    Default building a 1919

    finally got a 1919 kit. it should be here monday. im planning on posting progress pics and whatnot but it will probably be slow going at first because im in the middle of redoing my kitchen right now.

    cabinets just came in so i got some work ahead.


    but im sooooooo excited.

    Until you get the ammo bill....

    Someone makes a 7.62X54R conversion for these, might be worth a look?

    Converted mine back from .308 to .30-06 as it was a bit cheaper. You can also set them up for 8mm, although that ammo isn't as available as it was. The 7.62X54R kit isn't currently in production but can still be found.

    The M1919 is one of the easier kits to build and a blast to shoot. The only drawback is that you need a chain drive wallet to feed a belt fed gun.

    Shootin' a beltfed is the most fun that can be had, with all your clothes on.

    I noticed you have the bolt hold open strap in the top pic but didn't mount it on your RSP. Did you have a reason?
