my mini 1919 22lr build
Before I started the build I drew the entire gun in solidworks 3d modeling software, here are a few 3d views and cutaways
Looks damn cool and cheap to shoot.
How much did it cost?
WHat did you use for belts?
How much machining did it take you?
Cost including the tripod, all the gun parts and the T+E mechanism was $1326 , less than a full size 1919. Came with one cloth belt, they have clothe belts as well as links avail .
The work required wasnt bad , the right plate comes as just a laser cut blank as the finished profile , you have to machine a few slots, the charging handle slot and drill a few holes to finish the plate, the bbl has to chambered . the only other work other than the hand fitting and finish is to drill the 7/16 hole in the trunion for the bbl and a 1/16" hole for the lower feed pawl. There is a little fitting of the grip casting/back plate . All the operations could be easily done on one of the little $450 bench top mills from harbour freight .
here is a before and after pick of the right plate which would be considered the receiver
the left plate is done and can be layed over the right side blank and a couple of transfer punches used to layout all the holes , which can be drilled on a std drill press here is a pic of both plates ready to install
forgot to mention the bolt and top covers which are the key to this system are completly finished and ready to use other than filing a little radius on the bolt and a little polishing and parkerizing
That thing rocks. :thumbup1:
I just had one of those "gotta have" moments.
Very nice! I want to see the mini crankfire!!!
Sweet! That thing is awsome!
that little things cool. I am shocked to read that you didn't build it from scratch like all the other cool stuff you get into. But I know that you have a day job to....
