I recently got in a 1919 kit from weaponeer and was kind of suprised at the finish of this kit. I had gotten one of the kits in the past when the prices were a few bucks more, but had to jump in again since they dropped. The finish is comparably different between the 2 kits. Also, one of the rivets that holds the left side plate on, has been ground off. Are we to the bottom of the barrel or did I just get one that had been used quite a bit more than the others. I will be refinishing it anyways, but was just curious as to the difference in wear.

We're not at the bottom of the barrel but of my own personal kits you can tell there is big difference in the finish between them. One of them looks like it was hardly used while a couple of the others have been used quite a bit. All of them were ordered together and at the time Gary didn't know me from the "time to make the donuts" guy.
The kits that we are currently offering are the same kits we've always offered. We didn't drop the price because of the condition of the kits. In general, most have been happier with the current kits.
The condition of the metal itself is the important part. I will send you an extra rivet for that left side plate, Josh. Gary probably just missed that when he was packing it.

Thanks for the explanation Shortrnd. It looks like I'm going to start getting busy on these kits that have been sitting around for a while. This evening I sat down for a couple of hours and drew a 1919 RSP in Solid Edge. I plan on dumping it into MasterCam in the next few weeks and working out the tool paths. It should be easy from there...need a to pick up a few new cutters though. What do you guys think about my solid models?

I wish I had the brains to do that stuff.....hehe

where can i get all the parts so i don't have to do any milling? can i buy pre-modified semi auto parts?

there might be a few guys that are doing parts exchanges but I dont know of any right now. THe best thing and cheapest is to get on the machining group buy over at weaponeer.net

Don't forget about to get a crank for your build! There are 3 available now that I know of, The Crankfire from Emory Jones, The Blacksheep from OhioBlacksheep, and a new one...not sure of the name but Orin has them listed on his group buy list. All can be found over at 1919A4.com.
If you'r going with a MG42 AA tripod...1919-4-Me has a deal on the pod and a pintle adapter with 2 .30 cal can rests with feed ramp and link sute. Feed from the left can and catch links from the right can...brass out the bottom. Also a T&E is included all the above for $350.00. This is the set-up I'm useing, works great!! And about 1/2 the price of an M2 pod. I'll tell you up front the AA pod is not as stable as the M2,but, I hang a "sandbag"(2 25lbs of lead shot in a camo sand bag) from the center hook and another one on the front leg. Greatly improves stability.
I also have the Crankfire, It will out run the cyclic-rate, around 500 rounds a minute,yea baby,dump a 250 round can in 30 secounds!! If you run one of these you'll be hooked!
I just put a 16" shorty barrell and jacket on mine,headspaced and am ready for the Spring shoot,WHOOT!
I don't sell any of the above so please don't think I'm spamming! Great site, I think I'm gonna hang around. Lots of great info and guys over at 1919A4.com to answer any questions you might have or if you need help!
Here's a few pix of mine on the pod with crank! click on pix to enlarge(Ihope...been a while:drunk: )
