    Maybe after that, if IMA still has Vickers kits............................
    I know what you mean, I have considered buying 10 oow's to have on hand.

    Even if you spent your gun money you can give up breakfast and lunc, and eat dinner everyother day. You can get a lot more stuff then!!

    Handm, now that is a TOUGH decision, however here is what I would do based on the fact that the oow bar is also on my list of must haves.
    If you don't have a beltfed you really need one, I have 2 1919's and love them, they are easy to build and fun to shoot, the vickers is more of a rarity and will really be a head turner when done, and will be worth a lot more than a 1919. So,
    1. buy a grade "B" 1919 kit from oow for $299.00
    2. Get a Vickers kit.
    3. the OOW bAR's won't be ready for several months, so put your name on the list, make a sign that says "addicted to guns, need $$$"
    and stand at the exit to the closest freeway for an hour a day after work. by the time the BAR is ready you will have the $$$ for all 3 guns!!

    Actually my small (hahaha) addiction to guns already costs me a small fortune each month. i have been getting myself into trouble lately.

    i just bought a egyptian hakim and all the accessories ( i got a great deal on mine im finishing up the transfer right now.)

    this is planning for next year. yah i know the 1919 are not as rare as the vickes but the ammo and parts are easier to have.

    pirate for the build on the vickers i know you are going to be doing a tutorial.

    im just wanting to clarify:

    i buy a kit from ima ( assuming you guys dont buy them all up on me.) 700 $
    your buddy supplies the semi parts and machining to make it a semi auto 400-700 $
    i buy a right side plate from your guy. 1-300 $
    i assemble the kit. which i hope is not going to be too hard. 20-40 hours
    i have you or the other guy refinish it. 1-200 $
    then it works. is this the jist of it. THIS IS JUST FOR ESTIMATING COSTS.

    i looked on the us ordnance site and im not sure if they sell the belts. it was sort of confusing, do you have any other sources for cloth belts.
    i like the idea of the maxim links.

    us ordnance looked like they were looking to start doing semi auto's again on their web site. it says august of 2006. i wonder if they are back to producing the vickers again
    they are asking $4000 each.

    will the vickers tripod also work on a 1919?

    what other tripods will work for this.

    I know im asking alot of questions but im sure others have the same one's i do.
    i know your reputable guy so if this is doable im all in. I like the odd guns and this is right up my alley.
