintal hole is undersized.

    This is the drill guide that BC supplies with his plates.

    Keep in mind you MUST start with a .250 thick plate and mill it down to .187 leaving the island in the middle so that FA parts can not be installed.

    A finished .187 (3/16") plate (all by itself) without the island is a machine gun according to the BATFE

    I beat you to it, LOL. I was just re reading this thread and noticed that.
    The finished size for the pintal is 9/16" not 1/2"

    Don't you think that by you sending a T&S RSP off to the BATF you might just be throwing T&S and their customers under the bus. You could be opening a huge can of worms.....I hope you have had some dialog with T&S before you send 1 of their RSP's off to some tech in the BATF.......JMHO

    yeah I thought about that last night and decided it wasnt my place to do any such. I was really just asking other members thoughts on the plate to possibly save somebody some greif down the road. In reality these are advertised openly for sale on the internet so to think batfe hasnt already looked the T+S site over would be silly. You are correct not my place to be concerned

    I built my 1919 on a ORF side plate and a gunthings.com kit. Man are they fun to shoot.
