    Question Converting 1919 to 8mm

    Im going to be building a 1919 soon(once i get the %80 in), but i just cant afford to pay $200+ for a case of ammo, so i want to convert to 8mm, i need to know what i have to buy/modify, i checked, the guide they have makes no sense.

    Bassicly i see ill have to change a few feed parts, and buy/modify the correct barrel, thanks for any help guys.

    Basically you will need an 8mm bbl the ammo store has them for $129.00
    a 30 06 booster
    an 8mm cartridge stop, you can pay $40.00 for one or easily convert a .308 one for a lot cheaper angola also has these

    For an excellent plate go to

    I will be starting my second one soon and will be posting a tutorial.
